Does your contact want to come out of the woodshed
and explain that statement?

How is it an "ebxml killer"?

Their own FAQ says:
"What is the relationship between WSCI and ebXML BPSS?
BPSS is ebXML's XML-based expression of a choreographed message exchange
among business partners. The view point of BPSS is always on the
exchange between the parties. An atomic exchange is called a
BusinessTransaction. BPSS allows you to specify a choreography of
BusinessTransactions. This is called a BinaryCollaboration. WSCI is a
generic expression of one party's interface to any message exchange
choreography. So while not specifically designed for BPSS, it could
serve as the description of a party's interface to either a high level
BPSS BinaryCollaboration, and/or a low level BPSS BusinessTransaction."

Why do they want to kill ebXML?
Why do you think they want to kill ebXML?
Come to think of it, there's a lot of ebXML-bashing
even on this list...

Yeah, why would Sun want to kill ebXML?

Hmmm. Maybe that's why they want to kill ebXML - it's not proprietary.

Good question!

Thanks for the alert,
