Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] Quote Negotiation

There are various ways in the BP modeling methodology to deal with the situation that you describe, but it doesn't seem as if that is what you are asking.  Is it?

It seems more that you want to know specifically how to do it with messages.  If that is the case, then you can't do any of it yet with eBXML since there are as yet no standard messages for RFQ, quote, etc.  Various things are in development.  If you need
an XML solution right now you might look at xCBL.
