Subject: ebxml jc 2/23/2005: Status Summary of ebXML Specifications

As we discussed 9 February, an overview of the specification progress 
was needed. Here is a brief, albeit draft summary. Comments welcome and 
inputs appreciated. I apologize ahead of time for the lateness of this 
information. Thank you. Reminder about today's call at 7:30 a.m. PST:

    * ebMS: v3.0
          o Draft in work. F2F held in January 2005, however progress
            has been slower than anticipated with a small group.
          o Although progress has been slow, key changes are in work
            such as integration with WS-Reliability, payload services,
            security improvements, WS-I BP conformance, at a minimum.
          o Working document reference:
            (February 2005)
          o Status: May meet at OASIS symposium. No projected date for
            v3.0 Committee Draft status.

    * ebReg/Rep: v3.0
          o RIM and RS achieved Committee Draft in February 2005. Public
            review has begun. Si
          o Review notice: Public review continues to 14 March 2005.
            Significant improvements have been made including SAML
            support, WS-I BP compliance, event notification, content
            management capabilities, etc.
          o Specification references:
          o FAQ summary: http://www.ebxml.org/ebusinessxmlregistry.pdf
          o Capabilities summary update:
            http://xml.coverpages.org/ni2005-02-14-a.html (from Cover Pages)

    * ebCPPA v2.1
          o Errata v2.1 distributed in draft form in early February
            2005. Work continues slowly on negotiation
          o and alignment with ebMS and ebBP specification development
            in the areas of role bindings, transactions, etc.
          o Progress has been made in abstracting some of the ebCPPA
            concepts to enable effective use of many underlying
            protocols such as those for web services, AS2 etc.
          o Errata v2.1 reference:

    * ebBP v2.0
    * v2.0 Working draft is entering formal TC review starting today, 23
      February 2005. Package includes schema, XSLT example transform for
      v1.01=>2.0 migration, signals schema and example, comments and
      work item list, glossary. Many improvements have been made in
      state transitions, composability (ComplexBTA and
      OperationMapping), role binding and monitoring constructs. In
      addition, the BT patterns have been concretized and extensible
      patterns developed to enable the user community. 
    * Working package was uploaded (and then revised) 22 February 2005.
      A pre-notification has been developed for key user communities to
      solicit early comments and investment. This will be distributed
      after the working draft enters the TC formal review (internal
      only) in preparation for Committee Draft vote.
    * Specification draft reference:
    * Pre-notification reference:

    * ebXML IIC v1.1
          o In January 2005, the IIC updated its conformance and
            interoperability packages including the IIC framework and
            achieved v1.1 Committee Draft status. This v1.1 update
            provides many improvements, and has also resulted in a
            freely available implementation from NIST. Improvements
            include more comprehensive web services and ebXML testing
            support. The team has also been working with OASIS on
            interoperability planning for expanded activities within
            OASIS standardization development and with a TAB subteam
            that is investigating how to rationalize conformance
            criteria (including informal discussions with W3C).
