WS-CDL

Hello,

I have been reading the primer and overview for
ws-cdl, and some of the resources on Pi4 Foundation
and Hattrick and I have a question.

Say I represent the international bunny rabbit
breeders association.

Members of the association want to sell bunny rabbits
via post and to do requires the use of a shipping
company that can prove it is authorised to ship live
animals. The purchaser must also prove that they are
on their state's list of permit holders for the
breeding of bunny rabbits.

International bunny breeding is a cut-throat business.
(Unfortunate choice of words).

To help our members be as efficient as possible, we,
as a trade association, develop a ws-cdl script to
choreograph all the various exchanges of quotes,
permits, monies, shipping data etc.

We publish the ws-cdl on our association web site so
that all persons in the international bunny breeding
business can access it.

Here is my question.

Now what happens?

At one extreme, do bunny breeders feed a copy of the
script into a black box and it produces a business
application?

At the other, is the script nothing more than a
concise equivalent of a prose description that a bunny
breeder's development team can use as a spec?

I'm not an eclipse user, but the implementations
listed on the site are all related to eclipse.

Should I interpret that as meaning that a ws-cdl
script is intended to be used as some kind of
validation tool within a web-services IDE?

Maybe ws-cdl can be used in all these different ways.

I apologise if these questions seem somewhat basic but
clearly ws-cdl is meant as input to some kind of
software, and that software produces some kind of
output.

I'd be grateful for help understanding what the output
is intended to be.

Thanks,

John Smith
