Subject: RE: Apache/ebXML
Krishna, Just as an FYI. During the San Jose ebXML conference (long time ago) I did an informal poll of the participants to measure the level of interest in an Apache implementation. The response was very mixed. I know that Sun would be happy to contribute to such an effort but it would need to be done through a broad-based collaborative effort. Having Sun as the only contributor to Apache sends the wrong message about what Apache.org is all about. I don't have a good sense of how many would be interested in *actively* working on an implementation - do you have any data to gauge the level of interest in this ? Krishna, perhaps we could start an e-mail sub-group and see what folks are willing to step up to ? Regards, Nick At 09:24 AM 11/27/2000 -0800, Krishna Sankar wrote: >Thanks.
