UN/CEFACT and OASIS Introduce ebXML-DEV Mail List

Geneva, Switzerland and Boston, MA, USA; 22 May 2001 -- UN/CEFACT and
OASIS today announced the formation of ebXML-DEV, a mail list for the
ebXML development community. Hosted by OASIS, ebXML-DEV provides an open
forum for serious ebXML developers and those interested in implementing
ebXML to share information and experiences. Today’s announcement follows
the recent ratification of the ebXML specifications, which facilitate
open trade between organizations regardless of size by enabling XML to
be used in a consistent manner to exchange electronic business data.

“Now that we’ve reached our milestone of developing ebXML, we want to
support those involved in implementing the specifications,” said
Klaus-Dieter Naujok of IONA, member of the UN/CEFACT Steering Committee.
“The ebXML-DEV mail list fosters the productive discussion of ebXML
topics and provides a valuable resource for those seeking practical

“ebXML-DEV is a self-moderated forum for the open exchange of ideas,”
explained Karl Best, OASIS director of technical operations. “OASIS will
host the list as a service to the community, but the content of the
discussions will be driven by the participants themselves.”

Individuals may subscribe to ebXML-DEV online at http://www.ebxml.org.
