hi all,

As promised, following the news from yesterdays meeting with our responsible
instructor at university.

These are the new main targets for our diploma thesis, all of them in
the context of using the existing Open.XKMS project from our spanish
colleagues:

WEB SERVICE:
There will be a web service refactoring containing following main parts:
- use of JAX-WS / JAX-B as web service framework, this will make the
source more readable and maintainable.
- finish up all functionalities that might not have been implemented
(e.g. PGP/SPKI, Pass Phrase Computation, etc.)
- implement the w3c provided testsuite
(http://www.w3.org/2001/XKMS/Drafts/test-suite/CR-XKMS-test-suite.html)
and do extensive service testing (including correction of all errors).
- create a proper and complete documentation of the web service
especially a refactoring-doc, a testing-doc and a webservice-doc.

CLIENT API:
- We're going to create a client api providing helper functions for
request message generation (signing, encrypting, etc.).
- create a proper and complete documentation of the client api.

CLIENT DEMO-APPLICATION (provided as own opensource project)
We will create a demo client application using the new client-api. The
client will show benefits of the use of XKMS web services, and be a
reference for later developers.
- again with documentation and stuff.


Gregorio:
What do you think about explained targets?
We on our side are going to do it like explained (with some
modifications/extensions if desired).
Do you wish that we're going to improve your current solution under
the existing sf-project Open.XKMS (e.g. as version 2) or would you
like us to do our own project ( of course we're gonna change the name
if so ;-) ).
I guarantee you that we will explicitly assign all reference to you in
all parts.

Another possibility could be that we do our stuff now in the context
of our university (internal) and provide you the solution in mid
november, so you'll be able to decide after a review if you want the
new version 2 to be added to your Open.XKMS project (or not).


That's about the size of it. We're sure it's gonna be great!

All comments welcome.

wish you all a nice day,
-Silvan
