Subject: RE: GCI Press Releases

... and if you delve down into the "test scenarios" document that describes
how GCI plans to look at ebXML, you find the following ...

Following is the list of evaluations and tests requested by GCI Technical
Infrastructure team to be conducted by ebXML Pilot Test project team and
report their results and findings.

Communication  Protocol Tests
Test and validate the communication of the XML payload for the described
scenarios using the  ebXML Transport, Routing and Packaging specifications
for communication and acknowledgement at a communication protocol level

Business Process Modeling of the GCI Scenarios Tests
Test that the modeled process described in the Test scenarios  utilizing the
Rational Rose Modeling tool has created  " all"  the key deliverables
expected as per  ebXML Business Process Project team recommendations to
store within the ebXML Registry and Repository.

Core Component Utilization Tests
Test that the Common Business Object library for the ebXML Core Components
has been correctly  utilized within these test scenarios for Date, Party,
Line Item, Location, Address etc and it complies with the guidelines
described by the ebXML Core Component project team in terms of its detail
and definition.

Technical Architecture Compliance Tests
Advise if any Technical Architecture details have to be described further
for the test of these scenarios.

Overall ebXML Specifications Compliance Tests
Will these GCI Test Scenario help validate the viability of the proposed
ebXML standards to determine their applicability within the global
e-commerce marketplace.


... it looks to me as if GCI is seriously considering using much more than
just the Transport Routing & Packaging parts of ebXML.

Quoting from the GCI announcement/press release of 7/31/00
distributed by Melanie:

"Draft standards for the Global Commerce Internet Protocol will be 
available to all interested companies for proof of concept on 
August 1, 2000.  Following a period of trials, draft recommendations 
will be published as standards by the international standards bodies, 
EAN International and UCC, with the endorsement of the Global Commerce 
Initiative. The technical infrastructure standards have been developed 
by ebXML and form the basis of the GCI technical recommendation."

and further:
"There is currently an agreement between the Global Commerce Initiative 
and ebXML to endorse the proposed ebXML standards for message transportation

and routing. The work the Global Commerce Initiative has completed will be 
presented to ebXML as a basis for the testing and approval of these
[It is important to note that ebXML, which is a relatively new body
in 1999, is also working specifically on the development of standards in the

Internet.   Several of the GCI groups will work closely with this new
to discuss  agreements on standards. (ebXML is jointly run by OASIS, the 
Organisation for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards and 
UN/CEFACT, the United Nations body for Trade facilitation and Electronic 

If this doesn't constitute an official endorsement, I don't know what does!
