SV: [ebxml-dev] ebxml virtual appliance

I have been trying to reply to David Weber privately on some subjects related to this, but it seems my email will not go through to him. Probably being identified as Spam somewhere.

I like your notes below in tandem with what I posted earlier.
Essentially there are three main distribution / deployment models:
a) Download ZIP / Installer package + domain packs
    - user installs to their platform of choice
    - intended for integraters to deliver end user solution
b) Bootable CD
    - Your details below
    - My ebXML appliance software
    - Links to online domain packs
c) Hosting option
    - a) is installed to hosting service
    - access and account management provided
    - user signs-up for remote "Google-style" account and use

Hi Bryan

There is a Linux distribution called "Small Business Server" [1]

Copy & paste of its features:

o Internet Gateway
o Firewall
o E-mail
o Bandwidth and P2P Manager
o Multiwan
o Intrusion Prevention
o Web and FTP Servers
o Antispam/Antivirus
o Content Filtering
o File and Print Services
o Data backup
o Groupware

maybe add the following:

o Asterisk [2], the free public telephone system
o Free Software ebXML messaging gateway
o Free Software Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system (maybe at
least the server part of it)
o UBL import and export library for ERP system (do not know of an
available library yet)
o ... integration of the pre-setup ebXML messaging gateway with the
pre-setup ERP system.

>From the Linux crowed I know that there are Linksys and D-Link router
appliances which can be reprogrammed with a different Linux distribution
[3] (maybe with something like the SME Linux distribution). Such a SME
appliance will have the total cost of ~ 60$ (hardware and software

The makers of the Open Source Hermes ebXML messaging system have been
thinking about an appliance see here [4].

Not sure what you mean with a "virtual" appliance vs an "physical"
appliance ...
