PMC Conference Call - October 25, 2005
Attending: Tim Wagner [TW], Arthur Ryman [AR], Raghunathan Srinivasan [RS], Carl Trieloff (Invited to speak on SOA / WTP overlap), Karl Reti (also on the STP PMC), Christophe Ney [CN], Jochen Krause [JK]

WTP / SOA Discussion [Carl Trieloff]

  • Carl provided a brief overview of the SOA project, its status, and the proposal scope.
  • Additional subprojects being added to incorporate more services, some of which are driven by others joining the project. Expect to start working in mid-November.
  • Some preliminary notes on surface area with WTP:
    • WSDL and XML Schema are used for contract design within STP; editing and validation would be used directly. Validation extensions are needed, and would work within the existing WTP validation framework (the extensions themselves would likely live in STP).
    • WSDL code generation; framework belongs in WTP, extensions depend on the genericity of their application.
    • WS-Security is within the scope of WTP, but currently unresourced. Other WS-* standards are similar. SOA network level security is not necessarily representative of WS-Security, and that modeling/tooling would reside in STP.
    • J2EE deployment is one deployment extension point for STP; this would exploit existing WTP extension points.
    • Extension to TCP/IP monitoring to provide SOAP message monitoring (WSDL-aware viewing of the traffic.)
    • Code generation framework - unclear on exactly how the breakdown would go, although Iona has some code they may be contributing in this area.
  • Should cross pollinate at the architecture group level (will connect with David).

Procedural

  • IP log begun; will need to spend time on this over the next two weeks to get ready for the 1.0 release view.
  • Speaking of which...we need to schedule the WTP 1.0 release review.
  • Need to follow up with John Graham on WTP/DTP migration plans for RDB APIs. Setting up call with Arthur and John to discuss this further.
  • WTP charter modifications accepted in last week's Board review; will post updated version to website and notify EMO.

Action Items

  • [TW, etc.] Continue work on IP log.
  • [TW] Release review the week of 11/14 scheduled.
  • [TW] Post new WTP Charter to Website and notify EMO.
  • [TW] Need release train planning document - push Planning Council to produce this (email sent; tracking status).
