Subject: [ubl-lcsc] The DRive Registry from X12

FYI - This is very interesting, I registered and drilled down into the
registry.  It works better than some of the other public registries I
have gone through in the past, and it will be used by the ANSI X12
customers, so I am guessing we need to understand and keep our eyes on

At the bottom of this email I am attaching the survey document that I
had received with this email.
The original email read:

Subject: Fwd: ebXML Compliant Registry - DRIve rollout

CIDX Architecture Committee participants - Per our discussion on today's
conference call, I am forwarding to you the information about the DRIve
initiative, which is DISA's ebXML-compliant registry.This DRive
prototype set up for viewing and comments by the interested public. 

  DRIve is out from behind the firewall ( See   )

We would like to invite our vertical industry affiliates to browse the
pages and provide feedback.
Attached is a questionnaire that you can return to:

Additional Comments:

  DRIve is set up to handle publicly-available specifications, which
applies more to vertical industry groups than the core EDI
specifications in X12. As it stands now, DRIve is a prototype, a working
model for future development.  OTA and IFX have graciously offered their
specifications as objects to register in DRive for testing and
demonstration purposes.  As we discovered, without a working model of
this kind, it is difficult to visualize how DRive can or should work. 
Hopefully, this prototype will bridge that gap.

     Some companies may not want a close identification with ebXML, and
we would like to make it clear that a listing in DRive does not imply
endorsement of ebXML.  Also, a listing in DRIve does not preclude
listings elsewhere.  DRIve is DISA's way, based on open standards, of
providing access to our affiliates' specifications.  DRIve can
cross-reference to other registries as needed. 
     Please let me know what questions you may have.  Many thanks for
your help.
