Subject: RE: TPA and ebXML Header question

It is fine if a specific business process utilizes business level acks.
A robust ms also needs ms level acks.
There is a need for both.

Marty and David,

All of the business aspects of document processing,
including what kinds of acks are expected, are defined
by the Commercial Transaction patterns that are part
of the BP Collaboration Metamodel now (finally)
posted on the BP work page at:

(They are actually pretty much the same as RosettaNet,
so the POC vendors should know how to handle them.)

Isn't the confirm you are talking about part of the business process?  It
seems to me that you want the business process to say "I got it" rather
than having the messaging service say "I was able to parse it OK and passed
it on to the business process but I it isn't my job to know if the business
process actually got it or fumbled the ball."

Marty - this will depend on the business workflow use case.  Some
will require an explicit confirm - before proceeding to the next step.

We should support both models - but default to
'delivery accepted without confirm'.
