Subject: RE: ebXML will end up being too expensive for small business
>>>ebXML will end up being too expensive for small business, and very similar to EDI which preceded it<<< Two of the goals for the transport routing & packaging group are, I quote: "1) to scale from SMEs to large companies 2) to scale from low power to high end solutions" So we definitely have small business in mind. From a messaging perspective I think what this should mean is that if you are small business equipped with email and an XML aware browser that handles XML style sheets, then you should be able to communicate. Would this meet the requirement? It doesn't look like EDI to me. David -----Original Message----- From: William J.

Boyle, at http://www.deja.com/getdoc.xp?AN=624807728&fmt=text. Can this possibly be true? What have we wrought? If only "enterprise-scale" entities can use it, what about ebXML's promise to bring B2B interoperability to the masses? William J. Kammerer FORESIGHT Corp. 4950 Blazer Memorial Pkwy.
