Fair enough, why don't we run a new poll and ask that question. Are they
in competition? Is someone who is considering an ebXML solution also
looking at a web services based one....

To make it fair, why not give me the options you want, the question and
we can see what happens. There is an open door policy when it comes to
suggestions for polls and most other things also. 

Some vendors are now releasing B2B web services products and mission
critical networks built on web services etc. Does this not place web
services in competition with ebXML? I realise ebXML is a lot lot more
than web services in terms of specs etc and objectives and is based on
open standards, but vendors are stepping in and filling the gaps,
bringing them into competition. Hence why I personally think this poll
is worth having.   

I look out for the web services journal article.


PS. By the way, we are also looking for writers and anyone wishing to
write about some of these topics and others is welcome to get in
