Subject: XML DevCon Features ebXML Proof-of-Concept

XML DevCon Features ebXML Proof-of-Concept

BEA Systems, Bowstreet, Commerce One, Contivo, Documentum, Fujitsu, IBM,
Killdara, Netfish/Iona, Schemantix, Sun Microsystems, TIE and XML Global
Implement Latest ebXML Specifications in Proof-of-Concept Demo

Boston, MA, USA and Geneva, Switzerland; 4 April 2001-Software vendors
from around the world will come together to demonstrate ebXML at the XML
DevCon conference in New York City on 10 April 2001. BEA Systems,
Bowstreet, Commerce One, Contivo, Documentum, Fujitsu, IBM, Killdara,
Netfish/Iona, Schemantix, Sun Microsystems, TIE and XML Global will
together simulate a global, electronic business trading network using
publicly available ebXML specifications for Messaging, Trading Partner
Agreements and Registry Repository. UN/CEFACT and OASIS, sponsors of
ebXML, point to this demonstration as proof of the stability of the
ebXML specifications, all of which are now in the quality review process
for final ratification in May 2001.

XML DevCon will be a great opportunity for anyone involved in
electronic commerce to witness ebXML in action, stated Klaus-Dieter
Naujok of Netfish Technologies, chair of ebXML and member of the
UN/CEFACT Steering Group. These 13 vendors represent the thousands of
participants from companies and organizations worldwide who have put so
much effort into developing the ebXML specifications.

As we near completion of our 18-month initiative, were seeing a
tremendous response from the community for ebXML-compliant products,
said Bill Smith of Sun Microsystems, member of the ebXML executive
committee and a president of the OASIS Board of Directors. ebXML
vendors appreciate that the demand is there, and this demonstration is
an important milestone on the road to delivery.

Attendees of XML DevCon will take a step-by-step tour of how ebXML can
be used to dynamically formulate trading partnerships through a registry
service and exchange electronic business transactions with a consistent
XML-based messaging infrastructure.
The ebXML demonstration in New York will feature actual payloads from
the Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG)--although ebXML can be used
to exchange any type of business transactions.

In addition to the 13 vendors participating in the XML One conference,
Interwoven and Cisco provided software for the ebXML demonstration. NTT
Communications, Savvion, Sterling Commerce, Viquity and XMLSolutions
also were instrumental in the proof-of-concept development.

About ebXML
ebXML (www.ebXML.org) is an International Initiative established by
UN/CEFACT and OASIS in late 1999 with a mandate to undertake an 18-month
program of work to research and identify the technical basis upon which
the global implementation of XML (Extensible Markup Language) can be
standardized. The goal of ebXML is to facilitate open trade between
organizations regardless of size by enabling XML to be used in a
consistent manner to exchange electronic business data.

UN/CEFACT (www.uncefact.org) is the United Nations body whose mandate
covers worldwide policy and technical development in the area of trade
facilitation and electronic business. Headquartered in Geneva, it has
developed and promoted many tools for the facilitation of global
business processes including UN/EDIFACT, the international EDI standard.
Its current work programme includes such topics as Simpl-edi and Object
Oriented EDI and it strongly supports the development and implementation
of open, interoperable global standards and specifications for
electronic business.

OASIS (http://www.oasis-open.org) is the international, not-for-profit
consortium that advances electronic business by promoting open,
collaborative development of interoperability specifications. OASIS
serves as the home for industry groups interested in developing XML
specifications. OASIS sponsors include Access360, Accenture, Adobe
Systems, AND Data Solutions, Arbortext, Auto-trol, Aventail, Baltimore
