Subject: Re: [emergency] Use Case

Hi everyone,

  I'm probably jumping into a conversation where I shouldn't, but from what I'm reading it sounds like you're attempting to define levels of conformance, which should be included in the specification's Conformance Statement section. Take a peek at the document prepared by the OASIS Conformance TC a few years back and you'll see a good discussion around establishing such levels of conformance.

TC Members,

We would like to nail down the TC's consensus on what constitutes a "Use case" in our Standards.  Most of you have been aware of this topic but we have not nailed down a position.  We must do this before we can make the big push to get use cases for HAVE and RM. 

This topic came up during the EIC meeting yesterday.  There are several EIC members that know of companies that may want to be the first or one of the first to advertise such a use case.  We need to give them specific wording on what constitutes this "use".  OASIS requires the statement to be in agreement with the conformance clause of the specification.  We as a TC can cause this to be more or less stringent and there are schools of thought on both. 

Please review the two positions on the matter identified below and respond to the list on your preference.  Although this does not require a formal vote of the TC, I want to make sure we have a good understanding and consensus on how we proceed.

Position 1:
  • Comply with the full element reference model - required elements at a minimum.  If a message is sent that complies with the ERM, then you can be compliant with any of the specific messages.
  • Deliver a RequestResource message and a ResponsetoRequestResource message (just 2 messages).
If a vendor does either or, for purposes of statement of use and getting the standard out the door, this should be the minimum requirement.

Position 2:
  • Agreed with position 1
  • A complete lifecycle of a "successful" Resource Deployment should be the minimum:
RequestResource >
ResponseToRequestResource >
RequisitionResource >
CommitResource >

The messages about the deployment, requesting information, release, etc are not necessary, just the 5 listed.

NOW - please make your comments to the list.  The Mst/Not SC will schedule a meeting either Fri (4/18) or Mon (4/21) to discuss.  From this a recommendation will be made.  Respond to this message too with which date and what times you would be available.
