Subject: RE: Ballot results - Approval of ebXML Registry specs, version 3.0
Thank you Jamie! The team has put in a lot of hard work and dedication to produce these documents, and we appreciate your compliments! We are planning to move forward rapidly as we know a number of communities are awaiting the version 3.0 specs but of course the timing will depend on the type of comments we receive and if there are any substantial changes required. If the revised processes go into effect while we are in the middle of this process, will that impact our specs? I assume that if we are in the middle of things we complete them under the guidelines in effect when we started, is this correct? Here is a list of features and enhancements with the version 3.0 ebXML Registry specs. Please let me know if you have any questions about these or would like additional detail: -HTTP bindings -Registry Managed Version Control -Query Enhancements: * Iterative query * Parameterized stored queries * Improved filter query syntax -Content Management Services * automatic semantic content validation * automatic content cataloging, and plug-in support * content based queries -Federated Registry * federated query support * linking of content and metadata across registry boundaries * replication of content and metadata among registries * moving of content and metadata from one registry to another -Access control and authorization based on the XACML 1.0 standard -Content based Event Notification -Federated Identity Management support using SAML 2.0 Single Sign On (SSO) -Alignment with recent standards * Web Services Security: SOAP Message Security 1.0 * Web Services Security: SOAP Message with Attachments (SwA) Profile 1.0 * WS-I: Basic Security Profile 1.0 * WS-I: Basic Profile 1.1 * SAML 2.0 * XACML 1.0. -Extensibility of registry protocol where new types of requests and responses may be defined easily. -Human friendly URNs as the id of a content or meta data item -A new standard meta data type Person has been added to represent persons. -The XML Filter Query syntax has been greatly simplified to make the query more expressive while requiring less verbiage Additionally, I just found Robin Cover's article, which summarizes most of this. http://xml.coverpages.org/ni2005-02-14-a.html Kathryn Breininger -----Original Message----- From: James Bryce Clark [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Monday, February 14, 2005 6:41 AM To: Breininger, Kathryn R Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com Subject: RE: Ballot results - Approval of ebXML Registry specs, version 3.0 Kathryn, congratulations to you and your team. Your public review will expire on 14 March. Under current rules it is possible -- but somewhat tight timing -- that the TC could act to confirm the drafts, elect not to make any changes, and submit it the next day (15 Mar), with the result of an April OS vote. Of course, this makes the untested assumption that no changes will be requested during public review that the committee wishes to incorporate. And it assume that the mandated 10-item package  would be assembled during that period, and so completed by 15 March. Among other things those rules require successful use statements from three organizational members of OASIS. The rules will change quite soon, FYI. See . Your short list of enhancements/changes from v2 to v3 would be a significant help to Carol as we compose a public message. Also, it's likely to be a useful input to the 10-item list mentioned above. While I am officially somewhat neutral about these things, obviously my longtime acquaintance and friendship with your team makes me doubly pleased for you about this achievement. The Registry is an excellent example of how we *should* create standards: concrete, useable work that met its well-crafted business requirements and goals, and deservedly enjoys broad early adoption as a result. There is a significant community of users who I know will be pleased to see this update.
