Subject: Re: Jon Bosak's suggestion that xCBL be adopted as the ebXMLBusinessDocument framework

Martin Bryan wrote to remind us "that one of the requirements that ebXML
is supposed to address is the interworking between existing EDIFACT
systems and those based on ebXML. Can anyone suggest how this would be
possible if xCBL was used as the base?"

Dear Martin:

A translator could be used, maybe?

The only way you could have transparent compatibility between UN/EDIFACT
and ebXML would be if the latter were based on a mechanical wrapper
scheme, such as DIN 16557-5 [Rules for generation of XML schema files
(XSD) on the basis of EDI(FACT) implementation Guidelines], the former
XML Solution's XEDI, or X12's various incarnations of wrappers.

But, hey! Don't get discouraged: you can transport EDI files (both X12
and UN/EDIFACT) as payloads using the TR&P Messaging Services!
