OASIS member organization will have a single vote on the ballot.

During the member review period comments may be sent to the TC via the

members to review:


The OASIS ebXML CPPA TC has approved "Collaboration-Protocol Profile
and Agreement Specification Version 2.0" as a Committee Specification,
and has voted to submit the specification to the OASIS membership for
their review and consideration for approval as an OASIS Standard.

The OASIS TC is providing the following required items for OASIS
members to review:

(a)  formal specification that is a valid member of its type

The OASIS ebXML CPPA specification is found at

(b) appropriate documentation for the specification

The specification includes its own documentation. Examples and schemas
for the specification available at the following locations:



(c) a clear English-language summary of the specification

A Business Partner is an entity that engages in Business Transactions
with another Business Partner(s). The Message-exchange capabilities of
a Party may be described by a Collaboration-Protocol Profile (CPP).
The Message-exchange agreement between two Parties may be described by
a Collaboration-Protocol Agreement (CPA). A CPA may be created by
computing the intersection of the two Partners' CPPs. Included in the
CPP and CPA are details of transport, messaging, security constraints,
and bindings to a Business-Process-Specification (or, for short,
Process-Specification) document that contains the definition of the
interactions between the two Parties while engaging in a specified
electronic Business Collaboration.

The way each Party can exchange information, in the context of a
Business Collaboration, can be described by a Collaboration-Protocol
Profile (CPP). The agreement between the Parties can be expressed as a
Collaboration-Protocol Agreement (CPA). This specification defines and
explains the information items, and their organization, that are
present within documents conforming to the Collaboration-Protocol
Profile andCollaboration-Protocol Agreement schema.

(d) certification by at least three OASIS member organizations that
they are successfully using the specification

See the following mail messages for successful use statements and
notes regarding IP:

XML Global Technologies


Cyclone Commerce

(e) an account of or pointer to votes and comments received in any
earlier attempts to standardize substantially the same specification,
together with the originating TC's response to each comment

This specification has not previously been submitted to OASIS
membership, so there are no previous votes or comments to respond to.

(f) a pointer to the publicly visible comments archive for the
originating TC

The archives of the TC mail list are available at

TC meeting minutes are available on the TC's web page at

To date, no comments have been received through the public comment
list for the ebXML CPPA TC.

(g) a statement from the chair of the TC certifying that all members
of the TC have been provided with a copy of the OASIS IPR policy.

From Dale Moberg:
 "The TC chair certifies that all members have been provided with a
copy of the OASIS IPR policy. The mail message found at
states that all TC members must be made aware of the OASIS IPR policy
and directs them to the on-line version of the policy."
