Subject RE: [POLL] ebXML Reg./Rep. on Apache?
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2001 04:41:24 GMT


I would like to offer my assistance and support for the Apache
effort to bring about an open source implementation of ebXML
Registry. I am a contributor to this spec and I believe
having a freely downloadable source will help in the wider use
of ebXML Registry. Sun's contribution of their implementation
is a great start, and is much appreciated.

Thanks,
-Suresh

Jeff,

Todate the project has been worked on within Sun by myself and my team. I
have been an active contributor to the OASIS ebXML Registry specifications
since version 0.1. I have verbal commitment from at least 3 other members of
the OASIS ebXML Registry TC all of whom are key contributors to the
specifications.

As far as Axis plans and coordination the thinking is as follows. The OASIS
ebXML Registry RI will be implemented as a SOAP based web service. I am not
familiar enough about the state of Axis to say whether the implementation
would use Axis or Apache SOAP for Java at this point. I look for guidance
from the Axis community on that score.

I assume the open source ebXML Implementation you refer to is openebxml.org.
If so, they are working on an ebXML messaging Service implementation. I am
not aware of any open source implementations of the OASIS ebXML Registry at
this point.

This software donation from Sun is intended to be broadly supported by many
people from several companies. As mentioned earlier I have verbal commitment
from 3 individuals outside of Sun. We are working with the OASIS ebXML
Registry TC to get their blessings for making this implementation be the
Reference Implementation for the specifications, complete with conformance
tests.

Finally, your help on this project would be greatly appreciated. I will
contact you off-line.

Farrukh

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.
