Subject: 15-day Public Review for OASIS ebMS v3.0 Part 2, Advanced Features

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

OASIS ebXML Messaging Services Version 3.0: Part 2, Advanced Features
Committee Specification Draft 03 / Public Review Draft 02
16 February 2011

Specification Overview:

This specification complements the ebMS 3.0 Core Specification
by specifying advanced messaging functionality for message
service configuration, message bundling, messaging across
intermediaries (multi-hop) and transfer of (compressed)
messages as series of smaller message fragments.

The main function of intermediaries as defined in this
specification is to provide message routing and forwarding
based on standardized SOAP message headers, allowing a sending
MSH to ignore the ultimate message destination and abstract
away from lower-level transport parameters such as the URL of
the ultimate receiving MSH and message exchange pattern bindings.
The intermediary functionality defined here supports message
relaying across segmented networks, synchronous and asynchronous
bindings and both active (push) and passive (pull message
stores) forwarding styles. Multi-hop paths may consist of any
number of intermediaries.

This second review of the specification contains editorial
changes to correct and clarify issues raised during its first
review period.  No changes to the functionality described in
the specification have been made as part of these changes.

The OASIS ebXML Messaging Services TC [1] was chartered to
develop and recommend technology for the transport, routing
and packaging of business transactions using standard Internet

Public Review Period:  The public review starts today,
03 April 2011 and ends 18 April 2011. The specification was
previously submitted for a 60-day public review on 13 August
2010 [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes
made from the previous review of 13 August 2010.  Changes are
highlighted in the diff-marked PDF and editable source files

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.
