ebxml-bp message

Subject: Business process definition : questions

Destinaire : ebxml-bp@lists.ebxml.org

Bob haugen proposed:
"I wish the BP group would switch to something like "collaboration", and 
have proposed such a change."

This would be a very good idea bob. One part of the ebXML BPM is very close 
to the UML collaboration meta-model. The Role based approch is getting more 
and more popular (we have Partner Role in ebXML) and this is what UML 
collaboration is all about.
