Best OASIS - Director, Technical Operations 978.667.5115 x206 email@example.com http://www.oasis-open.org Name of the TC: OASIS ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee Statement of Purpose: a Technical Committee in OASIS to develop and recommend technology for the transport, routing and packaging of business transactions using standard Internet technologies. This work will foster consistency across specifications developed in other forums and carry forward the work started in the ebXML Transport, Routing and Packaging project team. Further information on the ebXML Initiative can be found at http://www.ebxml.org. The TC intends to complete its work by December 31, 2002 and will reconsider its charter at that time. This Technical Committee will: * address maintenance issues that may arise in the implementation of ebXML Messaging Service Specification Version 1.0, including the development of minor releases of the Specification; * respond to requirements raised by committee members and by the joint OASIS -- UN/CEFACT Requirements and Technical Architecture Committees; * prepare Technical Reports, White Papers and other documents to further the consistent adoption of messaging service specifications; * proactively engage with related activities in external forums, especially the W3C Activities and Working Groups; * coordinate TC activities with other technical committees and work groups operating within OASIS and UN/CEFACT; and * develop future versions of the ebXML Messaging Service Specifications with consideration of related technologies adopted by other forums. The ebXML Messaging Technical Committee will use the ebXML Messaging Specification Version 1.0 as the starting point for discussion at the first meeting. This document is available at http://www.ebxml.org. At the first meeting, there will be a discussion of whether the TC will formally submit this document to the OASIS membership for adoption as an OASIS Standard. An initial schedule and list of deliverables for the committee is summarized below: * July 17-18, 2001 - First Meeting to be hosted by Sterling Commerce * October 31, 2001 - ebXML Messaging Service Specification Version 2 Requirements Document ready for review * 2nd Quarter, 2002 - Initial ebXML Messaging Service Specification Version 2.0 Draft available for review * 3rd Quarter, 2002 - Final ebXML Messaging Service Specification Version 2.0 Draft available We propose to establish the TC structure (including election of chair and other officers) and set a detailed schedule at the first meeting of the committee to accommodate the needs of the members, including dates for conference calls (most likely bi-weekly) and face-to-face meetings (most likely quarterly). Sterling Commerce will host the first meeting in Dallas, Texas on July 17-18, 2001; the meeting will be face-to-face with opportunity for dial-in participation. The TC will conduct its business in English. Brian Gibb (firstname.lastname@example.org) will be the interim chair.
