Subject: [Fwd: Example Scenarios Used Within the Aerospace Industry]

Isn't it true that ebXML messaging can be used to deliver traditional EDI
payloads as well. Probably there has to be ways of delivering that payload to
the EDI mapping engine like DI or GenTran but ebXML messaging could be used as
the transport correct?
I am new to ebXML so feel free to correct me.
I believe that changes from large EDI users to adapt ebXML will be slow but they
have to be made because there is a very good business case to do that. It opens
these large corporations up to potential partners that with traditional EDI just
were not able to come onboard because of the complexity and financing involved.
Return on such an investment may be in the very near future if looked upon in
this way.
I do believe that any ebXML platform HAS to provide an easy way to run side by
side with traditional EDI tools.
