Subject: Geyer/Clark 4/12/2005: Status Summary of ebXML Specs
Carol and Jamie, recently we provided an updated status summary and asked if this information may be used in external messaging. Do you see this can be used and how (and in what way) could the ebxml-jc assist in ensuring this information gets to the community? Thanks. Attachment
Summary (resent 12 April 2005) =============================== Question: On future update, do we add adoption indicators. * ebMS: v3.0 (in work, draft) o Draft in work. F2F held in January 2005, however progress has been slower than anticipated with a small group. 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: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/ebxml-msg/download.php/11373/wd-ebms-3_0.html (February 2005) o Status: May meet at OASIS symposium. No projected date for v3.0 Committee Draft status. * ebReg/Rep v3.0 (Committee Specifications approved, 15 March 2005) o v3.0 RIM and RS achieved Committee Draft in February 2005 and concluded public review 14 March 2005. The ebXML RIM and RS Committee Drafts were approved 15 March 2005, which lays the groundwork to move to OASIS standard. OASIS standardization process in progress for both specifications. o Significant improvements have been made including SAML support, WS-I BP compliance, event notification, content management capabilities, etc. o Specification references: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/regrep/document.php?document_id=11383 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 (in work, draft) o Errata v2.1 distributed in draft form in early February 2005. Work continues slowly on negotiation and alignment with ebMS and ebBP specification development in the areas of role bindings, transactions, etc. 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: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/ebxml-cppa/document.php?document_id=11280 * ebBP: v2.0 (in work, TC review of pre-Committee Draft started 23 Feb 2005) o 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. o A pre-notification was sent to key user communities to solicit early comments and investment. Valuable feedback has been received and comments resolved. o Pre-notification reference: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/ebxml-bp/email/archives/200502/msg00135.html o TC quorate vote to proceed to Committee Draft vote 5 April 2005. Vote will be initiated by 14 April 2005 (ballot will be open until 22 April 2005). * ebXML IIC v1.1 (Committee Draft package) o In January 2005, the IIC updated its conformance and interoperability packages including the IIC framework and achieved v1.1 o Committee Draft status. This v1.1 update provides many improvements, and has also resulted in a freely available implementation o 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). o NIST open implementation: http://ebxmltesting.nist.gov/. Three implementations have been conducted by NIST, Korbit, and Drake Certivo. o v1.1 IIC Committee Drafts: http://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/ebxml-iic/document.php?document_id=10896 Other ===== Core Components: Inquiry to UBL (Crawford and BosaK) 12 April 2005. Architecture: Reference ebSOA TC o John Hardin, TC chair, has expressed an interest in restructuring the current architecture document. This will use (roughly) the format of the technical white paper outline that the ebxml-jc has developed. ebSOA will assist with architecture.
