Subject: Re: What do people really expect from ebXML? - Core components..
All, We really need some XML specifications for the core components of ebXML, as we have products that we really want to ship later in the year. It appears as though there are some difficulties in defining the core components, although I note there have been some good efforts in the directory area and so forth. If ebXML needs to produce documentation quickly, then I would suggest concentrating on the most important things as far as eb is concerned. In my opinion, there are four documents that need to be designed, or adapted from existing patterns. They are: (1) The Purchase Order (2) The Invoice / Receipt / ASN (3) The Payment Advice (4) The Statement of Account With documentation that describes these four documents, a lot of pressure on ebXML could be dissapated. I've seen that we have quite a few people here who are sufficiently skilled to make a start on these components. Also, Edifact/X12 could quite easily be stripped to produce a relatively simple subset. It doesn't need to do everything, only the basic stuff. Forgive my optimism, but we have Customers who really want to bash some of these messages around. It's costing me money every day that ebXML is not going, so if called upon, I'd certainly be willing to help. Take care all David Lyon
