Subject: Re: Ack Message Payload??

Hi  Sanjay, Nick:

Even so that could spare some message exchanges,
I see the following difficulties in trying to use BP-level Acks and MS-level Acks

as substitute to each other:

- Even if we have Acks at MS level (i.e. in case using Rel Msg)
these probably do not replace BP-level Acks, which can be loaded with
payloads, as is the case in GCI processes for Tokyo.

- In the case of MS-level Acks that are generated for Rel Msg,
they indeed do not have any payload so far - do not need to
( that could create lots of overhead!) They only need to correlate
with the acknowledged message, based on messageID (RefToMessageId).
There will be lots of them , so they better be short.

- By "aware of ebXML", I assume you mean the MS could "forward"
the MS-level Acks it receives (or some of them) to the BP?
Then that becomes a new contract between BP and MS, for a kind of notification
(This could also concern error messages generated by the MS), that BP modelers
cannot assume for now...
