Subject: RE: [ebcore] Receipts and Delivery Notifications
It might provide useful information for those considering adoption.
It is worth adding to an agenda for ebCore IMO.
At the request of some standards users I wrote an overview document on receipt and delivery notifications in B2B. It explains and compares concepts like reliable messaging (message-based and sequence-based), non-repudiation of receipt, signature confirmations, business signals, intermediaries and acknowledgments (in SOAP and in Multi-Corner models) and discusses ebMS 2.0, 3.0, AS2 MDNs, AS4 receipts, ETSI REM, ebBP Signals, WS-ReliableMessaging and the UN/CEFACT UMM.
I was thinking that this document might be of interest to a larger audience. In itself, there is nothing new in this document, so it is not a standards document. However, OASIS has a concept called Committee Notes and the ebCore charter has a reference to "adjunct documents complementing existing specifications", and this document might fit that profile.
Any views or opinions?
