Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] Comments on the RA Introduction

These definitions do not help me much understand how a reference architecture is realized. Mapping and patterns are much too vague or if you pardon the expression "abstract" to do that. We need some higher level organizing paradigm.

I do not necessarily think that the current MetaBlurb has satisfied the requirement, but it is a first try.

I'm also doing a read-through and generating comments.

The Introduction portion of the wiki (http://wiki.oasis-open.org/soa-rm/Introduction, not the Introduction chapter http://wiki.oasis-open.org/soa-rm/TheArchitecture/MetaBlurb) has several useful definitions of reference architecture and I think these should be worked in instead of just creating another one.

I'd also suggest adding to Danny's suggested wording below

Common abstracted elements from several standards will also be elements in some sections of this SOA reference architecture; however these element names are only used to avoid needless generation of new terms and the use does not represent endorsement of the referenced specification or a requirement to incorporate the specification in a complete reference architecture.

For the section, "What Is A Reference Architecture?"


Would it be sufficient to convey the intended meaning
using the Architectural Analogy and not the Machine

In addition to defining the relationship of Patterns
to the reference architecture, I would also like to
express something like the following:

The SOA reference architecture (RA) provides a bridge
between the conceptualization of a SOA and the
implementation of a SOA. The SOA reference
architecture models the abstract architectural
elements for a SOA a layer above the technologies,
protocols, and products that are used in the
production of a SOA. Common abstracted elements from
several standards will also be elements in some
sections of this SOA reference architecture.
