Subject: Re: [ebxml-bp] ebBP 10/10/2005: Specification and Logical Bus Documents

just want to be clear here, i think a logical document is a document NOT a model.  I think the the ebBP description sounds like they mean "document model" not "document".

also, i dont want to get into "term warfare" but stephen's definition is the interpretation taken from software engineering, ie "logical" disk storage versus "physical" disk allocation.  mine is taken from information modeling where a logical model is a data model that describes in an abstract way how data is represented. it has more detail than a conceptual model but does not include the design considerations and implementation parameters found in a physical model.Both are valid but we need to know which one ebB means.

Tim McGrath raised an interesting question on the ubl list:
what exactly is meant by logical business document? Tim's
understanding was that it was a document's model. Mine
was that a logical document is one that may include other
documents but is regarded as just one document 'logically'.

I reckon this needs some exact agreement and definition
since it clearly has different possible interpretations which
could make a big difference to this matter.

mm1: Agreed. We will discuss in today's call. Thanks.
