OSLC Core TC forms


This group will work to standardize the way software lifecycle tools share data, enabling products and network resources from different vendors, open source projects and homegrown components to interoperate successfully. First in the family of OSLC TCs to be launched, OSLC Core will apply principles from the W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP) to enable integration. Steve Speicher of IBM serves as the convener; the TC chair(s) will be elected at the first meeting, which will be held by teleconference on 12 Nov. All interested parties are invited to participate; contact join@oasis-open.org for details.

Congratulations to Emergency Management TC chair, Elysa Jones, and to all TC members for accomplishing this milestone.

Public reviews begin for
ebMS SAML for AS4 profile, XACML JSON profile, and SAF

The decision request and response structure is specified in the core eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML). The public review ends 14 Nov.

Symptoms Automation Framework (SAF) 1.0 is an architecture for enabling interoperable diagnosis and treatment of complex systems. The architecture is implementation agnostic yet it supports both stateful or real-time processing and postmortem diagnostics. The public review ends 28 Dec.
