+1 :o) 

	I also would like to know the inconsistencies and if possible
influence the BTP "to do the right thing" if they are not doing the
right things.

	The reason is that the BTP group has very knowledgeable folks in
the transaction area and it would be good for us to leverage their
collective wisdom and experience.

	Just as an extension, one of our goals is this leverage with
other groups and influence them as well.

Your thoughts Edwin ?

cheers

 | Mark,
 | 
 | Can you outline in what (or some :-) ways BTP is 
 | "inconsistent with Web
 | architecture", and what it would mean to be "Web 
 | architecture friendly" ?
 | 
 | BTP has always been designed to be, and in our view would, 
 | fit in with any
 | plausible Web service architecture (though not restricted to WS)
 | 
 | I'm editting the spec - but the current spec is targetted on 
 | implementation
 | and does not include the full overview and model, which will be more
 | digestible. The TC plan a complete review draft, and an 
 | accompanying primer
 | for 1 April.
 | 
 | In the mean time, a 5-page paper on BTP from Choreology 
 | (presented at HPTS
 | in October) is at http://www.choreology.com/~btp.
