Subject: RE: Messaging Sequencing (was: TPA and ebXML Header question)
Dale, [Note: I did not send this to email@example.com as I'm not a member of that list and it just bounces.] By "three separate businesses" it sounds like you mean 3 separate legal entities which do not share a computer. Yep, that is the distributed case I didn't touch -- trickier. Actually, I think that is out or scope for TRP (my opinion) but would be interested in hearing what others think. But I agree with you that the business process folk should come along and tell us about these things if they are expecting us to provide a service to do it for them. ASAP!! They have it written up? <flame-resistant armour on> I venture that this type of service would at least require a well defined service interface, if not a real API :-) </flame-resistant armour on> Best regards, Henry ------------------------------------ At 02:07 PM 10/19/2000 -0400, Moberg, Dale wrote: > > >[snip] >> >> On your second point, for the example, a separate MIME part >> for each of "in stock, tracking id, and credit approved" >> messages would items in the manifest for each will do the trick >> without the MS having to add XML to bundle the three together. >> Of course there are other ways.
