Hi Jack,

We are discussing the possibility of adopting our IBM Semantic Matching
System to support part of SAWSDL spec. A few things came up.

As you might be aware, our system currently supports basic annotations on
WSDL inputs, outputs and XML schemas as per WSDL-S format for WSDL 1.1. If
we were to change the namespaces we have from 'wssem' to 'sawsdl'in our
system, would that count as an implementation enough for W3C? Would it
contribute to advance the spec from candidate recommendation to
recommendation? Please note that after we make the namespace change, the
following things will NOT be supported by our system.

   There will be no support for WSDL2.2
   For WSDL1.1, the following things will NOT be supported:
   There will be no support for SchemaMappings (support as in any API for
   parsing schema mappings)
   We only deal with a single modelReference on an element/attribute.
   Multiple modelReferences i.e., 'listOfAnyURI' in SAWSDL spec will not be
   Annotations on faults will not be supported.
   Annotations via modelReferences on operations (i.e., attrExtensions),
   interfaces, and faults will not be supported.
   Extraction of annotations on attributes has not been tested and cannot
   be guaranteed.

Annotations via modelReference on simpletypes, complex types (not all
possibilities discussed will be supported), and elements WILL be supported.
We can then do Web Service interface matching, mapping, discovery and
composition with or without annotations as you might recall from the demo I
have shown you.

Please let me know if with the above omissions, if our system with the
namespace changed  from 'wssem' to 'sawsdl' would still count toward an
implementation for the WG. We will decide things accordingly.

Thank you

Rama Akkiraju
