Subject: Draft notes forAug. 30 CPPA teleconference.
ebXML CPPA Technical Committee Teleconference (Non-Voting) August 30, 2001 Attendees Arvola Chan Tim Collier Tony Fletcher Neelakantan Kartha Kevin Liu Dale Moberg Himagiri Mukkamala Peter Ogden Marty Sachs Brian Hayes Jean Zheng Sinisa Zimek Preliminary Discussion Dale reviewed the status of the issue of moving the 1.0 CPPA specification from EbXML to an Oasis standard. We have met the "clerical" requirements for doing so if the TC wishes to do so. At the second Thursday voting meeting of September, any motions for pursuing this can be introduced and processed. No motions are necessary, of course. Dale and Marty reviewed what was known about other groups and some of the arguments, pro and con, for doing so. Marty reminded us that we need to be concerned that it could be a distraction to have the specification undergo review. Dale reported that MSG intends to submit a 1.1 version later this year, and we should attempt to follow with a 1.1 CPPA once MSG has quiesced. Marty's comments: 1. There may be a logistical and/or "marketing" problem with releasing the 1.1 CPPA spec much after the release of the 1.1 MSG spec. 2. There is a concern that the world will not view an ebXML CPP/A specification as a standard, but an OASIS specification would be would be accepted as such. 3. On the other hand, the public review period required as part of the OASIS standards process, and the potential resulting rework to the 1.0 CPP/A spec would be a distraction and potentially impact the 1.1 work. 4. If there is a way to get 1.0 through the process without the review period, Marty would be in favor of it. Otherwise, he recommends not spending any effort on it. Dale mentioned that he was currently aiming for a March release of the CPP/A 1.1 spec, but was looking into the possibility of moving this up to better align with MSG 1.1. Teams Negotiation Marty noted that some comments have been submitted about the Negotiation draft. Marty did not believe any of the comments reflected major issues; many raised questions of scope and priority which will be resolved as the group moves closer to a Requirements document. Kartha emphasized the need for top down clarification of negotiation, and empasized the importance gathering any new requirements for the document in addition to commenting on the existing content. Dale wondered whether having bare SOAP as the default protocol for negotiation would be regarded as a major issue, and urged that the negotiation protocol elements fit within a lightweight and minimalistic binding. Messaging Arvola reported on a MSG subteam meeting devoted to creating the MSG issue database. He reported that David Fischer had agreed to draft the new detailed version of RM for the 1.1 draft. Security Tim reported that he sent out a couple iterations of an Security Issues document that lists and classifies a number of items to be worked on. Most importantly, he wants the CPP/A TC to have a unified position on the 1.1 issues prior to the upcoming October face-to-face meeting with MSG. Open Discussion Dale reminded us that the formal comment period for CPPA closes today, and that work should commence on constructing the issues database. Tony, on vacation, was unable to protest! Arvola asked whether the discussion about non-repudiation relates to the business process level. Marty thought not; the CPA needs to specify whether the MSH should be configured to do NR at the messaging level. Putting the NonRepudiation element below DocExchange within the CPA says that this is a function of the MSH; if a need for NR at a higher level exists, then it should be specified at a higher level in the CPA. Next Meeting We will have a non-voting meeting next week on Thursday, 11:30 am - 12:00 Eastern time (USA). Dale will send out the new calling details for next month's teleconferences.
