RE: OASIS/SAX - looking around
I can't speak for the ebXML repository effort but I can tell you that the ebXML Message Routing and Transport group is examining several models including: Specification Organization ------------- ------------ EDIINT AS2 IETF EDIINT AS1 IETF ICE W3c BQM BQM.org CommerceOne CommerceOne RosettaNet RosettaNet XML MEssaging IETF IOTP IETF Corba OMG MqSeries IBM BizTalk Biztalk.org (Microsoft) E5 AIAG JMS Sun We really are trying to determine the best solution to securely and reliably transport XML and non-XML business documents between parties using the Internet.

Subject: RE: OASIS/SAX - looking around To be honest, I am not exactly impressed with what OASIS has accomplished so far. OASIS just seems to be not very active in anything it does including its xml.org's schema repository effort. This is just the opposite of W3C which seems to do a little too much. It was luke warm on XML at the start and now it is just too hot on XML, churning out specs after specs, seemingly in random order and directions. What we need are smaller standard organizations, each with well-defined and focused charter. These organizations should do no more than approve or disapprove standard proposals, no matter who created them, according to the group's charter. If the group's charter is to promote I18N, then it should review proposals according that charter. To me, this approach would lead to far more coherent future than the way it is now, which is dependent on the latest visions of the powerful few. One thing I am sure of is that, if there were such organizations, they would have turned their thumbs down on at least one W3C recommendations. I don't care whether the shareholders of the standard manufacturers are well-intended. I don't care whether my friends works on the factory floor. We need organizations that protect the consumers from the manufacturers. Does OASIS fit this need? I don't think so. I never heard of OASIS opposing anything W3C or IETF did. Best, Don Park Docuverse
