Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] ebXML vocabulary

This is a very promising announcement.
I remember bagging a few people last year on this list and it looks like some sensibility is finally coming to ebXML. People aren't after much, just a fairly simple system that works.
The real challenge then becomes to actually build it. I remember about ten years ago X.500 and X.400 was at a similar point. They were making press releases saying that they were onto something good. I think they were.
Sadly for X.500 though, it became incredibly expensive and didn't work that well. Hopefully ebXML won't make the same mistakes.
Keep on going, it looks like you're on the right path.

Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] ebXML vocabulary

As Martin Sachs articulated earlier in the week, ebXML does not have a standard set of documents similar to xCBL.  The ebXML suite of technical specifications can be broken down into two separate areas - architecture and content.  Most of the ebXML architecture specs (Messaging, CPP, Registry) are under the purview of  OASIS.  The ebXML content specifications (Business Process and Core Components) are under the purview of UN/CEFACT.  However, these UN/CEFACT content pieces are syntax neutral solutions that are devoid of XML. 
The leading activity in developing XML within the ebXML framework is the  OASIS Universal Business Language Technical Committee headed by Jon Bosak.  UBL is decomposing the xCBL 3.0 suite of transactions to identify ebXML Core Component and Business Information Entities.  Those BIE's are then being constructed into standard XML schema's using a set of carefully crafted XML design rules.  The design rule work, under the leadership of Eve Mailer, is focused on XSD as the UBL canonical form, and is determining the best fit features and uses of XSD in promoting UN/CEFACT Core Components into full fledged international business standards that supports both the ebXML concept of context and extension methodology.  
You can read more about UBL at  http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/.  A white paper, UBL: The Next Step for Global E-Commerce, is available at: http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/msc/200204/ubl.pdf.  A position paper setting forth the UBL value proposition for industry XML initiatives is available at http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lsc/200204/industry.pdf

I want just the ebXML vocabulary like http://www.xcbl.org/xcbl35/DTD/doclist.html.
