Subject: OASIS SDD TC Formal requirements
Dear ACS WG members,
attached you will find a link to a document that has been approved by the OASIS Solution Deployment Descriptor Technical Committee as the formal requirements for the SDD specification. This document is a result of compilation of over 200 use cases brought by TC members including representatives from your workgroup. We appreciate your input and we believe that we have captured the requirements needed to meet your use cases. Please take a look at the requirements and provide feedback through your representative, Keisuke Fukui.
In addition to these requirements, in our recent face to face meeting the SDD TC voted to work with representatives of the ACS WG to try to converge ACS's AAD with relevant portions of the SDD. Work has already begun in this area and we look forward to agreeing on a converged mapping of key elements necessary in both sets of specifications.
We understand that you are nearing approval of your V1.0 specification and any changes would most likely be reflected in later versions of the ACS specification but we believe this convergence is important to industry acceptance of both specifications and look forward to working with your representatives on this matter.
