Hi Ashok,

 

Thank you for starting this thread. (Apologize, if the colors don't
survive the mail server.)

 

I marked up few bits that are redundant (Yellow) and few bits that don't
add any additional info (Grey) to Introduction. I suggested few minor
changes (Green). And the net is,

 

"The Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework [Web Services Policy Framework]
specification defines an abstract model and an XML-based language for
expressing policies. This specification, Web Services Policy 1.5 -
Attachment, defines two general-purpose mechanisms for associating
policies with the subjects to which they apply; the policies may be
defined as part of existing metadata about the subject or the policies
may be defined independently and associated through an external binding
to the subject.

 

To enable Web Services Policy to be used with existing Web service
technologies, this specification describes the use of these general
purpose mechanisms with WSDL [WSDL 1.1, WSDL 2.0 Core Language]
definitions and UDDI [UDDI API 2.0, UDDI Data Structure 2.0, UDDI 3.0]."

Suggested rewording of Introduction section of Policy Attachment
document is as below:

 


1. Introduction


The Web Services Policy 1.5 - Framework [Web Services Policy Framework
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#WS-Policy> ]
specification defines an abstract model and an XML-based language for
expressing policies. This specification, Web Services Policy 1.5 -
Attachment, defines two general-purpose mechanisms for associating
policies with the subjects to which they apply; the policies may be
defined as part of existing metadata about the subject or the policies
may be defined independently and associated through an external binding
to the subject. 

To enable Web Services Policy to be used with existing Web service
technologies, this specification also describes the use of these general
purpose mechanisms for attaching policies to with WSDL [WSDL 1.1
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#WSDL11> , WSDL
2.0 Core Language
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#WSDL20> ]
definitions and UDDI [UDDI API 2.0
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#UDDIAPI20> , UDDI
Data Structure 2.0
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#UDDIDataStructure
20> , UDDI 3.0
<file:///c:\Policy\WS-Policy\ws-policy-attachment.html#UDDI30> ]. 

Specifically, this specification defines the following: 

*         Two general-purpose mechanisms for associating policies with
policy subjects: either directly as an attribute on the subject
definition or indirectly using an attachment mechanism.

*         How to associate policies with WSDL definitions.

*         How to associate policies with UDDI entities.

Note also that WS-Addressing
[http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-ws-addr-core-20060509/] also provides a
mechanism for including metadata information, including policy, as part
of an Endpoint Reference.  This mechanism will not be discussed further
in this specification.

All the best, Ashok
