ebXML Day at XML DevCon 2001 (New York City, April 9)

ebXML Day on April 9, 2001 in New York City will educate developers about
three new important specifications produced by the ebXML initiative. ebXML
is a partnership between the United Nations, the Organization for the
Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS), and over 100
member organizations. Its purpose is to develop specifications and
standards for a global eBusiness infrastructure.

ebXML Day includes three classes scheduled concurrently with XML DevCon
Spring 2001 at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel. The class schedule is:

2:00-3:00 pm ebXML Registry & Repository
3:00-4:00 pm B2B Integration with Electronic Trading Partner
4:00-5:00 pm ebXML Message Service

1. ebXML Message Service
Presented by: Dick Brooks, Group 8760

This session will provide an in-depth overview of the ebXML Message
Service. We will explore the details of the MIME multipart/related
packaging solution, the ebXML Header document and its relationship to
required behaviors of a compliant ebXML Message Service implementation. We
will also explore the business quality messaging characteristics of the
ebXML Message Service; reliable delivery and security.

2. ebXML Registry & Repository
Presented by: Farukh Najmi, Sun Microsystems

The ebXML Registry Specification defines a robust information model for
business registries as well as a specification of the interface and
behavior of ebXML compliant registries. This paper will introduce the
audience to the ebXML Registry specifications and share the experience
gained from implementing an ebXML Registry.

3. Business to Business Integration with Electronic Trading Partner
Presented by: Dr. Martin Sachs, T. J. Watson Research Center, IBM

In business-to-business interactions spanning electronic commerce,
supply-chain management, and other applications, the terms and conditions
describing the interactions between businesses can be expressed as a
contract known as a Trading Partner Agreement (TPA). The TPA includes both
business terms and conditions and the Information Technology
specifications for exchanging information electronically. An ebXML team is
defining a standardized electronic language or Collaboration Protocol
Agreement (CPA) that describes the IT specifications.

A single business can describe its IT capabilities in a Collaboration
Protocol Profile (CPP). Two parties' CPPs can be composed into a CPA that
expresses their common capabilities. From the CPA, configuration
information and code that embodies the IT specifications can be generated
automatically at each trading-partner's site, thus assuring that the two
parties are compatibly configured to do electronic business. The CPA
expresses the rules of interaction between the parties to the CPA while
maintaining complete independence of the internal processes at each party
from the other parties. It represents a long-running conversation that
comprises a single unit of business.

This talk summarizes the needs of inter-business electronic interactions.
Then it describes the basic principles of electronic CPPs and CPAs,
followed by a discussion of the proposed CPP-CPA language. A conceptual
run-time system called the business protocol framework (BPF) provides
various tools and run-time services that support CPA-based interaction and
integration with business applications. The talk concludes with a brief
description of composing a CPA following a party discovery process such as
might be used with information in an ebXML, UDDI, or similar repository.
UDDI Day at XML DevCon 2001 (New York City, April 10)

UDDI Day at XML DevCon Spring 2001 will educate developers about Universal
Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI). UDDI is a business
project by IBM, Microsoft, Ariba, and their partners. The highlight of the
program is a UDDI programming tutorial -- "what is it and how you talk

2:00-5:00 PM Introduction to UDDI and Available Development Tools

Presented by Mark Colan (IBM), Andrew Hately (IBM), Dan Rogers
David Turner (Microsoft)

This tutorial provides an overview of the Universal Description,
and Integration (UDDI) project, and will demonstrate the ability for
programmers to interact with the UDDI registry using available development
tools from Microsoft and IBM.

The Universal Description Discovery and Integration project is an open
industry effort focused on developing a standard approach to describing
locating Web Services over the internet. As the entire industry migrates
toward Web Services, UDDI represents a missing link in enabling businesses
and services to easily share information across the Web. Over 160 leading
organizations are actively participating in the effect.

In order to help develop solutions that take advantage of the UDDI
we have developed a set of utilities and sample code to make it easier for
developers to develop UDDI solutions. The UDDI SDKs are a great resource
help customers and partners start their first projects. In the second half
of this session, we will provide an overview of both IBM and Microsoft
development tools for UDDI integration.
