Summary of TAG activity from 9 June to 2 July 2002

Dear www-tag,

This is a summary of the TAG's activity from 9 Jun 2002
(date of the previous summary [1]) to 2 July 2002.

The TAG had four teleconferences during this period; summaries of
those meetings are linked from the TAG home page [2].

During the current period, the TAG has primarily:

1) Published the following:

    - "URIs, Addressability, and the use of HTTP GET":


    An important principle of Web architecture is that all
    important resources be identifiable by URI. This finding
    discusses the importance of using GET for safe operations on
    the Web, so that those resources may be identified by a
    URI. The finding also discusses some practical limitations to
    this general principle.

    The TAG and XMLP Working Group worked closely on questions of
    the use of GET in SOAP 1.2. Discussions between the TAG and the
    Web Services Activity are continuing on other interoperability
    questions. The TAG appreciates the efforts of all involved in
    these discussions.

2) Discussed the following draft findings:

    - Qnames as Identifiers (issue qnameAsId-18)

    - Consistency of Formatting Property Names, Values, and

3) Accepted the following new issues:

    - charmodReview-17 : Request to review "Character Model for the

    The TAG requested review on www-tag of an early draft of the
    Architecture Document. This draft represents substantial input
    from TAG participants, but does not yet represent consensus.
