CMDBf 1.0 specification released

The CMDBf committee has just released version 1.0 of the specification. Van Wiles has an overview of the changes between 0.95 and 1.0. I left HP soon after 0.95 was released and that’s when my participation in CMDBf ended, so Van’s summary is very useful to me. The changes he lists are not surprising and some of them already existed in draft form before 0.95 publication. I need to spend some intimate time with the specification to review the changes to the template mechanism in more details. Some of the changes have the potential to make the specification quite a bit harder to implement. This is especially the case for the introduction of “depthLimit” (but it’s probably a needed feature anyway). And the fact that relationships can now match item selectors will make things either easier or harder to implement, depending on your implementation choice (e.g. straight-to-SQL/XML or through an OO or RDF model). Congrats to the group. We should soon hear about submission for standardization.
