Subject [POLL] ebXML Reg./Rep. on Apache?
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2001 01:27:58 GMT
Background:

ebXML (electronic business XML) is an initiative sponsored by OASIS and 
UN/CEFACT to create "a modular suite of specifications that enables enterprises 
of any size and in any geographical location to conduct business over the 
Internet."

One of the specifications in the ebXML suite deals with XML registries and 
repositories: "The OASIS ebXML Registry TC develops specifications to achieve 
interoperable registries and repositories, with an interface that enables 
submission, query and retrieval on the contents of the registry and repository."

Details can be found at:
http://www.ebxml.org/
http://www.ebxml.org/specs/index.htm#technical_specifications
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/regrep/

As part of our work on the ebXML initiative, Sun Microsystems Inc. has developed 
a JavaTM based implementation of the registry and repository specification that 
we have shown on various occasions such as trade show demos.

We have received numerous inquiries from many different parts of the developer 
community expressing interest in being able to work on this implementation to 
produce a fully specification compliant implementation.

Sun has determined and given approval for making this implementation available 
to an open source community. Consequently, we would like to submit this proposal 
to the members of the Apache XML project for consideration of accepting this 
donation as a sub-project.

Thank you very much for your attention to and consideration for this proposal.

We look foward to your questions, comments, or concerns.

Sincerely yours,


Peter Kacandes
