Subject: Re: Jon Bosak's suggestion that xCBL be adopted as the ebXML BusinessDocument framework
Arofan Gregory suspects "that many initial attempts [at automatic generation of schemas] will share the failings of attempts to automatically translate the EDIFACT and X12 standards into XML: they abandon many of the best features of the new syntax in order to accommodate the old." What's this I hear about the Germans trying to get their XML EDI wrapper solution on the fast-track to becoming an ISO standard? I have it on good sources - namely, some German guy - who alerted me to http://www.din.de/gremien/nas/nbue/nbue3/nbueaa3/aktuelles.html. A draft of the German proposal, DIN standard 16557-4, is available at http://forum.afnor.fr/afnor/WORK/AFNOR/GPN2/XMLEDI/PUBLIC/dr00.htm. If this EDIFACT wrapper technique becomes an ISO standard, is there pressure on us to use it for ebXML? William J. Kammerer FORESIGHT Corp. 4950 Blazer Pkwy.
