The ebXML group's charter was to research, develop, and promote global standards goals, based on XML to exchange business data electronically and by doing so to improve the efficiency and lower the cost of doing business worldwide.
Covinst will use ebXML a global standard for business documents for the so-called "message transport" layer.
The ebXML guidelines are designed to help companies put electronic documents into a common format that can be understood by applications on both sides of a B2B transaction, even if different vendors make the applications.
The documents and messages exchanged online would be represented in the ebXML language.
The ebXML effort came to a successful conclusion at the group's May 2001 meeting in Vienna, Austria.
AS4 provides an on-ramp for using Web services as a transport to exchange B2B messages," said Makesh Rao of Cisco Systems, co-chair of the OASIS ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee.
We need to give special attention to ebXML in order to implement process-driven e-business service integrations.
The ebXML Messaging profile specifically focuses on document transfer between two or more parties, and is intended to standardize the way B2B transactions are transmitted in any size enterprise.
Developed under the auspices of the United Nations (UN/CEFACT) and the standards organization OASIS, the ebXML architecture is expected to EDI-enable small and mid-sized businesses as well as large, minimize the cost of configuring and maintaining B2B communications, and provide an open platform to simplify and promote the conduct of global electronic business.
ebMS is designed to be used either with or without any of the other ebXML standards, including ebXML Business Process Specification Schema (BPSS) 2.
Approved OASIS Standards include AVDL, BCM, CAP, DITA, DocBook, DSML, ebBP, ebXML CPPA, ebXML Messaging, ebXML Registry, EDXL-DE, EML, OpenDocument, SAML, SOA-RM, SPML, UBL, UDDI, WSDM, WS-Notification, WS-Reliability, WSRF, WSRP, WS-Security, XACML, XCBF, and XML Catalogs.
