Subject: ebXML Messaging Services Specification Gains RosettaNet Support

ebXML Messaging Services Specification Gains RosettaNet Support

Consortium Announces Plans to Support ebXML in Implementation Framework

Boston, MA, USA and Geneva, Switzerland; 27 April 2001 – International
consortium, RosettaNet, announced plans to integrate support for the
UN/CEFACT and OASIS-backed ebXML Messaging Services Specification in
future releases of RosettaNet's Implementation Framework (RNIF). An
initiative of the UN/CEFACT and OASIS, ebXML standardizes the secure
packaging, routing and transfer of electronic information.  RosettaNet,
which represents more than 400 companies and over 1 trillion USD in
annual information technology, electronic components and semiconductor
manufacturing revenues, provides RNIF as a framework for electronic
business process development and implementation.

"RosettaNet has been active in the ebXML development since the
initiative's inception, and we are pleased by this announcement of their
implementation plans," said Klaus-Dieter Naujok, chair of ebXML and
member of the UN/CEFACT Steering Group. "By supporting the ebXML
Messaging Services Specification, which integrates SOAP 1.1, RosettaNet
demonstrates its commitment to the adoption of an open messaging service
standard that can be used universally, regardless of industry or
geography, to transport electronic information between trading

"While RosettaNet remains committed to developing business process
standards required to support the complex needs of the high-technology
industry, we also want to ensure interoperability across all supply
chains. To that end, we see tremendous value in ensuring our vertical
supply chain standards are supported by a horizontal, universally
accepted messaging service, such as ebXML," said Jennifer Hamilton,
RosettaNet CEO.

The ebXML Messaging Services Specification ensures the secure packaging,
routing and transfer of electronic information over the Internet. As an
underlying communication protocol, the ebXML Messaging Services
Specification can be used universally, regardless of industry or
geography, to transport electronic information between trading partners.

"RosettaNet, UN/CEFACT and OASIS share a very 'open' philosophy. Our
organizations are dedicated to presenting the electronic business
community with a complementary standards, rather than fragmented ones,"
said Laura Walker, executive director of OASIS. "Collaboration makes
good business sense and in the end will provide companies with more
cost-effective, highly interoperable solutions."

According to ebXML Messaging Services Project Team Leader, Rik Drummond
of the Drummond Group, "RosettaNet’s support of the ebXML Messaging
Services Specification will facilitate the interoperability of supply
chains across multiple industries. RosettaNet's support is very exciting
news for electronic business on a global scale."

About RosettaNet
RosettaNet (www.rosettanet.org) is an independent, non-profit consortium
dedicated to the collaborative development and rapid deployment of open
Internet-based business standards that align processes within the global
high-technology trading network.

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 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 Accenture, Access360, Adobe
