Subject: FW: [Fwd: FW: [emergency-adopt-docs] EDXL Product Directory Data Fields]

I agree with most of what's in Patrick's spreadsheet, with the following

Line 9: 'Company logo'--this will only apply to OASIS Sponsor-level members.

Line 15: 'InterOp Demo link'--I thought this was a good idea when we
discussed it, but when it comes to implementation, I can see a lot of
problems. What pages would we link to? Some interops have a posted slide
presentation or video that would be good, but others interops, such as the
one we did at NIEM,
http://events.oasis-open.org/home/ei-summit/2009/participants don't provide
much really useful info after-the-fact. Also, I'm not visualizing how these
links would be displayed. If we continue our practice of 3-5 interops a
year, this list could get really lengthy. I recommend we stick with a simple
yes/no for 'OASIS Interop Participant' at least to start.

Line 17: 'Link to Vendor's RKB entry'--Who would input this, the vendor? How
would it be displayed on the page? Again, the yes/no checkbox for this is
useful as a filter, but it would be much more straightforward for vendors
(who want to) to include this link in their Product Description text box.

Line 19: 'Link to vendor's STEP evaluation report'--Ditto

Patrick's asks, Does the Vendor make one entry into the database for each
product-spec-version? Or does Vendor make one entry into the database for
each product & be able to select all spec-versions that are supported?	
I say the later. If one product supports multiple versions of a spec, the
product gets one listing in the directory but that listing has multiple
checkboxes in the "Specs" filter.

Please forward the email below to Carol, with attachment, which was approved
by the C&D SC on 23 Feb to be added to the EM Product Director Requirements.
The  C&D SC also requested that the assigned OASIS IT person join the next
SC call at 10am ET on 9 Mar to discuss these requirements with the SC
including the questions posed in my email of 18 Jan.

Subject: [emergency-adopt-docs] EDXL Product Directory Data Fields


After struggling to answer the questions today about what the search should
look like, I stepped back to consider what data a vendor would have
available to enter into the product directory. Attached is  DRAFT of some
thoughts on those data fields.  Doing this helped me to see that we need to
engage with the OASIS IT staff person on questions about whether the
available Drupal software models can support relational data fields with
one-to-many relationships.  This will determine whether a vendor needs to
make one entry for each of their products and then be able to select
multiple specs/version from a drop-down list, or whether they are limited to
selecting only one spec-version per product entry.  See example I included
in the attached spreadsheet.

Are there other data fields needed?
