Sorry for getting caught up in the content, and missing the form! Can't we allow markets to specify the attributes needed to support them? <answer> Yes, type of market provides requirements that lead to the definition of attributes. Do we have to have foreknowledge of the types of markets? <answer> No, although any new type of market MAY introduce a requirement for a new attribute (see answer to first question) John -----Original Message----- From: Murray Maloney [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, October 19, 2000 1:03 PM To: John Yunker Cc: ebxml Archtecture Subject: RE: FW: Parties and Partners At 12:31 PM 10/19/00 -0700, John Yunker wrote: ><Murray Maloney> Can't we allow markets to specify the attributes needed to >support them? >That is, do we have to have foreknowledge of the types of markets? </Murray >Maloney> > >Exactly!

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.
