Dear Moby users and developers,
I am sorry to bother you with a topic that is not directly connected to
BioMoby - but I hope that it is relevant.
BioMoby defines its own, very interoperable, standard for the
BioMoby-native web services interface. But:
1) The BioMoby regitry also includes, at least theoretically now,
possibility to register other web services, and
2) The service implementation is up to the service providers - it is
hidden from the outside world, but the LSAE topic I am going to talk about
here, can help with the service implementation (I believe).
So, that was the rationale why to bother you...
Now, the LSAE (if you are still reading).
I have put together (with the De Novo Pharmaceutics) a revised
submission of an OMG spec for the LSAE (Life Sciences Analysis Engine).
With few additional features, it actually carves in stone what we already
have in myGrid (Soaplab).
This revised submission is due to be considered by OMG in August. But I
have put it together already now because I would like to have as many
comments as I can collect from various communities (BioMoby is a
significant one for me).
Therefore, if you have time to look into the spec and give me any
comments and suggestions, it would be marvelous.
Last but not least: The spec has two submitters - this cannot be
changed now. But any spec is considered stronger if it has other
organizations as "supporters". The role of a supporter is only that the
name of an institute/company is in the spec - it does not give it any
rights (e.g. to vote on the spec), but neither any responsibility. So if
you consider that your institute could appear as a supporter of this spec,
please let me know and I will be very glad to list it in the spec.
Now, where you can find it: the documents have been posted to the OMG
server today, so they will appear there later today, or on Monday:
Before they are available there, I have also put them here:
