Subject: Corrected: 15-day Public Review for AS4 Profile of ebMS 3.0 Version 1.0

My apologies for the repost. The original announcement had two erroneous links.

The OASIS ebXML Messaging Services TC members have produced an updated
Committee Specification Draft (CSD) and submitted this specification
for 15-day public review:

AS4 Profile of ebMS 3.0 Version 1.0
Committee Specification Draft 04 / Public Review Draft 03
25 May 2011

Specification Overview:
The AS4 profile of the ebMS 3.0 specification has been developed in
order to bring continuity to the principles and simplicity that made
AS2 successful, while adding better compliance to Web services
standards, and features such as message pulling capability and a
built-in Receipt mechanism. Using ebMS 3.0 as a base, a subset of
functionality is defined along with implementation guidelines adopted
based on the "just-enough" design principles and AS2 functional
requirements to trim down ebMS 3.0 into a more simplified and AS2-like
specification for Web Services B2B messaging.

TC Description:
The ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee designs Web
Services-based messaging protocols for the transport, routing and
packaging of B2B transactions.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts today, July 13, 2011 and ends July 28, 2011.
The specification was previously submitted for a 15-day public review
on 23 October 2009 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to
changes made from the previous review.

Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF file [3].

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from
potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not,
for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its
technical work.
