Re: [Ebxmlrr-tech] ebxml implementation

Hi ShodZ

Also being a student in the area of ebXML I spent quite some time
reading the various ebXML specifications. Reading a specification (the
ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement Specification for
example) once was not enough and I had to read it again and again as
there is sooo much information in such a specification...

Once I got a grasp of ebXML I was looking for some example code to learn
from that and maybe setup a sample scenario. Unfortunately, I could not
"just" download some applications and give it a test. Actually there are
some commercial applications where you can get a "trial" version and
have a look at it.

Luckily, depending on what you are after, there are a couple of open
source applications, which you can download, install and even study the
code. To be honest, I still havent done that but once I finish with my
studies I will check them out.

I ended up writing my own little ebXML bits and pieces (in particular in
the ebXML CPA formation process) ...

Have a look here for some open source projects:

http://www.freebxml.org (first class ebXML open source implementation
such as Hermes, an ebXML Messaging System, ebMail, like Hermes but based
on SMTP and a cool ebXML Message Mail client, and the ebMXL
http://www.openebxml.org (haven't checked in a while, not sure if they
have executable code or more models and the like)
http://www.sourceforge.net (search for ebXML, some in alpha/pre-alpha
http://www.schlegel.li/ebXML (my project CPA formation bits and pieces
under GPL)

Have a look here for some commercial and open source applications:


Good luck.
