Subject: RE: [regrep] UK Govt regrep requirements

Hi Paul,

You may be interested in a demo that Adobe did for the US Federal Enterprise
Architecture group back in the spring which used the reg/rep for something
similar. Essentially what we did was to show various XML schema being stored
in the ebxmlrr (open source implementation of the spec), and how these
schemas could be searched in the reg rep to find the appropriate parts that
were then used in the creation of a PDF/XML eForm for eGrants. The eform
also showed integration with web services via SOAP.

So, in answer to your question, I would say that from our experience in
producing that demo for the US gov, that the spec certainly meets the
requirements and the ebxmlrr implementation is also capable.

Naturally, we'd be happy to do a similar type of demonstration for the UK

Subject: [regrep] UK Govt regrep requirements

Sorry I have not been as active here as I would like. For those who don't
know, I advise various parts of the UK Government on XML. Unfortunately,
nobody here is currently prepared to spend money on registries, but I am
working on this. My reason for joining this group was to represent UK
Government requirements in my spare time - something I have signally failed
to do so far.

I recently did some work for the MOD here, spending two days turning their
core schema (a collection of complex data types) into a repository of
fully-versioned types from which schemas can be automatically generated.
This is linked to their existing data dictionary through IDs and ASP code.

Whilst not a long-term solution, this has clarified the benefits of a
registry to parts of the MOD and elsewhere in Government and flushed out
some additional requirements. I now have permission to present on this
project and to talk to the regrep TC about it. I am currently preparing a
presentation that must be complete by October 14th. As part of a telecon, I
would be happy to make this available and talk through it.

What I would like to get out of this is:

* does the existing reg/rep spec meet this requirement?

* if not, is the TC interested in this requirement for a future release?

* Do any of the current implementations meet this requirement?

Note that the MOD is a simple case of the general UK Govt requirement. I
imagine that the needs are common across most Governments - it will just be
that some don't realise it yet.
