Subject: Re: " Information "
Mario, I am the project team leader for the ebXML Core Components group. Several announcements have been made by the ebXML chairperson Klaus Naujok on this subject, but it is such an important topic that the message bears repeating. In ebXML, the approach we are taking is to use what we can from past work, but the vast majority of past work is reference. We are not taking any bulk content from either the X12 or EDIFACT dictionaries. We are going to great lengths in the Core Components Project Team, to define what we are calling "Smart Core Components", which represent the next evolutionary step in the ability to define interoperable messages. Over the next few months, you will see the exciting breakthrough this work represents be refined and demonstrated. Half of the 60 active participants in the project team have a strong EDI background, and we are fortunate to have as many visionaries collaborating on this important initiative. In addition to having copied Klaus on this message, I have included Melanie McCarthy, the chair of the X12 Steering committee XML task group, both of whom can answer additional questions on official X12 and EDIFACT positions on XML. Best regards, Lisa M. Shreve X12 has taken no official position on converting X12 dictionaries, and is not endorsing any vendor approach.
