Subject: A consistent use-case for primer

Hi Folks,

After our primer telecon yesterday, when I hastily withdrew my 
objection to using a stock brokerage/portfolio management example, 
for various reasons I don't want to belabor in this message, I got to 
thinking about it some more and decided I really don't think that it 
is a wise choice after all. I have been banging my head against all 
the older scenarios, and was reminded in most of them that there were 
problems here and there with most, as well as with my own current 
project, building a presentation of WSRP and CAP (Common Alerting 
Protocol) from the Emergency Management TC.

One of my concerns was that it would be best to have one example 
follow through the tutorials we put into the primer, and that this 
example be used for demonstrating the publish, find, bind features in 
the Registration Interface, including use of both UDDI and ebXML, in 
keeping with our plan to offer real-world examples and code (examples 
and code that would work, that is, not the actual Portals or Services 
of the example). It must also fit with demonstrations of the Service 
Description Interface, Markup Interface and Portlet Management 
Interface, all of which it does.

So, while going over the primer thus far and continuing to review the 
use cases and scenarios we have dealt with in the process of building 
WSRP 1.0 and moving now into issues for 1.1, I decided that I could 
offer an alternate example by adapting the "Search UDDI..." scenario 
Andre worked up and which is available in the documents section of 
the WSRP webpages.

However, before I actually include it in my edit of the current 
primer and start asking for assistance in building some sample 
portlets and a Portal Design exercise as part of the Markup 
Interface, I wanted to share this idea with you all and ask if it 
makes sense to you and if you would be willing to use it.

 From our Scenario Form Description: HealthCareConcerns, LLC., is a 
Portal development company, specializing in horizontal Medical 
Information Resources (Medical Informatics), including a searchable 
database of insurance providers, and vertical Medical Supplies 
procurement/supply chains. It develops a broad range of 
Healthcare-related Portals using domain-specific expertise from 
related but unintegrated market segments in order to focus on making 
itself a Healthcare Information Clearinghouse.

HealthCareConcerns, ILLC., designs and builds specialized sites for 
knowledge-base delivery clients, by integrating domain-specific 
Portlets into Portals that service a range of information providers 
from specific niche markets to more broadly based Heathcare market 
segments, such a Home-based Elderly Care Products and Services or 
Maternity-related products and services. It will use UDDI and ebXML 
to publish its services and the services of its Portal clients and to 
search for new Portlets, based on an initial profile it makes of its 
specific clients.

While some of the expertise and knowledge I have developed over the 
last several years can be used in this, it is not strictly an 
instance of the proof of concept Public Healthcare Preparedness 
Portal I am working on. However, I won't say that it doesn't also fit 
into other plans I have, but I always try to make any project serve 
more than a single purpose if I can.

This scenario also provides what I think is a decent range of the 
kinds of Portals and Portlets WSRP can facilitate without either 
relying on either well-used examples such as stock market/brokerages 
or purchasing orders. Of all the previous scenarios the one I would 
have chosen as both simple and fairly straight forward was the memory 
configurator, but it has a couple of problems, mostly due to its 
being a customization example, which is a bit ahead of 1.0.

Please let me know what you think. I am asking the markup committee, 
too since this is probably where I will be asking for samples 
regardless of which scenario we choose to follow through with for the
