> Completion
> Boston, MA, USA, Geneva, Switzerland; February 27, 2001—Organizations
> from around the world came together in Vancouver, Canada to
> overwhelmingly approve the ebXML Technical Architecture Specification.
> Serving as a roadmap to ebXML, the Technical Architecture Specification
> provides the foundation for all other ebXML specifications. This
> announcement from the UN/CEFACT and OASIS marks the deliverable stage of
> ebXML, as the initiative nears its goal of delivering a complete suite
> of specifications in May 2001.
> “Interest in ebXML continues to build at a phenomenal rate,” said Robert
> S. Sutor, Ph.D., of IBM, vice chair of ebXML and member of the OASIS
> Board of Directors. “The ebXML Technical Architecture Specification
> gives implementers a clear understanding of the entire initiative and
> how the various ebXML specifications relate to one another.”
> The ebXML Technical Architecture Specification defines the
> relationships, interactions and basic functionality of ebXML
> specifications including those involving core components, business
> processes, registry & repository, messaging services, trading partner
> agreements and security.  In addition, the Technical Architecture
> Specification provides an ebXML use case scenario and conformance
> guidelines.
> “In developing this specification, we concentrated on translating
> business needs into a functional specification covering all aspects of
> the ebXML initiative,” said Anders Grangard of EDI France, leader of the
> ebXML Technical Architecture Project Team. “We were careful to balance
> our definition of the ebXML architecture with the ongoing work of the
> other project teams.”
> More than 350 participants from Asia, Australia, Europe and North
> America approved the ebXML Technical Architecture Specification. The
> group, which gathered in Vancouver to advance the initiative, remains
> open to all interested organizations and individuals.
> “We congratulate the ebXML Technical Architecture Project Team for being
> able to deliver this important ebXML component ahead of schedule,”
> stated Klaus-Dieter Naujok of Netfish Technologies, chair of ebXML and
> member of the UN/CEFACT Steering Group. “They met the dual challenge to
> remain consistent with the ebXML Requirements document and to develop
> the Technical Architecture in parallel with the ongoing work of the
> other ebXML project teams.”
> Developers and all interested parties are encouraged to review the ebXML
> Technical Architecture Specification on

> About ebXML
> ebXML (www.ebXML.org) is an International Initiative established by
> UN/CEFACT and OASIS in late 1999 with a mandate to undertake an 18-month
> program of work to research and identify the technical basis upon which
> the global implementation of XML (Extensible Markup Language) can be
> standardized. The goal of ebXML is to facilitate open trade between
> organizations regardless of size by enabling XML to be used in a
> consistent manner to exchange electronic business data.
> UN/CEFACT (www.uncefact.org) is the United Nations body whose mandate
> covers worldwide policy and technical development in the area of trade
> facilitation and electronic business. Headquartered in Geneva, it has
> developed and promoted many tools for the facilitation of global
> business processes including UN/EDIFACT, the international EDI standard.
> Its current work programme includes such topics as Simpl-edi and Object
> Oriented EDI and it strongly supports the development and implementation
> of open, interoperable global standards and specifications for
> electronic business.
> About OASIS
> OASIS (http://www.oasis-open.org) is the international, not-for-profit
> consortium that advances electronic business by promoting open,
