Subject: FWD: re: POC liaison report
FYI. I don;t want to start a war here - but clearly the Coord group (of which I'm a member) could be accused of dropping the ball here, and needing to pick it up big time. I'll accept that, but can;t speak for everyone - some would argue just as hard its not Coords job! We'll have to get direction from the Executive committee on this ultimately, and of course POC was formed on the back end of Brussels and so is still learning too. Anyway - that's why we're getting together next week to resolve all these issues! Thanks, DW. -------------Forwarded Message----------------- From: David RR Webber, To: Brian Eisenberg, INTERNET:BrianE@DataChannel.com CC: [unknown], INTERNET:firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 03-08-100 3:22 PM RE: re: POC liaison report Message text written by Brian Eisenberg > Here's a quick update on the POC. The latest draft of the POC spec (v0.85) is located here: http://lists.ebxml.org/archives/ebxml-poc/200008/doc00001.doc. The POC team will be making a few minor changes to this version and plan to freeze the document by EOB today <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Brian - there's serious problems here!!! Can I be forgiven for thinking this is a warmed over RosettaNet implementation that a bunch of vendors are re-purposing as a wedge into ebXML? Notice almost the same 'demo' is being promoted at OAG too! I'm sorry but this has to be said, I'm not here to have a cozy love fest, but to deliver a quality solution that meets the ebXML Architecture and ebXML Requirements details - which this RosettaNet example is a million miles from right now IMHO. This is EXACTLY the sort of thing that Microsoft is objecting to about the ebXML work - and this is handing them the evidence on a plate. OK - quite apart from the politics. Let's get back to basics. The Coord team has put together some models and scenarios - the Architecture group also has made solid progress, and the RegRep team is closing in on their interchange spec's. Let's start there on building what a POC should look like, NOT the RosettaNet PIPs. Look forward to discussing more next week. Thanks, DW.
