Subject: RE: a new UID discussion
David, "import" is not the best choice of words here. I would be more inclined to say "wrap". With a mapping to the information model and a classification scheme, we could interact with the existing BSR with the common ebXML Registry client. That is to say, the BSR could be one of thousands of ebXML compliant registries, if it implements the interfaces and information model. So every entry in the BSR is a Managed Object of some form defined by a classification scheme. The same holds true with the existing UN/EDIFACT and X12 directories.

Of course Cefact has already some Know How in this Area, and with Solutions Like EDIFACT BSR we have already defined a huge base of codes/items. Greetings Bernd <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Bernd - the ebXML registry should be able to import and re-use existing BSR and other legacy EDI dictionaries. If you look at the GUIDE draft - http://www.xmlguide.org - you will see that the GUIDE element level and use if EDI igML is exactly designed to do this. Adding the XML methods there from this approach into what Core have too at this point is an obvious win. DW.
