Subject: [Artifact Identification Requirements] where to put RDDL documents?
Section 6.1 of draft 15 outlines the use of namespace declarations that use a URL that resolves to a RDDL document. Lines 521-522 state: All such OASIS-defined http scheme namespaces MUST resolve to an OASIS server, in particular oasis-open.org. I think we need to work out some of the details on where this RDDL document should live in HTTP space. For example I wouldn't want a reference that looked like: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/documents.php?wg_abbrev=ws-rx&ns=ws rm I *would* like a reference that looked like: http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ws-rx/wsreliablemessaging-01-protoc ol.html In other words, I think the RDDL documents that serve as the resolution points for XML namespace declarations should be treated as near-permanent (like the charter of a TC) and avoid the use of parameters etc. Obviously this is going to require co-ordination with the people that run the OASIS website. The other issue is that there needs to be more detail about which of the metadata components should be used in the construction of this URL. I winged it above and used [product] -[schemaVersion] -[artifactType] .html, but it should really be spelled out. Gilbert Pilz Sr. Principal Technologist Office of the CTO BEA Systems, Inc.
