Subject: Proposed Response to second comment

Regarding Specification: SOA-RM (policy and contracts) --- policy is going to play very important role in SOA. SOA service first has to be policy oriented, which means that policy has to be involved from the full life cycle of SOA service development from development to runtime. Therefore it should be beneficial to develop SOA policy reference model in which it could define capabilities, policy information model, policy language/computing, etc. The current version of SOA rm on policy is little vague. If Users can  derive concerete product from SOA policy refence model, it would be great.



1. The TC agrees regarding the importance of policy and the RM includes numerous mentions of policy and an in depth discussion in section 3.3.2.  While an SOA policy reference model may be of value, it is beyond the scope of the current effort.


2. This TC recognizes that there are several other organizations that are developing standards, specifications around the concept of policy.  We would like to forward this comment to them for their consideration to include some form of reference model in their work.  We will forward this comment to various WS groups and the W3C who are working on the issue.


3. The subcommittee working on our Reference Architecture for SOA will also likely provide further clarification on the concept of policy with respect to SOA in their work.
