Subject: ebxml-iic 9/29/2003: Draft Working XML 2003 Scenario

Below is a draft 'very' abstract summary for the XML 2003.  I'm still 
pending inputs from NCA but would like your feedback so I can submit the 
summary tomorrow.  I've also attached the XML Europe 2003 presentation 
from eBES (not with demonstration but with the scenario that defines 
it).  Please send your comments prior to COB on Tuesday (for those of us 
in Europe and/or US; Wednesday as early as practical for NCA, please).

Thanks to Tim for his suggestions as well as to Serm (as I took part of 
our work on ICEC summary for a few opening words).
Testing is instrumental for a successful implementation and deployment 
of inter-enterprise eBusiness standards. B2B testbeds are enabling 
instruments to:
  - Assure and assess quality of emerging standards
  - Promote standards adoption in the vendor products and by users
  - Validate conformance of the products to standards
  - Validate interoperability between the vendor products and their 

To meet these business needs and instill business confidence, the OASIS 
ebXML  Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance (IIC) developed 
the ebXML Test Framework v.1.0.  In the first release, this framework 
defined a test suite for ebXML Messaging Service (ebMS) basic 
interoperability - for conformance and interoperability testing - and is 
continuing its work to provide test specifications for other ebXML and 
industry payload specifications.

In this real-business scenario, the ebXML IIC and two test suites will 
exercise key elements of the ebXML Test Framework including conformance 
and interoperability for remote and local reporting modes.  In addition, 
the IIC has defined connection and service mode for the using the Test 
Driver and Test Service components.  The ebXML IIC is collaborating with 
two test suite groups in the United States and in South Korea.

The real-world test scenario involves a supply chain where a buyer or 
supplier - a marketplace product, process engine, or message handler 
service - must test an upgrade  with their solutions as well as with 
their customers. The enhancements will then be integrated into 
production operations.

This incremental testing process is a new requirement by the supply 
chain to ensure the product functions meet the reliability goals of the 
supply chain environment.

This testing may involve functions such as:
  - Conformance: Generation of a payload containers, resending of retries
  - Interoperability: Asynchronous request, signed acknowledgements, and 
error handling

Background information:

The ebXML IIC developed test specifications for a test framework and 
procedures to automate the ebXML conformance and interoperability 
tests.  The test framework specifies distributed software components. 
This OASIS technical committee (TC) is focused on test automation, 
computable execution and verifiable results.

Joining ebXML IIC are NCA and Drake Certivo.  In 2002, the Department of 
e-Business Research, Knowledge and Information Technology Division of 
the National Computerization Agency (NCA) completed the development of 
their conformance test requirements for ebMS, Registry/Repository, and 
Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement (CPP/A) as well as ebMS 
interoperability test requirements. They are now enhancing their test 
bed to follow the ebXML IIC test framework.

Drake Certivo will also demonstrate their test suite functionality based 
on this test framework. Drake Certivo has conducted interoperability and 
compliance tests for RosettaNet.
