Hi Glen,

 

I like your choice of the name registry. I find myself continually getting
confused as to the actual tasks undertaken by some of the components that
live within the Cloud in our current model.

 

At least for me, the use of the word registry really helped with the
conceptual understanding.

 

Thanks.

 

Best Regards,

 

/Paul

Bill,

 

In fact, considering the functions of the Cloud Print System Service, the
Cloud Print System Service should be called the Cloud Print Registry.   This
is where the User, Print Services, Transforms, etc are registered.  It is
the place where User-to-'Print Service' association is done.   It is the
place where a lot of the security and access functionality is done (i.e User
login, access token, etc.).   Now in the model diagram, the arrow going to
the "cloud-boundary" now go the Cloud Print Registry. 

 

[ I believe using system service in the name here will be a big problem
later when we define an MFD and have the MFD system service.]

Bill,

 

Can the methods of the Cloud Print Provider be moved to the Cloud Print
System Service; thus, leaving the Cloud Print Provider as an environment
(basically, the collection of all Cloud Print entities in a specific cloud
implementation).

Bill,

 

Comment on Cloud Print Provider. 

 

In the current definition, the Cloud Print Provider is defined as an
environment but then it methods.   If the Cloud Print Provider provides
methods and can perform operations then it a software entity and not just an
environment.

Bill,

 

I was reviewing the definition of the Client and I believe the Client does
not provide the association function.  It must be a Cloud entity, such as
the Cloud Provider or the Cloud Print Provider (i.e. Google Cloud Print),
that creates and maintains the association between the User and one or more
Printers (Cloud Print Services).  The Client (acting as a proxy for the
User) may or may-not actually display the list of User Associated Printer
Service (i.e. the Client may be an embedded Client).

 

 

The Client is the software component that implements the interface between
the User and the Cloud Print Provider to create an Association; and to
enumerate available Cloud Print Services. The Client is also implements the
interface between the User and the selected Cloud Print Service to submit a
Print Job and to query Job and Printer Status. 

 

I would like to suggest the following 

 

The Client is the software proxy implementing an interface between the User
and the Cloud Print Provider for selection of a specific Cloud Print Service
from an enumeration list of User associated Cloud Print Services .  The
Client provides an interface for setting job elements which are communicated
with the specific Cloud Print Service.  The Client obtains and provided the
User with job queries and Printer status.

 

I would like to also suggest that we name "Client" as "Cloud Print Client"
since this is a specific type of generic Client that provides the interface
specifically between the User and the Cloud Print solution. 

 

Glen
