Subject: Re: Publishing Normative Java artifacts

Hi Dave,

  I'm getting everything ready to announce the Public Reviews, but don't seem to have the updated namespace document from SCA Assembly...

As soon as I can get that I'll be able to get everything announced.

  And thank you for the nice, clear way you put the requests together - there's a lot of different files to get uploaded in the right places and this was a huge help.

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.

Hi Mary,

Here's the proposal I mentioned in the other email thread.  Some
explanation is necessary, which I've tried to provide.  Speaking in person
might be easier, so I'm happy to do it if necessary.

I've attached the first two pages of our CAA spec to illustrate, with
change marks that embody our proposal. Please ignore the line numbers, they
are not part of the proposal.

The SCA-J TC has voted a new CD04 (which I have not sent to you yet), and
as part of that vote the SCA-J TC would also like to publish 4 additional
1) A zip archive of the Java APIs. This is Java source code and is
considered normative.  I've added a new section called "Java Artifacts"
after "Declared XML Namespace(s)" which has a URI to this proposed new zip
2) A jar archive of compiled Java code. Developers and implementers of the
spec would find this very handy. It is non-normative, so I added a URI for
it to the "Related Work" section.
3) A zip archive of the Javadoc for the Java APIs.  This is something that
developers and implementers of the spec would find very handy. It is a set
of HTML files that can be downloaded and exploded by developers and spec
implementers to use as reference material when writing Java code that uses
the APIs.  The reason for downloading the zip is so that the material is
available when not connected to the internet. This zip is non-normative so
I've added a URI for it to the "Related Work" section.
4) An exploded (or online) version of the Javadoc for the API.  Again, this
is useful to developers and spec implementers, but would be hosted online
by OASIS. This material is non-normative so I've added a URI for it in the
"Related Work" section.

(See attached file: sca-javacaa-1.1-spec-cd04_frontonly.doc)

The above is all in addition to the Word, HTML, PDF of the spec itself, the
XML schema files for the spec, and updates to the namespace RDDL that
points to all of this stuff.
