Subject: Oooh - Ouch! Is it necessarily the Truth if it Hurts?
From the May 10, 2001 DAMSAD Project Group Status Report of the CEN/ISSS EC Workshop; see http://www.cenorm.be/isss/Workshop/ec/, select "Documentation," go to the EC Workshop Document Lists for 2001, and look at Document 41: ...our datatyping CWA has not had any influence on the development of ebXML, which insists on using a limited set of "representation types" based on existing EDI practices which are not formally defined, rather than adopting formal definitions of the type supplied in XML Schemas as recommended by the CWA... ...I had originally expected the ebXML initiative to provide a sufficiently understandable set of rules.... The poor quality of the ebXML core components deliverables, however, precludes its content from direct use in a CWA. The confusion as to how and when ebXML core component libraries will be created and managed, how these will differ from ebXML Business Libraries, and how users will access such libraries, makes it impossible to provide coherent guidance on the management of semantics related to ebXML, let alone advice of a more generic nature....
