Subject: Re: [ebxml-iic] RE: impl guidelines,on the "technical" and "depl oyment" sides

Thus spoke Jacques Durand (JDurand@fsw.fujitsu.com) on Mon, Jun 17, 2002 at 07:12:34PM -0700:

In my mind, these were actually separate documents, because the
targets and content are quite different:

The Implementation Guide is aimed at software developers, to identify
and advise on various problem areas that may be encountered during
design and development of a product.  It answers questions like "What
actions must an MSH take if a Business Process specifies
isNonRepudiationRequired?" or "What is the procedure for verification
of a Signature element?"

On the other hand, the Deployment Guide Template I propose is to aid
consortia in specifying the items that need to be customized for their
particular user community; in most cases, these are software
configuration issues.  Examples:  "What digital signature algorithms
are allowed?", "What are the names of the Action elements, and how do
they correspond to this organization's business process definitions?"

Both serve to enhance interoperability, but at different levels.
