Subject: RE: [regrep] Clarification of 3 implementations requirement

I guess the question though would be do you have to be using the
specification for your own implementation or do you just have to be
successfully using "an" implementation.

The only implementations that I know of are the ebxmlrr and the xmlg (or is
it formerly xmlg now known as yds?). Are there others?

So, if we (Adobe) are successfully using the os implementation for
demonstration purposes, does that count??

BTW, for those of you that may be interested, we will be doing our demo of
PDF/XML forms integrated with the ebxmlrr and web services on Monday at the
Federal Enterprise Architecture meeting for Web Services subcommittee. If
I'm not mistaken, it was Joe that developed the SF424 schema for egrants
that we will be showing integrated with the PDF version of the form.

If anybody wants it, I can send you a demo pdf file that shows how you can
get arbitrary customer defined XML data out of PDF forms. Of course, you
will need the just released Acrobat 6 to export the data as XML. As an
enterprise you can also collect the  data from users with just the free
Adobe Reader 6 once you have "enabled" the form with reader extensions.

Subject: [regrep] Clarification of 3 implementations requirement

Here is a snip from the TC guidelines for the 3 implementation requirement
prior to submission of a TC approved spec to OASIS membership for voting:

"Certification by at least three OASIS member organizations that they are
successfully using the specification. (Despite numerous requests, the OASIS
TC Administrator feels it is not in the TC's best interests to further
define the meaning of "successfully using". The implementation could really
be anything from prototypes or proof of concept all the way up to
shrink-wrapped software. Defining this further would only restrict the
definition and make it harder for member organizations to say that they are
successfully using the specification.) This certification can be in the form
of a simple statement in email from a company representative, e.g. "I
certify that XYZ company is successfully using...." The implementers must
also certify that their implementations comply with known IP encumbrances."

See http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/guidelines.php#spec_standard for
the full requirements.
