OASIS ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement TC
ebXML CPPA Technical Committee Teleconference
May 3, 2002
The agenda for the meeting was:
Motion for initial public review passed.
Initial public review announcements started.
Plans to attend face to face in Reston. Do we have a critical mass? Messaging has little interest in a co-located meeting in the June interval.
Reports from subteams. Negotiation report from Marty. Formation of webservice research (WSDL mainly) team with Arvola and Pallavi. Tony F. and Hima, is the Transaction capability representation (BTP) team underway? CPPA generalization efforts
other flow/choreography notations?
other messaging approaches?
Enhancements: SAML, standardized ways to point to agreed upon
credential sets, formats and encryption of credential sets,
policies concerning maintenance of credential sets.
Any other issues.
Dale made announcements, and added that he had no news from Karl
about OASIS and IBM IPR discussions. Jamie pointed out that these
discussions can be lengthy.
Dale polled the group to find out about probable attendance, and mode of attendance,
for the June face to face meeting in Reston.
David Smiley (presumably!)
are attending in person.
Arvola Chan is uncertain about in-person.
Attendance for portions or all of the meeting by phone:
Hima Mukkamala (probable)
Pete Wenzel (probable)
The rest of this 30 minute meeting was devoted to discussing subteams and
exchanging thoughts about priorities for future activities.
Arvola Chan and Pallavi Malu will lead the subteam on wsdl interaction research.
Dale will try to set up a mailing list for this work.
Tony Fletcher and Hima Mukkamala will lead the subteam on transaction capability
and agreement enhancements.
Dale will talk with Selim Aissi and Peter Ogden about investigating security agreement
Marty reported on the negotiation subteam, which had a good crowd this week.
Some progress was made in listing what was negotiable about each
element and attribute in the CPPA. Dale contributed an incomplete spreadsheet for documenting our initial views on the negotiable items, what was negotiable, and what ranges, if any, of values might be in the NDD. The PKI alignments made for draft CPAs was discussed, and an attempt was made to capture what negotiation options might exist for this. The dependency on rejecting PKI alignment upon boolean attributes in the BusinessProcessCharacteristics element was noted. How to capture this in a NDD was not resolved yet.
Dale reported on some of the issues being discussed in the WS Description WG in W3C.
Jamie pointed out that ebTWG groups had also been discussing related issues, and interested parties should read these archives.
Jamie also suggested that we might research how the ws-sec document might relate to
both CPP descriptions and CPA agreements for a light weight SOAP messaging option.
