Subject RE: [POLL] ebXML Reg./Rep. on Apache?
Date Mon, 29 Oct 2001 21:02:25 GMT
I would like to offer assistance in developing and stabilizing an Apache ebXML implementation.
 However, I am first interested in who has been involved to date and what other groups they
have been working with.  Also, how does the plan fit with the Axis plans or has thought even
been given to it?  I know of at least one other open source ebXML initiative that is close
to completion and is being based off of Axis.  If this software donation from Sun is intended
to be an isolated imlementation supported by one or two people, then it could clearly be detrimental
to the other not-as-well-known projects.
