[Smwg] Approaches for Implementing the SM Info Entity "Stereotype" in XML Schema

CSSMWG colleagues ---
As you know, over the past few weeks there has been discussion on various aspects
of the "standard header" for the SM Information Entities. In particular, the standard header is really more like a standard stereotype: three abstract classes (SvcMgtInfoEntity, SvcMgtHeader, and SvcMgtData) in a defined interrelationship that is inherited by every SM Information Entity that we will define.

Over the past few days, I started looking into how this stereotype relationship might be represented in the XML schemas for those Info Entities. I explored two possible approaches (there may be more) and put together a set of slides that I had hoped to be able to present at today's telecon, but we ran out of time. Selection of one of these approaches (or some alternative) will govern how the XML schemas for our Info Entity schemas will be developed.

I've posted the presentation in the CWE > Cross Support Services Area (CSS)<http://cwe.ccsds.org/css> > Documents<http://cwe.ccsds.org/css/docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?View=%7B8045374D%2DF8E0%2D4356%2D83CA%2D993252A38FE8%7D&> > CSS-SM<http://cwe.ccsds.org/css/docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2Fcss%2Fdocs%2FCSS%2DSM&View=%7B8045374D%2DF8E0%2D4356%2D83CA%2D993252A38FE8%7D&> > CWE Private<http://cwe.ccsds.org/css/docs/Forms/AllItems.aspx?RootFolder=%2Fcss%2Fdocs%2FCSS%2DSM%2FCWE%20Private&View=%7B8045374D%2DF8E0%2D4356%2D83CA%2D993252A38FE8%7D&> > Draft Schemas  folder at URL

I hope that we can discuss these approaches at a telecon in the near future. In the meantime, please feel free to look at the briefing and offer comments and criticisms.

Best regards,
