Hong Kong SAR, Peoples Republic of China - 11 May 2007 - Center for
E-Commerce Infrastructure Development (CECID), The University of Hong
Kong (HKU) is pleased to announce a new open source version of Hermes
Messaging Gateway v2.0 (H2O) will be released on 1 June 2007, to
replace the two current editions of Hermes (H2CE and H2EE). Thanks to
project funding from the HKSAR Government's Innovation & Technology
Commission, more features and functionality of Hermes are available as
open source to users and developers of business-to-business integration
and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
Besides supporting ebXML Messaging Service (ebMS) and Applicability
Specification 2 (AS2), H2O will provide additional tools and a full set
of documentation to make configuration, and administration even more
easily. The new release will include an installation wizard, web-based
GUI admin tool, message status query capabilities, and documentation of
an installation guide, configuration guide, admin tool user guide as
well as the plug-in development guide.
H2O and its source code will be released under http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html. Users and developers can get
community support through the mailing list
Completed the AS2 Interoperability Testing AS-1Q05 with 29 other
organized by U.S. leading testing company, Drummond Group Inc., Hermes
2 enables real-time communication through HTTP or HTTPS to transmit
data over the Internet. Besides, it provides security for the transport
payload through Secure Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME),
digital signatures and encryption, while reliability and
non-repudiation are achieved through the use of receipts.
The AS2 standard, commonly used in supply chains by large retailers,
manufacturers and suppliers, is often regarded as the “EDI over
Internet” standard. Hermes 2 facilitates large as well as small
enterprises to exchange EDI or other business-to-business data with
their partners and customers. It operates as a Java web application.
The ebXML Messaging Service (ebMS) and AS2 messaging capabilities are
facilitated by the corresponding plugins, which can be easily developed
by users through Hermes’ Simple Plugin Architecture specification. The
messaging operation requires a database with JDBC connectivity to keep
track of the messaging status.
