Subject: FW: Compression (was RE: COMPLEXITY BIG ISSUE)

I'm forwarding this email from the Architecture list calling for ebXML to
support compression. This became an issues in some EDIINT testing also. It
makes sense to include compression in our set of requirements, especially if
payloads will be encoded using base64.

Subject: Compression (was RE: COMPLEXITY BIG ISSUE)

Is there no ebXML group that is considering the use of compression in
communications? Certainly in highly structured, low entropy communications
(such as we are discussing) compression ratios can exceed 10 times.

If we plan on supporting one or more compression algorithms, we will no
longer need to trade off size for readability. Furthermore, if encryption is
used at some level in the process [as I would expect], we will almost
certainly want to compress communications immediately prior to encryption to
remove redundancy.

I apologize if this is the wrong group for this message. It is my first
ebXML post.
