Title: New registry software installed in DRIve

TO:  DISA Registry Initiative (DRIve) list

We completed the installation of DRIve's new software from XML Global, which now supports version 2.0 of the ebXML registry specifications.  Many thanks to Zuzana Mosna and David Webber of XML Global for their help in getting the new package installed, and to Greg Lear, DISA's IT director, for connecting the wires (literally, in some cases).

We thought at first that we needed to change the Web address for DRIve, but you can reach the registry at the same address as before.  When in doubt, you can always find the DRIve site at http://www.disa.org/drive/

We have started the transition out of DRIve's prototype phase.  You will find that we added the IFX Forum's new version 1.3 specifications.  Also, we gave a demo of DRIve last week to the OpenTravel Alliance Board and Interoperability Committee to get that group started on making futher use of the registry.

Comments and questions are always appreciated.  Best regards.

Title: Standards registry metadata project, and other news

TO:  DISA Registry Initiative (DRIve) list

Standards registry metadata project

At the Interoperability Summit two weeks ago we heard a report from Karl Best of OASIS and Bob Hager of ANSI on the development of common metadata to represent e-business standards in registries, certainly a subject of direct interest to DRIve.  Karl, Bob, and their committee from organizations in North America and Europe have identified 16 elements and 10 attributes for describing standards, and their work looks quite promising for achieving the kind of interoperability among registries that we are seeking with DRIve.

The committee has draft of the metadata available for comments at http://www.ansi.org/dds/ROOM_70/Public/standards%20reg%20metadata%20def%20v2.5.pdf .  You can find the Web site for the committee at http://www.oasis-open.org/stdsreg/ .  And an article on the Interoperability Summit (authored by humble self) is available on XML.Com at http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/07/10/interop.html .

DISA has offered DRIve as a test site for the committee‚€™s work.  As with most other voluntary committees and working groups, this one is eager for more ideas and participation.  See the group‚€™s Web site at http://www.oasis-open.org/stdsreg/ if you would like to take part.


Other news

XML Global, whose software we use in DRIve, has released a new version of its registry software.  We are in the process of loading it on DISA‚€™s systems and migrating the current prototype content to the new release.   The new software supports version 2 of the ebXML registry specifications.  We anticipate a new Web address for DRIve once the migration is complete.  We will, of course, let you know immediately once it is available.

Many thanks again for your interest and participation.  Best regards.
