PWG-ANNOUNCE> Last Call for the Imaging Services Counter Spec and MIB

Last call for the Imaging Services Counter MIB and the Imaging Services Counter Standard  (Counter Spec) was initiated on 29 March and included the Tokyo face-to-face meeting.  We expect that all those intending comments have submitted them. The WIMS working group is considering the resolution of issues raised with respect to these two documents. At some time, the modified documents with identification of issues resolution will be posted and presented at a plenary meeting. Because of the very few scheduled face-to-faces meetings this year, this may be a called phone conference plenary.

Thank you for your interest and your comments.

Bill Wagner, Chairman WIMS Working Group

Just a reminder (since we sometimes forget to explicitly mention this at F2F meetings),
that PWG members are encouraged to submit letters of assurance for intellectual
property that is relevant  to a candidate-standard (referred to as proposed standard in the legal section of
of the PWG process document).

As the Standard for Imaging Systems Counters approaches the Formal Approval process please keep this in mind.

PWG-ANNOUNCE> PWG-DMTF alliance for updating CIM/CORE for Printer management

For several weeks, we have been discussing with the DMTF the possibility of an alliance for the purpose of re-aligning Printer MIBv2 and portions of the PWG Semantic Model with the DMTF CIM/CORE model for device management. Recently, the DMTF Board of Directors have extended a formal invitation to the PWG to engage in this alliance. The work effort is outlined in this DMTF "work register".
ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/related/dmtf/PWG-DMTFWorkRegister.htm

The PWG Steering Committee intends to authorize a formal reply of acceptance to the DMTF following our PWG Steering Committee phone conference Thursday, May 12. A joint press release will follow.

I invite you to express you to participate in this semantic alignment and modeling effort which will take place as part of the WIMS working group.

PWG-ANNOUNCE> WSDL 2.0 new working drafts (10 May 2005)

Hi,

The W3C Web Services Description Working Group has published new WSDL/2.0
drafts:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-wsdl20-primer-20050510
- WSDL/2.0 Part0: Primer - Informative - first public working draft

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-wsdl20-20050510
- WSDL/2.0 Part1: Core Language - Normative - main WSDL/2.0 spec

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-wsdl20-adjuncts-20050510
- WSDL/2.0 Part2: Adjuncts - Normative - predefined extensions

And the very interesting:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-wsdl20-soap11-binding-20050510
- WSDL/2.0 SOAP/1.1 Binding - Informative - for migration use

This last document says that it is intended to progress eventually
to a 'W3C Working Group Note'.  Quoting from the Introduction:

"This binding is intended to ease the migration from WSDL 1.1 to 
WSDL 2.0 for implementers describing services that use SOAP 1.1 
protocol.  And, this binding allows users to continue using SOAP 1.1 
protocol."

Although this SOAP/1.1 binding _cannot_ be normatively referenced 
(even in the final W3C WG Note form), it may be useful for PSI, WIMS,
and other projects.  Other printing standards organizations should
review these new WSDL/2.0 drafts and consider using _informative_
references to this SOAP/1.1 binding draft for migration purposes.

Cheers,
- Ira (co-editor of PSI/1.0 and WIMS/1.0)

PWG-ANNOUNCE> Re-publish of PWG 5101.1-2002 to correct invalid link and formatting errors.


FYI,

The PWG 5101.1-2002 Standard for Media Standardized Names candidate standard document has
 been republished to correct the following errors:

1. Incorrect URL (both because the file didn't exist and it was in the wrong location) for the ABNF file
for media naming conventions. The link has been corrected and a file has been created at that location.

2. Incorrect table numbering throughout. (result of original re-publish)

3. Incorrect header information on pages 2-20. (result of original re-publish)

4. Incorrect dimensions (in a table heading, was mm and all table entries were inches)

5. Outdated contact info for one of the authors.

Here's a link if you need to update your copy of the candidate standard document.
