  In the automotive scenario there was an advance shipment notification document [?terminology?] and a corresponding receipt document. These were the only two payloads that I used in the runtime track.

  I'd like to make the advance request that the payloads in Vienna be kept -as simple as possible-. Ideally we'd all have small mockup application/gui that creates the message payload data dynamically, rather than reading a static file and sending it down the wire. Real HL7 applications would be nice, but the integration work required to ebXML-ize legacy apps would require more resources than a typical vendor would be willing to commit.

  Suppose a mockup HL7 dtd contained 5-10 elements per message. You would be addressing two very important concerns:

* The vendors have a better shot at implementing a nice looking gui/application that can generate the payload data dynamically, meaning a user form that the audience can grasp and visually connect to the underlying message data. [Killdara and Schemantix are some of the few vendors that can do automatic form-rendering for xml data, where most of us have to invent a new form per payload.]

* The "lightweight" and "easily adopted" marketing themes of ebXML messaging shine through.  At the same time, we show how HL7's lives have been made easier through adoption of a standard. [I feel as though the 2-page xml receipt I flashed to the London audience didn't impact as well as a 'paragraph' of XML would have.]

  In short, are you open to counterproposals on your schemas?
  Sig: my points are not exclusive to the HL7 scenario. Are schemas available for the rest of the runtime presentation?
