Subject: Definition of business process


examples of business process:

1) Selecting trading partners
2) Purchase/Order/Shipping/Payment/etc...
3) Eating an elephant

I would argue that business process should be loosely coupled from the ebXML
framework. Perhaps I am misaligned from many of you on this point. The joke
on #3 was meant to illustrate that there may be processes in the future
which have not been accounted for, and thus cause an extinction in the
generic model.

One more metaphor--Shakespeare has been read for years, not because his
syntax or the language is timely (t'is rather awkward actually), but because
he loosely coupled his thoughts on life, the world and his "business
process" in a generic way, that simply never becomes outdated.
