Reminder of Semantic Model teleconference today in 45 minutes.
Topics include multifunction services and containment versus
reference for specific imaging jobs (ScanJob, PrintJob, etc.).
For context, Subunits and Resources (from WIMS project) are
referenced by Services (and optional Device objects) but are
contained in the top-level Server object (parallel to Services).
Please join us.

Subject: SM> Wed 31 May 1pm EDT - SM Teleconference

On Wednesday May 31 there will be a Semantic Model Teleconference . This
week we will focus on Job modeling in a multifunction device.  Anyone with
an opinion is invited to participate.  Anyone wishing to present send some
information should make it available to the mailing list and myself at least
a couple of days before the teleconference.  I will include it in an updated
agenda.  It does not have to be formal.  Any pictures that will help
illustrate your position would be helpful for the discussion.  

The latest straw man proposal for a PWG Semantic Model v2.0 Schema is
available at < HYPERLINK
""ftp://ftp>. Those of you who
will not have access to MyMeetings access should have the updated schema
available for the meeting.  I also posted a couple of schema diagrams
showing the representation of contained and referenced jobs from the
Semantic Model < HYPERLINK
//> and <
://>.   I
will post any additional material as it becomes available.

                3) Walk through the updated straw man schema < HYPERLINK
""ftp://ftp> Focusing on
Services and Jobs

                4) Discuss alternatives to Jobs schema structure
(containment versus reference) 
                4) Discuss Job classes (Common attributes of jobs, service
specific attributes, differences in the binding of jobs to instances such as
print versus scan)

                5) Discuss next steps and dates 


I have created an updated version of the SM schema. 
A local version (i.e. relative links to schema files stored in the same
directory) of the schema is available at 
""ftp://ftp>. I have included
an XMLSPY project file. 

What I have done since the last update is 
1) Added Ira's WIMS updates to the SM 
        a) WIMS Agents, Managers and Resources are added 
        b) Subunits, System and Devices added 
        c) Services are all renamed to clarify 
2) Made temporary edits to all schema so they are valid individually
(simplifies editing) 
3) Added PrintServicesZ under Services to contrast reference versus
containment of Jobs 
What I have not done is 
1) Updated the master list of elements 
2) Done anything to the SM specification
