This was to avoid bloat of things that embed the uri, like wsa:Action MAPs. We also chose to omit the date, and instead append a version number that increments if and when the namespace changes incompatibility (I know this is an area where there can be much debate). Also the current draft of the naming guidelines states that URLs SHOULD be rooted at the docs domain, and the tcShortName MUST be the next node in the URL after the base. Have you considered using the WSN / WSRF convention? It would mean that the namespace URIs would be xmlns:wsrm=?http://docs.oasis-open.org/wsrx/rm-1? xmlns:wsrmp=?http://docs.oasis-open.org/wsrx/rmp-1? Peter Niblett WS-Notification TC co-chair "Gilbert Pilz" <Gilbert.Pilz@bea.com> 14/07/2005 05:24 To <email@example.com> cc Subject [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: XML Namespace URIs Title: XML Namespace URIs Description: We need to decide upon the normative XML namespace URIs that must be used by implementations of these specifications. Justification: Self-evident. Target: all Type: editorial Proposal: The namespace URIs for WS-RX-defined schemas should be URLs that resolve to RDDL documents that provide information about the schema as well as links to the corresponding specification(s). Per OASIS guidelines, the RDDL documents must be hosted by OASIS. Therefore the exact URL values will need to be co-ordinated with OASIS but, in general, they should look something like the following: xmlns:wsrm=?http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ws-rx/wsreliablemessaging-200507.html ? xmlns:wsrmp=?http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ws-rx/wsrmpolicy-200507.html? Note that the ?200507? in the URL is represents the schema version as a date (July, 2005).
