Hi David,

So glad to see you using freebXML Registry :-)

One request. Please post questions related to freebXML Registry to the 
ebxmlrr-tech mailing list after joining it from:


Next, JAXR API only exposes a Java interface (not described by our 
specs) and the details of the transport used to communicate with
Registry are implementation specific. The freebXML Registry uses the 
SOAP interface defined by our specs to have the JAXR provider talk to 
the registry.

The freebXML Registry implementation supports all 3 HTTP binding options 
but they are accessible via HTTP GET not JAXR API.

Not clear what it is you are asking. Our specs do not allow retrieval of 
partial objects (as in just one attribute/column). Objects are fetched 
at the granularity of a RIM type. SQL queries may specify values of any 
column in the relational schema for match.

Please clarify precisely what you are trying to do.

Finally, again I request that you please post your next reply to 
ebxmlrr-tech and move this thread unless you have a spec issue to 
discuss here.
Thanks for using freebXML Registry.
