Hi -

For some time now, The Open Group has been developing a formal
ontology for SOA. We made an early version available for comment by
W3C members in 2007, and invited you to make comments prior to formal 
Open Group review in 2008. That review took place last year. It did not 
result in approval of the ontology for publication as an Open Group 
standard, but determined that fundamental changes should be made. We 
have now made those changes, and invite you to comment on the resulting 
new draft.

The changes have been partly driven by the desire to use the ontology as 
a basis for product implementations, and products that implement the 
emerging S-RAMP standard are using it - see http://s-ramp.org/faq.html

This draft is smaller than the previous review draft. It does not cover 
nearly so many concepts, but the OWL constructs for the concepts that it 
does cover are partly based on implementation experience, not just on 
the ways that the words concerned are used in human communication.

The draft is available for review at 
https://www.opengroup.org/projects/soa-ontology/review/ To participate 
in the review, you must subscribe to mail list 
soa-ontology-info@opengroup.org. You can do this via 
  You will then be able to log in to the review page, and enter comments 

We will address comments received at this stage before creating the 
draft for further Open Group review, which we hope this time will lead 
to publication of a standard. We would very much appreciate your input.
