Subject: RE: [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: XML Namespace URIs
Peter, You and Chris seem to be in agreement on the basic form of the URLs. The only thing you don't seem to agree on is the form of the version information. Chris indicated to the editors earlier that he preferred to use a date stamp to indicate version. You'll have to ask him about his reasons for this preference. I don't care one way or another. I think its important, though, that we create an AI to talk to whomever is responsible for the OASIS site and make sure that they are willing and able to create documents that correspond to the URLs that we are proposing. Also, I am still working on the "XML Namespace URI Versioning Policy" issue. I'll send it to the list when I get the proposal worked out. - g -----Original Message----- From: Peter Niblett [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, July 14, 2005 5:26 AM To: Gilbert Pilz Cc: email@example.com Subject: Re: [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: XML Namespace URIs In the WS-Notification and WS-Resource Framework specifications we have adopted a more concise version of the URIs. 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> To <firstname.lastname@example.org> 14/07/2005 05:24 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/wsreliablemessagi ng-200507.html " xmlns:wsrmp="http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ws-rx/wsrmpolicy-20050 7.html" Note that the "200507" in the URL is represents the schema version as a date (July, 2005).
