Could you let me know which parts of the listserv are referring to UML and such. If by "use and intent" you mean something like Usage (Use Cases, Scenarios, ...) as a means to at least show how to use those components I would fully agree with you. I would support that we shouldn't try to treat "Use Cases" as a formal modeling technique, but I would imagine that they would be a great help (examples) for people who would try to go along the ebXML path after the guidelines, ... are done. > My understanding is that we will have on-going work around the official > ebXML modelling language.

Thoughts? > I am not sure that we have too much time to evaluate this. As far as I know, there are already few ebXML groups that have been using UML. If there are better modeling languages we should use them, but we need to justify such decision. And modeling language is just a language; it doesn't cover process, tools, ... I hope we can be consistent across the board regarding issues like this. Thanks Nikola Stojanovic ebXML-Architecture member
