Subject: Oops, Sent too soon: RE: SOA RA SC Needs to Spread Word on 60-DayReview of Ref Arch

Oops, I hit the Ķend Button before copying the announcement:

Thanks Tom, Hi All,

I am copying Mary McRae's official notification 
letter announcing the 60-Day Public Review of the 
OASIS Reference Architecture for SOA. I am also 
copying our subcommittee so that they know that 
this set of constituents has been contacted with 
the notice.

We on the Reference Architecture Subcommittee of 
the SOA REference Model TC  would greatly 
appreciate it if you could give our work a good 
going-over. We want it to be as thorough and 
complete as we can within the constraints of 
readability and usability.

Here's the announcement:

To OASIS members, Public Announce Lists:

The OASIS Service Oriented Architecture Reference 
Model (SOA-RM) TC has recently
approved the following specification as a Committee Draft and approved the
package for public review:

Reference Architecture for Service Oriented Architecture Version 1.0

The public review starts today, 9 May 2008, and ends 8 July 2008. This is an
open invitation to comment. We strongly encourage 
feedback from potential users,
developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving
the interoperability and quality of OASIS work. Please feel free to distribute
this announcement within your organization and to other appropriate mail lists.

More non-normative information about the specification and the technical
committee may be found at the public home page of the TC at
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=soa-rm. Comments may
be submitted to the TC by any person through the use of the OASIS TC Comment
Facility which can be located via the button marked "Send A Comment" at the top
of that page, or directly at

Submitted comments (for this work as well as other works of that TC) are
publicly archived and can be viewed at
http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/soa-rm-comment/. All comments submitted to
OASIS are subject to the OASIS Feedback License, 
which ensures that the feedback
you provide carries the same obligations at least as the obligations of the TC

"This document specifies the OASIS Reference Architecture for Service Oriented
Architecture. It follows from the concepts and relationships defined in the
OASIS Reference Model for Service Oriented Architecture.  While it remains
abstract in nature, the current document describes one possible template upon
which a SOA concrete architecture can be built.

"Our focus in this architecture is on an approach to integrating business with
the information technology needed to support it. The issues involved with
integration are always present, but, we find, are thrown into clear focus when
business integration involves crossing ownership boundaries.


"The Reference Architecture has three main views: the Business via Service view
which lays the foundation for conducting business in the context of Service
Oriented Architecture; the Realizing Services view which addresses the
requirements for constructing a Service Oriented Architecture; and the Owning
Service Oriented Architecture view which focuses on the governance and
management of SOA-based systems."

OASIS and the Service Oriented Architecture Reference Model (SOA-RM) TC welcome
your comments.
