Alan, Thanks for your kind comments. > Here's an example: go to Citibank's www.Bizzed.Com site. Click on > Networking. Can't you imagine an ebXML registry on that menu? Then, click > on Tools.

I can see where you are going, and the ASP model is just one way to go. ebXML needs to be this and much more. It needs to go places where fixed PCs and Internet connections are not. It needs to go onto mobile phones, navigation systems in cars and a whole lot of other places where people in SMEs actually do business. If ebXML is solely for the web, then it may never be adopted by people in Small Business for the simple reason that PCs are often a place where these people rarely (if ever) go. Saying this, the main point you made about managing inventory idea is essentially good, and so is the directory. I'm simply suggesting that ebXML needs to be the mechanism for how all these devices talk to each other. This functionality needs to be part of what we regard as core components. Take care David Lyon
