Subject: [ebxml-dev] fwd:[POLL] ebXML Reg./Rep. on Apache?


We have submitted the following proposal (see below) for a new sub-project at 
Apache to complete a specification compliant implementation of the ebXMLRR based 
on a project that was initiated at Sun.

The code base for this proposal was developed by a team that is primarily 
working on the JavaTM API for XML Registries ('JAXR'). However, this project is 
not part of JAXR in any way. It is not an API but an actual implementation ( 
which is on the order of 60-75% complete) of the specification. Note also that 
this code base is different from the binaries available on the Sun web site. 
Although we have shown this implementation we have not previously made it 
available to the public. The code base does not have any requirements for an app 
server nor an ldap server.

If you might have any interest in working on this project, then it would be most 
helpful for you to send an email to the general@xml.apache.org alias (you may 
have to sign up on the alias first if you are not already a participant).

With your support and help, I am confident that we could create a robust ebXMLRR 
implementation community.

ebXML (electronic business XML) is an initiative sponsored by OASIS and 
UN/CEFACT to create "a modular suite of specifications that enables enterprises 
of any size and in any geographical location to conduct business over the 

One of the specifications in the ebXML suite deals with XML registries and 
repositories: "The OASIS ebXML Registry TC develops specifications to achieve 
interoperable registries and repositories, with an interface that enables 
submission, query and retrieval on the contents of the registry and repository."

Details can be found at:

As part of our work on the ebXML initiative, Sun Microsystems Inc. has developed 
a JavaTM based implementation of the registry and repository specification that 
we have shown on various occasions such as trade show demos.

We have received numerous inquiries from many different parts of the developer 
community expressing interest in being able to work on this implementation to 
produce a fully specification compliant implementation.

Sun has determined and given approval for making this implementation available 
to an open source community. Consequently, we would like to submit this proposal 
to the members of the Apache XML project for consideration of accepting this 
donation as a sub-project.

Thank you very much for your attention to and consideration for this proposal.

We look foward to your questions, comments, or concerns.

Sincerely yours,
