Reminder: in order to become a member of the Web Services Component
Model TC at the first meeting you must notify the TC chair, Charles
Wiecha (email@example.com), of your intent to participate 15 days before
the first meeting. As the first meeting is scheduled for 7 January 2002
you must notify the chair by 23 December 2001.
Please note that subscribing to the TC mail list is not the same thing
as notifying the chair of your intent to participate; you must do both.

> The proposal for a new TC meets the requirements of the OASIS
> TC Process
> (see http://oasis-open.org/committees/process.shtml), and is
> appended to
> this message. The proposal, which includes a statement of
> purpose, list

> discussions, may occur no sooner than the TC's first meeting.
> To become a member of this new TC you must 1) be an employee
> of an OASIS
> member organization or an Individual member of OASIS; 2) notify the TC
> chair, Charles Wiecha (email@example.com), of your intent to

> PROPOSAL: OASIS WSCM TC
> The name of this Technical Committee shall be the OASIS Web Services
> Component Model (WSCM) TC.
> The aims of the WSCM TC shall be as follows:
> 1. Create an XML and web services centric component model for
> interactive web applications. The designs must achieve two main goals:
> enable businesses to distribute web applications through multiple
> revenue channels, and enable new services or applications to
> be created
> by leveraging existing applications across the Web.
> 2. To harmonize WSCM as far as practical with existing web application
> programming models (e.g. Portals, Macromedia Flash, etc.),
> with the work
> of the W3C (e.g.XForms, DOM, XML Events, XPath, XLink, XML
> Component API
> task force), emerging web services standards (e.g. SOAP, WSDL, WSFL),
> and with the work of other appropriate business information bodies.
> 3. Ensure that WSCM applications can be deployed on any tier on the
> network and remain target device and output markup neutral.
> 4. Ultimately, to promote WSCM to the status of an international
> standard for the conduct of XML and Web Services based web application
> development, deployment and management.
> The primary deliverable of the WSCM TC is a coordinated set of XML
> vocabularies and Web Services interfaces that will allow
> businesses to:
> 1) deliver web applications to end users through a diversity of
> deployment channels: directly to a browser or mobile device,
> through a portal, or by embedding into a 3rd party web
> application; and
> 2) Create web applications that can be easily be modified, adapted,
> aggregated, coordinated, synchronized or integrated by simple
> declarative means to ultimately leverage a worldwide pallet of web
> application components.
> As currently envisioned, the WSCM work will take place in five phases:
> 1. A first phase to gather requirements across web application
> deployment, development and management vendors.
> 2. A second phase to define a set of "base" web services
> interfaces that
> can be used to expose web application function and adaptation.
> 3. A third phase to define a "wiring mechanism" to
> declaratively specify
> web application semantics.
> 4. A fourth phase to define a set of web services interfaces
> that can be
> used to partition web applications into model, view and control (MVC).
> 5. A fifth phase to define a set of design patterns to guide WSCM
> developers in creating re-useable application components. In addition
> the TC will encourage implementations, test suites and
> If the work actually does take place in this form, then it is
> that the first, second and third phases will take roughly one year to
> complete and that the fourth and fifth phase will take
> roughly one year.
> If phases can be combined or run in parallel, then it is
> estimated that
> delivery of an initial set of specifications will take one to
> two years.
> The TC shall conduct its proceedings in English.
> The first meeting of the TC shall take place 7 January 2002 through 9
> January 2002 at facilities in Westchester County, New York, donated by
> IBM, or at an alternative location in the New York City area chosen to
> accommodate the number of participants who register to
> attend. The date
> and time of record for establishing initial voting membership
> under the
> OASIS TC process shall be 7 January 2002 at 2 p.m.
> The TC shall meet in person no more often than four times a
> year and by
> telephone at such other times as its members may determine.
> It is the intention of the sponsors of the TC to adopt a meeting
> schedule that will maximize contact between the persons engaged in the
> WSCM work, business experts engaged in the work of W3C, and persons
> engaged in the work of other organizations attempting to
> define XML and
> Web Services based web application standards
> Prospective participants in the WSCM TC should be ready to commit to a
> schedule calling for as many as two meetings annually in North America
> and as many as two meetings annually in Europe or Asia.
> TC PROPOSERS
> The following persons eligible to participate in OASIS technical
> committees state that they are committed to the meeting schedule and
