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! William J. Kammerer FORESIGHT Corp. 4950 Blazer Pkwy.
