Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] WS-I


Absolutely correct.   There is a factor of time to market that can be
gained.

Hi Scott,
I thinkl you're fundamentally right, but just wanted to add a bit of
'tactical' business context to your second point. Without the business
collaboration layer prescribed, maybe something like the BP
Collaboration work we've been doing in eBTWG, one will simple see "the
some old wolf in new sheeps
clothing"; ie. as you mention another incarnation of 'point to point'
transactions without business context and worse yet without direction to
computable business objectives. 
The only caveat I'd like to add though is there is some 'business
mileage' today to be gained with WSDL/SOAP over the 'traditional
techniques' of ftp to elaborate EAI. Basically in opportunities for
application to application loose coupling, given the big push also going
on with the major software
vendors and a 'bunch' of low cost/free software appearing now, WSDL/SOAP
is perhaps a better way to 'hack something together' for a quick
business fix.
