Subject: Sun's ebXML friendly analyst slide deck

it was nice to see Regrep on Sun's SOA deck at its annual analyst
conference last week. Not just UDDI, which is what one usually sees on
vendor slide decks. This is a step forward in terms of ebXML marketing,
which has often taken a backseat (at Sun). it was surprising enough I
didn't even grok it immediately. I asked Joe Keller, VP Developer and
Application Platforms, about ebXML and he gave me the "hey look again"
look. Doh! 

Sun is the only major systems vendor pointing to the kind of SOA
interoperability approach laid out some time ago by Joe Chiusano--that
is, a UDDI ebXML cooexistence paradigm. Rather than one technology must
die marketing. The notion that a royalty free, semantically rich
platform, with open source implementations emerging, will "die" seems

SeeBeyond and Sun managed to beat IBM in a competitive bid at the UK NHS
- that $multibillion overhaul of national healthcare IT. ebXML was in
the mix. Go figure. Of course the project may all go horribly wrong, if
UK government project management goes as disastrously as usual. But its
interesting nonetheless

ebXML Registry has been adopted by IHE as the foundation for  "
Cross-Enterprise Clinical Documents Sharing (XDS)". They chose ebXML
Registry because of its strong "Federated, Secure Information
Management" capabilities.

The following is the link to the IHE specification which references the
ebXML Registry specs:


HL7 is using ebXML Registry for managing HL7 profiles and other data.

Here is Ed's blog entries on this:


Here another HL7 ebXML Registry related link:


Here is a meta-link for ebXML Registry:
