Efficient Extensible Interchange Working Group Teleconference

21 Mar 2017

See also: IRC log




DB: I added an entry to EXI Deploypemt page.


DB: I also added some context, too.
... We have code base in the main page.

DP: We do not have platforms or applications that use EXI on public page.

<brutzman> Implementations are listed on EXI working group page, the next section would be for applications that support EXI

DP: I am not sure what we should do for those.

<brutzman> interestingly we might expect that an application list might be short at first, then hopefully really long over time!

DB: Application list may get long over time.

<brutzman> DP people might not tell us about their applications

DP: People do not usually tell that their application uses EXI.

<brutzman> we might add links there to notify us, and (DP) to join the group

DB: We have one application of X3D-edit.

DP: I know at least one database.
... Let's keep the list in EXI Deployment page, and have a link from the public list.

<brutzman> added a link to X3D-Edit and the Working Group page there

<brutzman> suggestions for EXI working group page https://www.w3.org/XML/Group/EXI/

<brutzman> - put (EXI) in title

<brutzman> - put link to public page near top

<brutzman> oops, just didn't see it at first: http://www.w3.org/XML/EXI

<brutzman> hmmm, maybe use numbers instead of bullets to show adoption?

<brutzman> hi Taki, are you with us?



<brutzman_> please see binary XML link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_XML

<brutzman_> see bullet "Efficient XML from AgileDelta, Inc., selected as the basis for the W3C Standard for Binary XML (EXI)"

<brutzman_> how about i flip that around to put EXI first, and ensure both are linked

Canonical EXI

<brutzman_> s/anyhoy/anyhow/

DP: OpenEXI results in an error. I reported to TK.
... OpenEXI outputs an empty schemaId.

<dape> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_data_serialization_formats

<dape> https://www.w3.org/TR/exi/#key-schemaIdOption

DP: Do we want to say anything about schemaId?

TK: We now allow both Header Options and schemaId absent.

DP: We need an additional configuration flag.

TK: I think so.
... I will send to the public list about the need for an additional flag controlling schemaId.

DP: It looks like omitOptionsDocument and header are conflicting.
... We can put a choice between omitOptionsDocument and header in Canonical EXI Options Document schema.
