Subject: RE: [ubl] Approach to reporting scemantic errors on an invoice. Any advice?

Depends whether you want:
1	A process independent acknowledgement signal that is non-repudiable.
2	An acknowledgement that contains business information specific to
the process in addition to the fact that the invoice was received and

For the first case, you need a transaction protocol signal such as a signed
receipt acknowledgement and acceptance acknowledgement as defined in the
ebXML BPSS specification.  For the second case you need a specific "invoice
response document".  

To my mind, and invoice falls into what might be called a "notification"
transaction pattern where there is NO response business document BUT there
IS a requirement for non-repudiable confirmation of receipt.  That means
option 1.  So you should be looking to something like the BPSS specification
and planning implementation of a compliant "Business Service Interface".

Subject: [ubl] Approach to reporting scemantic errors on an invoice. Any

Dear TC,

As you may know - we have implemented the UBL invoice based on 0p7 in the
public sector. More than one million invoices has been exchanged since
February 1th. The technical infrastructure is based on a VANS-network (5
operators). The addressing mechanism is using EAN-location numbers. 

The VANS network operates with a primitive "Acknowledgment Message". It is
similar to the functionality of ebMS "AckRequested" and "Acknowledgment"
between message handlers. We will now implement most of ebMS in the VANS

My problem is that we lack a mechanism to report scemantic errors and other
kinds of rejects to the invoice. It seems like ebMS is not suitable and
should not be used for "business-level acknowledgments". We need an
InvoiceResponse type message. Any advice to what path we should follow?

Best regards
