I notice a reluctance in members of the StC on the topic of UDDI vs
ebXML...The proposal I made last week had little or no reaction - also from
the QR team...Is this a view you guys share?  If so we should start


REMINDER...This was my view.....

Dear All,

I have been studying the UDDI stuff and it appears to me that - apart from
politics - we could very well work out that there is no conflict between
UDDI and ebXML.
The UDDI stuff supports more the 'UDD' but not much the 'I', whereas
ebXML -let's be fair- mostly ignored the 'Discovery' part...until the SJ
meeting when we set up the TPAteam.
In fact we could say that we have concentrated in ebXML on the what Gartner
calls the "post-contract phase", whereas UDDI concentrates on the
'pre-contract phase'.  I know that many in ebXML are of the opinion that the
ideas of 'open-edi' should be part of the specs, but we have been able to
come up with a radical approach to the post-contract phase - we have not
come up with new stuff on the TP discovery part.
UDDI is here now, and it brings two important players that have been missing
from ebXML: Microsoft and Ariba.  I think this is an opportunity for all to
embrace the UDDI initiative (with all its marketing power) and to align it
with ebXML.  We can now involve Microsoft and Ariba to come up with one
comprehensive spec to cover both the pre- and post contract phase in B2B
eCommerce, making UDDI non-proprietary and enhancing ebXML with something
the world needs also.
Maybe we can welcome the UDDI people in the TPA team - maybe renaming it to
UDD Team - and work together in Tokyo.
