Subject: [TN Proposal] Mapping Business Information Models to ebXML RegistryInformation Model (Was: [regrep] UN/CEFACT-ICG adopts freebXML Registry)

Yet another important thing I did not mention is that as we were discussing the 
mapping from CCTS UML Model to ebRIM UML model I suggested that the registry TC 
should create a TN titledsomething like:

"Mapping Business Information Models to ebXML Registry Information Model"

This TN would provide the generic patterns and algorithms for mapping any 
Business or Domain specific information model to ebRIM.

This is an idea that Nikola had come up with a long time ago. As I recall he had 
even made a list of such patterns at some point.

As more and more domains are adopting ebXML Registry standard they are faced 
with the recurring need to map between their info model and ebRIM. Currently 
this is being done ad hoc. With the proposed TN this recurring need will be 
nicely addressed.

I view the proposed TN to be very valuable indeed to the ebXML Registry user 
community. I expect the paper to be relatively brief.

I have spoken to Nikola about resurrecting his work in this area and he 
graciously agreed. During the course of next week Nikola and I will collaborate 
to put an initial draft of the proposed TN for the teams review.

Thanks in advance for sharing any thoughts on this idea and specially on the 
title of the note.
