Subject: RE: Trading Partner Logical Identification based on EDIFACT or X12qualifiers


One thing that has impressed me about the people working in the ebXML effort
is their commitment to doing quality work and dedication to making ebXML a
success. I can honestly say I haven't met anyone who is knowingly or
willfully producing a  "half-assed" (your term) solution. But clearly you
believe strongly that a regrep API is needed to produce a "robust" solution,
and maybe some of us are simply missing your point, so please help us
understand your concerns more clearly. I have a few questions:

Can you be precise and describe the "deployment ramifications" of not having
a regrep API? List the functionality that would be lost and/or describe the
impact it would have on a B2B system.

Can you define what is meant by robust? I believe a side-by-side comparative
analysis showing a system using a regrep API and one without citing the
pros/cons of each would help us see your point more clearly.

Can you provide an example of an interchange where regrep access is
required? In other words, what type of interchange cannot occur without a
regrep API.

I'm hoping your answers will provide everyone a better understanding of the
