1) First Cut Draft - Framework/Abstraction

The majority of the meeting was spent discussing the Binding Framework/Architecture. The group produced a diagram representation of the Binding Architecture. Noah created a pdf diagram of this architecture (version 1, version 2, version 3).

Highland and Henrik took the action to draft a description of this diagram by EOB Monday, August 6 (to be sent to dist-app - to be noted as a DRAFT).

2) Binding Instance - HTTP

Properties (sending side)

Message Role (request , response)

Transfer-Level URI

MEP - (request, response)(where and how to handle faults, etc)

Content Type - (text/xml,...)

HTTP Method (post, get, put)

Envelope (character encoding, char set)


HTTP Status Code (200, 500,...)

3) MEP Definition

The group ran out of time, but agreed that MEP Definition would have a framework of its own.

Next steps for TBTF
