15:17:05 [Luc]
q?
15:17:11 [CraigTrim]
hook: for avoiding JAXB element issue - we were thinking that this may be a JAXB dependent only type of issue - it really does raise the issue that JAXB does this due to ambiguity in marshalling and unmarshalling. That ambiguity is in minOccurs=0 and nullable types. The fact that those two can not occur together. How do you represent with element is missing vs element is nullable. How do we distinguish between those cases?
15:17:24 [CraigTrim]
hook: One of the questions that this does raise is how dependent do we want to be on JAXB?
15:17:42 [pgroth]
q+
15:17:58 [CraigTrim]
hook: JAXB is probably one of the more mature XML binding tools out there - used quite a lot by industry (Web Services, JEE Frameworks) ... there is probably an ideal case where we want to be independent of implementations
15:18:02 [CraigTrim]
hook: but we can't ignore JAXB
15:18:10 [Luc]
ack pg
15:18:25 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: What is the suggestion? And what are the ramifications?
15:18:55 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: reason for PROV-XML was to make it easy for people who work with XML to adopt PROV ... otherwise we would have just used RDF/XML, but that's not nice for XML developers
15:19:16 [CraigTrim]
hook: JAXB has a customization capability so we could customize binding
15:19:40 [CraigTrim]
hook: this would allow us to instruct JAXB to not generate JAXB element; however this creates ambiguity in round trip marshalling
15:20:22 [CraigTrim]
hook: customization is purely JAXB - we provide a customization XML file
15:20:37 [CraigTrim]
hook: We won't need to touch the PROV-XML schema at all
15:20:50 [CraigTrim]
hook: alternative is to move xs:any out
15:21:06 [CraigTrim]
hook: that could be a good compromise - since it would not require ambiguity or customization of binding
15:21:18 [CraigTrim]
hook: but difficult to get cutomization to work properly
15:22:04 [CraigTrim]
Luc: given your timetable indicates a draft for review on the 28th (next week), I think it would be nice to have a resolution before you release the new draft so that we review a (near) final version of the PROV-XML documents
15:22:23 [CraigTrim]
Luc: would it be possible for the editors to have a proposal on Monday and a decision by Tuesday?
15:22:26 [CraigTrim]
hook: yes, sounds reasonable
15:22:29 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: yes, agreed
15:22:59 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: PROV-XML is a series of trade offs
15:23:01 [Luc]
q?
15:23:19 [CraigTrim]
hook: one particular trade off is it acceptable to have a lossy round-trip marshalling in exchange for ease of use?
15:23:27 [CraigTrim]
hook: we need to consider this
15:23:35 [CraigTrim]
Luc: what is it that you would lose?
15:23:43 [CraigTrim]
Luc: could you give an example?
15:24:06 [CraigTrim]
hook: If you have an element that is in two states (declared - but value nil) and (not declared)
15:24:20 [CraigTrim]
hook: when we unmarshall out into data structured, one of those two states will collapse into a more generic state
15:24:34 [CraigTrim]
hook: when we marshall back we can't tell which of the original states
15:24:50 [CraigTrim]
hook: this is rationale of why JAXB element is inserted into here to capture these two states properly
15:25:16 [CraigTrim]
Luc: what element in the schema can be null?
15:25:28 [CraigTrim]
Luc: it's none of the PROV constructs, right?
15:25:43 [CraigTrim]
hook: right - nowhere in PROV-XML XSDs to we declare nullable type = true
15:25:56 [CraigTrim]
hook: so we should verify the occurence of the nullable
15:26:18 [Luc]
q?
15:26:21 [CraigTrim]
hook: we will verify this before Monday and reach a conclusion
15:26:41 [CraigTrim]
Luc: Outcome is by Monday we will receive a proposal on what the editors recommend on this
15:26:44 [TomDN]
Zakim, unmute me

http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/wiki/Meetings:Telecon2013.03.21#PROV-DICTIONARY
15:27:53 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: we may want to defer voting due to low attendance
15:28:31 [CraigTrim]
Luc: documents are being released next week, so good to have resolutions ahead of that
15:28:51 [CraigTrim]
Luc: I would recommend an email to put your proposals forward and if no negative response by Tuesday assume endorsed
15:28:52 [pgroth]
q+
15:29:12 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: Yes, just to clarify - that means Tom puts out what he thinks it correct on each item and ask for objections

15:29:27 [zednik]
zednik has joined #prov
15:29:48 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: I will put the email out - most issues are editorials and TODOs - the two biggest ones are examples of data collection
15:29:58 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: there is slight change in XML requested about IDs and attributes
15:30:16 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: only one issue that we don't have a proposal for - that is the first one on agenda - 638 - was raised by James
15:30:31 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: this is something that we don't know how to solve conclusively
15:30:38 [pgroth]
q+
15:30:47 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: so I will send an email out asking for suggestions on how to fix
15:30:57 [CraigTrim]
Luc: James could make a suggestion
15:31:04 [Luc]
q?
15:31:10 [Luc]
ack pg
15:31:28 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: if anyone has any issues we could talk about that briefly
15:31:49 [pgroth]
james should probably make a suggestion
15:32:30 [CraigTrim]
Luc: whenever there is an equality sign between two sets of key value pairs it denotes equality over those esets?
15:32:34 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: yes
15:32:58 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: the issue is that the notation deviates from constraints of data model so we need suitable resolution for that
15:33:09 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: will send out email and ask for more suggestions
15:33:14 [Luc]
q?
15:33:35 [CraigTrim]
Luc: regarding issue 650 - I believe Stephan is updating XML schema
15:33:38 [TomDN]
http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/650
15:34:07 [CraigTrim]
Luc: that would make xml schema aligned with the prov notation and ontology
15:34:27 [TomDN]
http://www.w3.org/2011/prov/track/issues/647
15:34:43 [CraigTrim]
Luc: second comment is regarding issue 647; would it be the case that ... the key value pair becomes an entity
15:34:55 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: no - I don't think that would be the case
15:35:10 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: we are talking about making propery prov pair value (which used to be prov value) just a sub property of prov entity
15:35:26 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: just to say arguments of prov value have to be an entity as well
15:36:47 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: prov key value pair is described .. only thing we change is ...
15:36:53 [CraigTrim]
Luc: what is the domain of prov entity?
15:37:19 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: one of the implications is that key/value pair is an entity influence
15:37:36 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: that could be an objection - we weren't sure what the implications would be
15:38:04 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: implications for domain might be wider
15:38:26 [CraigTrim]
TomDN: could you formulate that objection in an email response to the issue?
15:38:41 [CraigTrim]
Luc: if you could raise it as a question to the team
15:39:00 [Luc]
q?
15:39:08 [CraigTrim]

15:47:59 [CraigTrim]
Luc: there were 3 points
15:48:13 [CraigTrim]
Luc: derivation, constraints, invalidation
15:48:32 [CraigTrim]
Luc: first point: they adopted a property chain
15:48:35 [CraigTrim]
Luc: which is fine
15:48:48 [CraigTrim]
Luc: not entirely clear - does this property chain - where does it show? in the ontology?
15:49:15 [CraigTrim]
jun: claimed implementation in Ontology
15:49:33 [CraigTrim]
Luc: only comment was on that specific point,but haven't had time dig into fine detail
15:50:13 [CraigTrim]
Luc: 2nd point - they refer to constraints document
15:50:47 [CraigTrim]
3rd point - invalidation - up to users to decide
15:50:54 [CraigTrim]
Luc: they made no changes there
15:51:20 [CraigTrim]
Luc: was this editorial changes, or more (which would imply going through last call again)
15:51:39 [CraigTrim]
pgroth: was a last call working draft
15:51:44 [stain]
Sorry I cut in here - I can't be in the meeting (I've instead presented PROV with great reception) - I've started work on a blog post about PAQ - with code sample at https://github.com/stain/paq
