Subject: FW: Versioning and Compatibility Issues from ebXML JC


Pete is soliciting input on an old issue we submitted to the OASIS
Technical Advisory Board.
I think the origin of the request was in the messaging TC, but it is
relevant to all of us in ebXML TCs.

I can act as aggregator for the JC of any additional requirements and
comments, and send them to Pete.
So post comments and requirements to your TC list and CC me, and I will
bundle everything up and send it from the ebXML Joint Committee to the

Subject: Versioning and Compatibility Issues from ebXML JC

Hello, Dale.  The TAB received this request from the ebXML JC some time
back, and we are now in a position to make some progress on it. Do you
have any further input (additional requirements or suggested
implementation ideas) on the schema versioning/documentation standard

As to the second point, the TAB is developing a flexible map or model of
the standards landscape, and it is my feeling that this can be used to
capture the compatibility relationships desired.  We will take this as
input into the design of its infrastructure.

The ebXML JC would like to submit the following input to the OASIS
Technical Advisory Board.  Could you please submit it on our behalf?


(1)  We feel there is a need for an OASIS-wide way to implement shema
versioning and documentation across OASIS approved schemas.
More generally, specifications should include a formal representation
of their version number, e.g. using a common XML document format.
All this would make it easier to obtain, query, and process the
version number
of an implementation.

(2) We also feel there is a need for a common way to represent
compatibility links to other specs.  While the ebXML Joint Technical
Liaison Team  is developing an ebXML standards compatibility matrix, a
formal way to code a compatibility matrix (for integration as well as
is required across OASIS, ideally a model that could be processed by a
and well understood across specifications.
