Subject: Re: UDDI, ebXML, and ecoFramework


Brian Hayes of CommerceOne worked closely with the BP team in the development of
its metamodel to make sure it was based on the eCo framework, considered to be
elegant and mature.  "Aligns" is probably an overused term these days, with
multiple efforts being pulled together.  While the use of eCo for trading
partner registration and discovery may not have been overtly discussed in ebXML
plenary meetings, it was discussed and agreed to in BP meetings.

Thanks, Rik, but there are only two specific references to eCO in the BP
metamodel document v2.
They say:

126 -129

2. Markets and Parties
This is the part of the model that allows organizations to register
themselves relative to the markets they perform in and the types of services
they offer. This aligns with the first four of the seven layers of the eCO

679 - 680 "an eCO style self-registration on your own site might be

I assume that the first reference is the most significant.  I'm not familiar
enough with eCo or the BP work effort to know whether "aligns" means just
"corresponds to" or "is based on".  In either case, I still think that
making a generalization about planning to use eCo is still an overstatement.
