If my understanding of your scenario is correct, here are some points to
(1) If the transmissions between trading partners are done using Web
Services (you did not explicitly state this), I recommend you look into
using SOAP over SMTP .
(2) Regarding the triggering of events:
or in any such cases where data transfer has to be done, want to do such
that on triggering that event
The triggering mechanism would be application-specific, so I won't be
able to offer anything particular for that aspect here.
(3) Regarding the confirmation and password:
On that side on opening that email, it will tell him for what this mail
was sent(as a popup or simple contents of the mail and asks for
permission of that person(confirmation dialogue box and for password if
That is application-specific as well.
(4) When an XML file is opened by either trading partner as an e-mail
attachment, the receiving system could create an HTML page that
incorporates the XML data and displays it in the browser for the
recipient to review, and confirm whether or not the information is
correct. If confirmed to be correct, the XML file could be parsed and
stored in the database.
Hope these random thoughts help.
