Per my AI from last meeting I have created an uploaded a document 
describing proposed changes to the RS spec for 3.0 in the area of HTTP 
interface. In particular a new File Path based URL is included in the 
proposal as the main item for TC review prior to tomorrows meeting.

The document may be downloaded at:


Kathryn would it be possible to set aside about 15 min in tomorrows meeting to do a WebEx based demo of the proposed File Path based URL feature? Is so I will setup WebEx and send details. 

Please be advised that (sadly) WebEx only seems to work on Windows Explorer. You  
should visit http://www.webex.com/dailydemo/index.php to test your browser setup prior to the meeting.

We have several opportunities for Interop Demos this year.  We need to let OASIS know in which ones we would be interested in demonstrating by June 15th.  Comments?

Subject: [chairs] Interop Demo Opportunities

Dear TC chairs,

The Consortium is making plans now for an exciting fall/winter with some great opportunities for OASIS InterOps. These public interoperability demonstrations showcase multi-vendor implementations of approved OASIS work. Usually hosted in connection with a conference or trade show, OASIS InterOps are official Consortium activities, endorsed by one or more OASIS TCs, and mutually supported by OASIS staff and OASIS InterOp participants. 

Staff will provide assistance in promoting and organizing these events, but the real energy (and scripts) comes from the TC leadership and members.  TC participants demonstrate the usefulness of a spec, and its practical availability across a range of vendor platforms.  

Prior InterOps have generated tremendous energy and strong trade press for the work product.  Public InterOp events are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate real, shippable standards-based solutions for e-business problems.     

Several conference organizers are interested in featuring OASIS InterOps, they include: 

1) Delphi (4-7 Oct, BPX 2004)
2) OASIS Open Standards Days (4-8 Oct.)
3) Gartner (15-17 Nov, Applications Integration and Web Services Summit)
4) IDEAlliance (XML 2004, 16-18 Nov) <http://www.xmlconference.org/xmlusa/>
5) RSA (23-27 Feb) <http://2004.rsaconference.com/us/c4p/>

If your TC has an approved OASIS Committee Draft or OASIS Standard, or expects to be at that stage prior to these events, we encourage you to consider conducting a multi-member InterOp.  However, in order to make arrangements, we need to hear from you by June 15. If there is another conference at which you'd like to demonstrate, please let us know. We are ready to work with you to coordinate logistics, participation, and promotion.

Clearly, conferences organizers want OASIS InterOps because they recognize the quality of the work of OASIS TCs and the growing market power of open standards. Your diligence and efforts to advance open standards are much appreciated.

Thanks for sharing Joe.

This reminds me of the need for doing an update on the Publishing Web 
Services TN to add details on how to publish QoS attributes for Web 
Services and how to use those QoS attributes for Service discovery. Our 
existing specs handle this use case already but the details need to be 
spelled out.

I propose we add this to our next TC meeting's agenda. Thanks.
