Subject: [ebxml-msg] BPSS 1.04 Announcement

The BPSS Project Team of the UN/CEFACTís Electronic Business Transition ad-hoc Working Group (eBTWG) is announcing the release of its "ebXML Business Process Specification Schema" (BPSS), Version 1.04, and corresponding XML Schema for "Internal Review" under the UN/CEFACT Open Development Process.  Technical implementers, interested industry experts, members of the eBTWG, and other interested parties are encouraged to comment. This version of the BPSS and subsequent revisions are targeted to become the "ebXML Business Process Specification Schema" (BPSS), Version 2.00, after completing Public Review and Implementation Verification review cycles.


This review period ends 9 June 2002. Please submit your comments to Pallavi Malu (email: pallavi.g.malu@intel.com) and Brian S. Hayes (email:brian.hayes@uclalumni.net).


The documents to be reviewed are:

Specification Schema (BPSS)

   - Version 1.04, PDF Format, ebBPSS1.04.zip

XML Schema for ebXML BPSS 1.04

   - Version 1.04, XML/XSD, ebBPSS1.04.xsd.zip


The documents are available at the following locations:




In order to assist in the review and commenting, the specification has each line start with a unique line number to allow placements of comments against them. For each comment, reviewers shall provide the specification's line number range, the comment itself, the rational for the comment, suggestion for change, and target version. If you feel that the issue must be addressed in BPSS 2.0, put "2.0."  If it can be deferred to a later version, put "2.x" or "3.0."  If you do not have an opinion, leave blank. A template for comments has been provided at the download sites (see BPSS_v1.04_comments_yourname.zip); submissions in other standard readable formats are acceptable (e.g. e-mail and plain text).


After the end of the review period the project team will review the comments, revise the working draft, and re-circulate it until the reviewers are satisfied with the content. As changes are made, the updated document and disposition log will be republished. This will allow everyone to not only see the changes, but also the rational behind them and reasons for suggestions that were not accepted.
