I asked two questions and received an exclamation as reply. I was expecting an answer. My interface does not support this type mismatch. The 'right attributes' are the base set of attributes + any attributes that that market declares to be required for support within ebXML. I anticipate markets spontaneously appearing, specifying their 'type' and asserting their required attributes and interfaces. > >Market: a domain in which business transactions are executed >NetMarket: a Market where participants execute transactions according to the >rules of the administrator of that NetMarket >PartnerMarket: a Market where participants (Partners) execute transactions >according specific agreements between pairs of partners. Presumably, transactions are executed by participants in a market. Please understand that I do not want to prevent or disable partner markets. I just want to enable other types as well.
