OASIS ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this TC is to develop and recommend technology for the transport, routing and packaging of business transactions using standard Internet technologies. This work will foster consistency across specifications developed in other forums and carry forward the work started in the ebXML Transport, Routing and Packaging project team. Further information on the ebXML Initiative can be found at http://www.ebxml.org. The TC intends to complete its work by December 31, 2002 and will reconsider its charter at that time.

List of Deliverables

This Technical Committee will:

  • address maintenance issues that may arise in the implementation of ebXML Messaging Service Specification Version 1.0, including the development of minor releases of the Specification;
  • respond to requirements raised by committee members and by the joint OASIS -- UN/CEFACT Requirements and Technical Architecture Committees;
  • prepare Technical Reports, White Papers and other documents to further the consistent adoption of messaging service specifications;
  • proactively engage with related activities in external forums, especially the W3C Activities and Working Groups;
  • coordinate TC activities with other technical committees and work groups operating within OASIS and UN/CEFACT; and
  • develop future versions of the ebXML Messaging Service Specifications with consideration of related technologies adopted by other forums.

The ebXML Messaging Technical Committee will use the ebXML Messaging Specification Version 1.0 as the starting point for discussion at the first meeting.
