Re: [ebxml-dev] ebXML implementations/experience

ebXML provides an XML-based infrastructure that can replace traditional
EDI.  UBL standardizes a set of XML formats for business messages that
can be used with ebXML (or WS*, or email, or whatever you've got for
exchanging XML documents).  I've attached an ancient diagram that
illustrates the original concept; as shown in the figure, UBL was
designed to be used in an ebXML framework, but in fact it's completely
agnostic with regard to the transport mechanism and so on.

The UBL implementers hang out on the ubl-dev list, which you can
