Subject: Proposal for Registry REST Interface subcommittee

Enclosed below is the proposal for creating a new subcommittee to focus on creating a REST interface for Registry.
This will be an agenda item for the next TC meeting to discuss.
Anyone interested in technical details / participation / contributing - please feel free to contact me directly to discuss.
Thanks, DW

"The way to be is to do" - Confucius (551-472 B.C.)
Proposal for REST interface development SC for ebXML Registry.

In keeping with the TC Charter focus on developing future versions of
the OASIS ebXML Registry Specifications with consideration of related
technologies adopted by other forums - the REST sub-committee will
develop a specification document to allow implementers to develop a
complimentary optional REST-based interface for Registry (the REST
support will follow the REST principles). This will not replace the
existing interface - but augment the access methods
that Registry can support based on the existing RIM and APIs. The SC
will first formalize the scope and use cases to be addressed using
REST-based interfacing and then develop formal mechanisms and
specification details to implement that. This will be tailored to
ensure focus on rapidly attainable results.  The goal will be to
support a limited common set of use cases, rather than an extended set.
One particular use case will be to support development of AJAX-based
user interfaces for registry. If REST is determined to be poorly suited
to support a particular interface mechanism then that will be simply
documented and noted. Later work may then optionally address this when
better understanding and practical experience provide better insights.

Deliverables for the SC:
- Slide Presentation: Includes, Use cases, Requirements, Motivations,
Assumptions and Overview of Technical proposal.
- Detailed Technical specification on REST-based Interfacing which
  the sub-committee will deliver for review by the Registry TC.
- Paper on "REST-based interfacing using the ebXML Registry". Venue for
submission of paper will be determined later.
Schedule for the SC:
- Deliverables due within 6 months from start of the SC effort.
Provisional Chair: David RR Webber (subject to approval vote)
