30-day Public Review for XML Testing and Event-driven Monitoring of Processes (XTemp) Version 1.0

The OASIS Testing and Monitoring Internet Exchanges (TaMIE) TC [1] members have recently approved a Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification for 30-day public review:

XML Testing and Event-driven Monitoring of Processes (XTemp) Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 01 / Public Review Draft 01
03 October 2011

Specification Overview:
XTemp is an XML mark-up language that is event-centric and intended for the analysis of sequence of events that represent traces of business processes. It is designed for both log analysis and real-time execution. It leverages XPath and XSLT.

TC Description:
The objective of the TC is to assist and standardize the monitoring and testing of message-based transactions or of business process behaviors, by analyzing XML-formatted traces of these processes. The goal is to allow better portability of test or monitoring scripts, and broader availability of related scripting skills. The XTemp specification has learned from past XML-based test scripting (from ebXML IIC, KorBIT testbed, NIST and WS-I) and applies an event-centric paradigm to analyze traces of business processes or message exchanges. The resulting specification is leveraging XML processing (XPath, XSLT) in order to handle advanced event correlation and computations (logic, metrics). Details about XML leverage are explained in a paper: http://www.balisage.net/Proceedings/vol7/html/Durand01/BalisageVol7-Dura...

Public Review Period:

The public review starts Friday, 7 October 2011 and ends Monday, 7 November 2011.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
