Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] gorilla hair vs. beach balls


Jean-Jacques,

    most of the  "things" that ebXML deals with are  there  more or less 
independently on the fact that  Internet is used, imho.
It is a matter of fact when "money" is involved in the exchanges.

One of the nice things that  I like in ebXML, is its ability to deal 
with all the "business related aspects" in a consistent framework.

When I buy some bread from my baker, I buy according to an agreed upon 
sequence of (trans)actions; this sequence, together with the fact that 
we use some currency, that he may or may not accept a credit-card, that 
I cannot exit the shop without paying...or that he cannot pretend I did 
not give him money... are all part of an agreement which is there (even 
if implicit in the use).
When I do business over the internet, I would do the same by means of 
using electronically-enforceable artifacts.
