API Review

Requirements Group Report [JK]

Architecture Group Report [DW]

  • Ted Bashor and Chuck Bridgham volunteered to update the architectural overview document.
  • XSL contribution under review; may need to create new component as a home for it.
  • M6 migration resulted in a variety of build problems; platform “ripple effect” was severe (see bug #90231).

XPDL Proposal [JK]

  • From JK email: OpenWide is planning to work on an XPDL editor that integrates with web tools and they would be interested in contributing to the project. Does the PMC consider XPDL to be a “de jure” standard? http://www.wfmc.org/standards/XPDL.htm
  • JK: We are not precise about which standards bodies we admit to WTP; need to clarify our position. Agreed to table this until next meeting (need quorum).

Action Items:

  • TW: finalize dates for release reviews with EMO
  • TW: provide LM with BEA conference information related to WTP

Tabled Items for Next WeekÂ’s Agenda

  • Refining list of standards bodies admissible for WTP use.
  • XPDL proposal.
  • Product-facing forum(s) for WTP 1.0 features (suggested by JK).
