RE: [ebxml-dev] P2P for e-business - applications?

Quick answer - no.  I have seen many start ups come and go using a P2P
model for business and B2B.  Few if any real P2P examples persist though
the design principles will find a friend in the drive to SOA.  There are
many P2P books - some even with e-Commerce in the title - that are
several years old now and they (what they professed) mostly came to

Your curiosity though shows that there are others like you - so it is
just a matter of time.  There are clear relationship and financial
issues that inhibit the adoption and exploitation of P2P in the
business/e-business world.

Subject: [ebxml-dev] P2P for e-business - applications?

I've been interested, partly just pure curiosity, in
how P2P might be used for e-business, such as
between small and medium sized businesses
and such as using OASIS and other open

I noticed an article on the subject
so I gather there has been interest in it for some time
by various groups.

What I'd like to ask is: Has anyone come across
applications (opensource especially or services like
a B2B version of Napster) geared toward P2P for B2B?
I wondered if such things are being used widely by
any small businesses; also, which of the various well
known apps (such as for ebXML) might be useful in
such a scenario, within the means of a particularly
small business say?

I'm also interested in whether human interfaces for
such scenarios might use browser and, say, XForms
or the like or whether the requirements of P2P demand
more sophistication - unless one has Google's human
resources, say :-)

Many thanks

Stephen Green
