1 An Update on XML.org Registry and Repository Una Kearns Documentum, Inc
2 Update on XML.org Registry and Repository l About XML.org l Registry and Repository Overview l Implementation Overview l Next Steps l Related Works l Q&A
3 XML.org Mission l Need to add some blurb (2 Slides about XML.org) l Industry Portal for XML...
4 Registry and Repositories l What are they? l Purpose? l Etc. l Why XML.org/OASIS doing l Who else
5 Registry and Repository Overview l Based on the work of OASIS Registry and Repository Technical Committee - chaired by Terry Allen CommerceOne l Prototype Implemented by Documentum and Sun with the help of many others l Specification used ISO as basis
6 Use Cases for Registry and Repository (2 pages) l Registering an XML related entity l Registering an XML related entity without deposit l Automatic system download l Searching and Browsing for XML related entities
7 Scope of Initial Implementation –Register as a Submitting Organization –Provide the ability for registered Submitting Organizations to submit schemas and other related resources at XML.org for registration –Life-Cycle of Submit Recorded Reviewed – Searching/Browsing –System download I2R
8 Life-cycle of Registration l Add one or two slides showing process flow
9 Metadata l Names (Title, Short) l Identifier (URN) l Description l Language l Type l Representation l Version l Submitting Organization Information l Contact Information l Dates –Approved –Created –Expired l Status l Classification l Keywords l Relationships and Associations l Rights (IPR)
10 Relationship to ISO l ISO/11179 provides a basis for this work l Not 100% compliant l Will aim to be for data element registration l Schemas are not a data element but a data- dictionary
11 Classification of Schemas l Proved a difficult problem l No one classification appears to meet requirements l Determined that Multiple Axis Required l Industry, Product, Subject l Classification Experts
12 URN Addressibility –URN Scheme for identifying resources Used notion of FPI Information we have available »Registration Authority »Submitting Organization »Name »Version »Language »Type URN:XML:RA_ID:SO_ID:Type:Name:Version:Language e.g. urn:xml:oasis:documentum.com:xml- schema:cdna:v1.1:en
13 Versioning l Versioning of Schemas not under our control l Discuss Issues
14 Ideal World (Relationships and Mappings) l Every data element would be mapped properly l Everything received would be semantically be mapped l Not real world l etc...
15 Architecture Overview Web Cache Tomcat XML (metadata and resources) Web server XML.org Registry & Repository Human Interface System Interface (HTTP ) Externally Hosted
16 Architecture Overview - Next Steps Web Cache Tomcat XML (metadata and resources) Web server XML.org Registry & Repository Human Interface System Interface (HTTP ) Externally Hosted XML
17 Relationship to other Work (2 slides) l DESIRE l NIST l EBXML
18 Next Steps l Prototype currently under testing l Improve in many areas –Currently experimenting with XML interface –Capturing richer relationships l Move experiences feed back into RegGrep Spec and into EBXML
19 Feedback/ QA l What would you like available through XML.org? l What would you like to submit to XML.org?
