Subject: RE: [ebxml-dev] Needed help on ebxml structure


I think you are referring to ebXML Registry specification.
An ebXML Registry is both a "registry" and a "repository"
A rough analogy might be 
	repository -> warehouse
	registry -> catalog

The registry stores meta-information (as you would find in a catalog)
about the items stored in the repository. The meta-information
is also classified using classification schemes (just like categories
in a catalog). The ebXML registry can also be used simply as a registry,
if needed.

Now to answer your question. The "registry" is the directory service,
and the "repository" does need a database. Howe ever, the registry
itself may be implemented using a database. The ebXML Registry lets you use
queries also to access information the registry. For details, please
read the registry specs at www.ebxml.org

Hope this helps,

Sterling Commerce, Inc.
