Hi all,

could I just add a few comments to Luigia's request. 

This activity is being performed in the context of the INSTINCT project (http://www.ist-instinct.org). INSTINCT is a research project dealing with the integration of telco and broadcast infrastructures. To this end we are studying the issue of specifying special terminal profiles, based on CC/PP and in particular based on UAProf, to address the peculiar features of the INSTINCT terminals. 

The question from Luigia is about which is the correct syntax and approach to use in order to extend an existing terminal profile specification (i.e., UAProf). Of course the right specification should then follow some formal standardization process, but this is not currently our goal.

I would really appreciate if someone could give us some hints on how to proceed.

 

Best regards and thanks a lot in advance,

Michele Re

Subject: How to Extend the UAProf Schema/Vocabulary

 

Dear all,

 

Could someone on this mailing list explain me the right method to extend the UAProf schema adding new identified attributes?

 

For example we let consider this case: we need to define a new schema that is identical to the UAProf schema apart the new attribute IntegratedVGACamera that must be added to the UAProf HardwarePlatform component.

So we have defined the new schema in the following way:

 

.........

1.	- <http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/profiles/UAPROF/ccppschema-20030226##>  <rdf:Description rdf:ID="IntegratedVGACamera">
2.	<rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">Description: Indicates whether the device supports integrated VGA camera. 
3.	Examples: "Yes", "No"
4.	</rdfs:comment> 
5.	<rdfs:label xml:lang="en"> IntegratedVGACamera </rdfs:label> 
6.	<rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#Property" /> 

 

7.	<rdfs:domain rdf:resource="http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/profiles/UAPROF/ccppschema-20030226#HardwarePlatform" /> 
8.	<rdfs:range rdf:resource="http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/profiles/UAPROF/xmlschema-20030226#Boolean" /> 
9.	<prf:ResolutionRule rdf:datatype="http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/profiles/UAPROF/xmlschema-20030226#ResolutionRule">Override</prf:ResolutionRule> 
10.	</rdf:Description>

.........

 

 

In the line number 7. we have a reference to the HardwareComponent of the UAProf schema. This is made for not redefine inside the new schema all the Component included the HardwarePlatform.

What do you think? Is this approach correct or we must redefine also all the existing UAProf Componet in our new schema ?

 

Thanks in advance for your help
