Subject: Re: What do people really expect from ebXML? - the Vision "thing"
Since William is fairly free in quoting me, I would like to clarify my comments a bit. I *do* believe that the best chance for continuing the CC work of ebXML is in the joint EWG/X12 collaboration. I also believe that collaboration to be the best candidate, at present, for producing the standard messages that Mr. Lyons seeks. However, this is probably yet another issue of semantics, but I don't see that work effort as a *direct* successor to ebXML. Also, the ebXML sponsors have still not announced their proposals what comes after Vienna. Given that, and attempting to be realistic about the ways of the world, I think it is unknown whether or not the environment after Vienna will be one in which the EWG/X12 collaboration will prosper. I am hopeful in that regard, but I'm going to wait and see. "William J.
