back to the existential question:  what does this subteam think it is doing, or supposed to be doing?

  • continued discussion about finding the balance between code and interfaces
  • code fills gaps, interfaces define the gaps to be filled
  • the "suite" wants code, and decisions about this code vs that code
  • the "ecosystem" wants interfaces, and architecture

consensus regarding id-match as the first example component to define interfaces and component functionality

  • is id-match component "inside" the Person Registry?
    where "inside" could mean:  inseparable from PR, or only called by PR
    one UC campus has a model where id-match is called by source systems, so need to support that
    OpenRegistry has Java interface, but id-match is "inside" today

how do we do interface specification? 

  • language-specific is to be avoided
  • Kuali has used SOA (XML/SOAP) service contracts
  • RESTful is popular these days.  yes, everyone likes RESTful, so let's do that

the HR interface

  • UC overall is driven by common Oracle HR across campuses
    Rutgers has Oracle HR too, interested in common interface
      but at Rutgers person data flows via Data Warehouse


  • in Phoenix Jan 5-6 2012
  • please indicate interest in attendance (if you haven't been tapped already)

public communication

  • some concern about whether we have enough to say, but on reflection maybe we do
  • add bullets to wiki page, maybe wind up next week
  • No labels
