ebXML Messaging Protocol Binding for RegRep v1.0 approved as a Committee Specification

ebCore TC's latest specification ready for testing and implementation

OASIS is pleased to announce that ebXML Messaging Protocol Binding for RegRep Version 1.0 from the OASIS ebXML Core (ebCore) TC [1] has been approved as an OASIS Committee Specification.

Electronic Business using eXtensible Markup Language (ebXML) is a family of standards developed through a joint initiative of OASIS and the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT). Five of these ebXML standards, including Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement, have been approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as the ISO 15000 standard. ebXML provides an open, XML-based infrastructure that enables the global use of electronic business information in an interoperable, secure, and consistent manner by all trading partners.

The ebXML Messaging Protocol Binding for RegRep v1.0 specifies a messaging protocol binding for the Registry Services of the OASIS ebXML RegRep Version 4.0 OASIS Standard. This binding is compatible with both the versions 2.0 and 3.0 of ebMS as well as the AS4 profile and complements the existing protocol bindings specified in OASIS RegRep Version 4.0.

This Committee Specification is an OASIS deliverable, completed and approved by the TC and fully ready for testing and implementation.
