Subject: RE: [regrep-cc-review] How Should UML Be Treated? (Was: Re: [regrep-cc-review] Kickoff!)


I think you're taking my comment farther than I intended.  I merely meant that we have to ensure there is a mapping of the required metadata to the RIM, not that we have to define an API to extract the information out of a UML object.  How the metadata gets into the registry can take a number of courses that vendors can develop.  I think we need to provide the verification that the registry "can" capture the elements, not the "how".

>If that is the proper question, then my gut reaction is to suggest that we
ensure that the registry is capable of capturing the Table 6-1 information
and leave it to the implementer/users as to whether they also include the

more control over what goes into the registry than what goes in the


Precisely my point - if UML tool vendors / users want to store their UML
binaries as extrinsic objects - that's fine.  We need to make sure that
the right metadata and semantics is captured to facilitate CCTS in an
ebXML Registry - regardless of whether the user has a UML tool or

Republica have shown how to build such an interface using just
a Java component that is "CCTS aware".

Therefore creating the XML serialization is the right way to 
go to include Table 6-1 metadata content - and then, once
you are there - then you can build out from that - as the
CRI work illustrates - to include support for the "Big 3 C's".

Thanks, DW.
