   RE: [xml-dev] Maturing Businesses and Web Standards

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

"The developers envision that the FEA DRM will be used in conjunction with
the Global Justice XML Data Model and the National Information Exchange
Model. One of the NIEM Program Goals is to leverage shared technology
through implementation of the FEA Data Reference Model (DRM)."


How would this work in practice?  From the bottom, GJXML is a rather 
large and somewhat obtuse description of data being exchanged by 
justice agencies.  The description of the data collected might be 
different, but GJXML is suitable as the basis for exchange on the 
wire.  As I understand NIEMs, the actual contract deliverable is 
an Information Exchange Package (IEP) and this is what the service 
actually serves up.  The products of the public safety vendor for say 
a records management system are to work with the customer agency to 
define, declare and serve the IEPs as derived from GJXML plus any 
local entities/fields/reports as may be needed.

Where does the FEA DRM fit into that process?  What deliverables 
are created by applying it?

The world is festering with meta-specs.  These become cost items. 
FEA DRM can be a cost-saver or a cost-maker.   Unless we understand 
this going in and work smartly, costs rise.  That is doubtless, not 
the intent.
