[len] Thanks for engaging, Joe.
Let's play our game.
[JMC] Although the term
"standardization" is broad, we will be standardizing exchange packages in that
they will be represented according to the DRM metamodel. Not sure what you mean
by "reference packages" and the "reference level" - is this synonymous with
[len] I mean
Information Exchange Packages (IEPs) that can be Reference packages for direct
use or customization by States and Local agencies.
[len] IEPs are directly
citable. Citing the FEA DRM or the GJXDM at in a procurement is less
than effective. We will comply
with GJXDM by citing IEPs developed by the customer of
by collaboration with the customer that comply themselves
with GJXDM. According to the presentation
by Feagans/Daconta (June 10, 2005) given to the GJXDM Users Conference,
of IEPs is step 5.1 of the project
Where does FEA DRM
[len] Exchanges of decision making
information are classified in a continuum from real time information (C2) such
uses for requesting and deploying assets in response to an incident
(think Dispatch to Dispatch) to the exchanges of administrative information
such as are used for financial exercises or resource planning (think NIBRS
or UCR). None of that is 'synonymous
Federal'. The States and local agencies
are responsible for the development, procurement and fielding
IEP-based systems. In other words,
regardless of the architecture, be it SOA or file-to-directory
systems, the overwhelming majority of systems being
procured today operate at the level of report
That is the sweet spot.
Please provide a roll-out
scenario for FEA DRM that would be significant in a procurement.
What does FEA DRM
mean to SOA if the SOA relationships are largely report exchange?
Characterizing that as 'message exhange' puts
implementation ahead of specification.
[JMC] Would be happy to hear more
about these technical reasons, and why RDF is a non-starter (note that we only
use rdf:id in the DRM XML Schema).
[len] Show the support for RDF in the
major commercial software frameworks. Why do I need
that? Why does
a State agency need that? Why does a local agency
