I would like to start a conversation on the list re: the agent architecture, as
proposed in the Federated Enterprise Reference Architecture approach.
Thanks to Goran, Vasco and the ebXMLsoft team for creating the presentation
attached, and to David Webber and Dan Pattyn for pointing me to the BCM material.
I think that there are several inputs that we can include to round out the ideas
of a non-intrusive, event-driven agent model. Opinions are requested from the
group on these, and preferences for how to specify the agent mechanisms using a
combination of the approaches here:
- The Agent Framework is described in the attached BCM / FERA presentation.
There is a lot of good material here, however, we need to make sure that we are
re-using stable OASIS specs where possible. I would like to map the
specifications mentioned in the presentation to the existing specs.
- The BCM Linking and Switching as a mechanism to bind to the agent framework
