Subject: Re: [wsrp][all] WSRP Bi-Weekly Phone Call August 8th 9 am EST

Dear WSRP TC Members,

here is the proposed Agenda for the WSRP TC Call, Thursday, August 22nd, 9
am PST / 12 pm EST / 6 pm CET:

Report on Specification Progress

Duration: 10 min

Spec Editors

Issues/Questions about Spec Draft

Everybody should please read through the WSRP 0.4 Draft very carefully and
give comments in the call tomorrow or by e-mail in the remainder of this

Duration: 10 min

WSRP Implementation and Compliance Test Suite

Let's discuss the roadmap for a free open source implementation as well as
for a compliance test suite.

For the latter, there seems to be agreement that a compliance test suite is
very userful/required. Please think about what your respective companies
might contribute to the compliance test suite and what might be used as a
basis for the test suite (e.g. testing frameworks).

Duration: 40 min

For reference, here's the Open Source Implementation proposal as well as
what has so far been discussed regarding a compliante test suite.

WSRP Open Source Implementation Proposal

Home: Apache Jakarta

Provide a framework for WSRP producers that allows for simple
implementation and deployment of WSRP services.
Integrate with the JSR 168 reference implementation, allow to publish and
expose portlets as WSRP services.
Provide examples and tools to help implementing WSRP services.
Provide WSRP Portal Consumer and simple Consumer for testing WSRP

Programming Language:   Java

Application Server:     Apache Jakarta Tomcat

SOAP Implementation:    Apache XML Axis

WSRP Programming Model: WSRPlets (simple servlets exposed as WSRP services)
                        Portlets (JSR 168) exposed as WSRP services

Producer side:
- Framework/Runtime for WSRP Producers based on Tomcat
- Integration with JSR 168
- Various Example WSRP Services to teach the public how to
  write WSRP services based on the WSRP framework
  (e.g. simple Flight Schedule, Stock Quote Service,
  News Service, ...)

Consumer side:
- Simple WSRP Client
- Portal Client based on JSR 168 Reference Implementation
- Stateless Consumer ?

Proposed Roadmap:

Keep implementation in WSRP TC until Spec is well defined and
implementation is reasonably complete, then open-source the code in a new
open source project. Go towards this goal in three steps:

Phase 1. Prototype and Demo based on early WSRP draft as of September
Finish for 3rd Face-to-Face Meeting September, 9th.
Distribute implementation to TC members.

Phase 2. Complete Implementation of Final Draft for WSRP 1.0
Specification as available in November

Finish for 4th Face-to-Face Meeting November 11th.
Distribute implementation to TC members.

Phase 3. Open Source WSRP Implementation
Finish by January 2003, complying to WSRP 1.0 Specification
Found Open Source Project in January and donate initial code to Open
Source Community

WSRP Compliance Test Suite

Home: ???
      Alan's opinion was that this should not be open source, but owned
      and controlled by the WSRP TC (Alan, please correct if this is

Programming Language:   Java

SOAP Implementation:    ???

Compliance Test Cases for WSRP Consumers
Compliance Test Cases for WSRP Producers

Proposed Roadmap:

Prepare Compliance Test Suite based on WSRP Draft as of after
the September Face-to-Face

Finalize implementation based on the WSRP Final Draft to result from
the November Face-to-Face

Who should do the work:
The compliance test suite should not be done by the same team that works on
WSRP implementation to avoid consistent errors or misinterpretations of the

IBM Contribution:

To enable a quick start for the WSRP open source implementation, IBM is
willing to do the following work:

Initiate the new Open Source Project at Apache Jakarta with the charter to
implement and maintain a free WSRP implementation and potentially tools,
e.g. for publishing WSRP services to UDDI.

Provide and fund the project lead for the new Apache open source project.

Implement a modular, servlet-based framework for WSRP producers that will
allow WSRP services to use JSPs and taglibs for rendering markup, integrate
with the JSR 168 reference implementation and be able to expose portlets as
WSRP services and donate that as a starting point for the Open Source
Project to cover the "Framework for WSRP Producers" and "Integration with
JSR 168" parts of the scope proposed above.

IBM wants to provide working prototypes for phase 1 and 2 (see above) to
the TC and probably also via alphaworks

IBM may provide the source code for phase 1 and 2 prototypes to the
interested WSRP/WSIA TC members under an IBM CDA.
