Service Descriptions supporting material
  • Comments to be resolved
    • SWIM-SERV-240 Service interfaces - If the fully qualified network address is not provided for e.g. security reasons, what text should be used?
    • If you have ideas please send them to the group.
Conformance/compliance assessment report templates
  • Questions to be addressed:
    • How do I describe a service that uses GraphQL?
    • If you have ideas please send them to the group.
SWIM service ecosystem
Documenting the use of standardised implementations
  • The existing comments were reviewed and the pages will be updated accordingly.
  • Comments made during the meeting will be added to the pages.
  • The comments are of different natures:
    • ensuring proper documentation in a service description
    • ensuring harmonised design/implementation

Design/Implementation comments

High-level architecture

  • The group pointed out that AMQP, WFS, REST, etc. can be used by the same service. For example, an AMQP message may contain a link to data to be accessed over WFS. There may be a need to build some guidance on how to document these composite services (e.g. as different interfaces in the same service).
Service Categories - Using the Service Type
  • Service Concepts.pptx was used as a brief introduction to the service types category. It had been presented to the A3SG.
  • A meeting will be organised to continue the work.
  • There is a chance to benefit from the other groups doing similar work.
Service Portfolio and Service Categories - Service Type
  • Open request:
    • provide examples of the typical exchanges that can be mapped to a given category e.g. what falls under “Capacity, demand and flow information”.
    • Hopefully the work on service categories will help answer this.

Any other business

    • Integrating the new schema. Changes to the Registry will be presented at the next meeting so we can assess any impact on us.
