Subject: UDDI as the registry for ebXML components: Typo?
In the UDDI Technical Note "UDDI as the registry for ebXML components" , the Problem statement (p.3) states: "This introduces significant concerns of cost and manageability, because ebXML and Web services impose separate infrastructure requirements and platform components." Is this entirely accurate, given that one can register and maintain Web services in an ebXML Registry? The entire Problem statement is reproduced below. I wonder if this is a typo. Joe 1.1 Problem statement Multiple consortia have initiated pilot projects using the ebXML framework for business-to-business transactions, while corporations have also begun adopting ebXML technologies for internal use. At the same time Web service technologies, which have significant momentum due to unprecedented industry support, are also being rolled out. This introduces significant concerns of cost and manageability, because ebXML and Web services impose separate infrastructure requirements and platform components. As a universal technology for publication and discovery of service metadata, UDDI allows the bridging of the two infrastructures by accommodating metadata registrations for Web services as well as ebXML framework components, enabling interoperability among trading partners using ebXML or Web services. However, a prescribed methodology of modeling services and components which are conformant to ebXML specifications is required to make interoperable solutions possible.  http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/uddi-spec/doc/draft/uddi-spec-tc-tn-uddi-ebxml-20030508.htm
