About the Workshop

Produced by OASIS in conjunction with The UBL International Conference, ebXML 2008 is an exciting half-day event that will explore the state of the art in ebXML deployments, and give an overview of the current state of the OASIS ebXML Standards.

This event will:

  • provide an overview of the OASIS ebXML standards and an update of the latest (and upcoming) developments
  • explain the synergies between ebXML and UBL, and show that ebXML is the B2B infrastructure of choice for UBL projects
  • highlight case studies of end user adoption, including some of the largest messaging systems in the world
  • show an innovative use of ebXML to support tracking and tracing of food
  • discuss various ebXML projects in textile-clothing, tiles, agrofood and mechanical industry in Italy, and ebXML software developed in them
  • feature a demonstration of the new ebXML Messaging 3.0 standard, which delivers the long-awaited convergence of ebXML and Web Services and provides innovative features to support small and medium size organisations

And much more...

Who should attend?

  • End users involved in electronic exchange of business documents in a B2B, B2G or G2G context
  • People looking to learn how modern ebXML standards and technologies can support their requirements
  • Consultants, project managers, architects, standards experts that support these projects or advise decision makers
  • IT professionals involved in B2B integration projects or SOA projects (who are evaluating standards, technical framework and technologies to support their needs)

The event is of particular interest to users of UBL, and will show how UBL documents can be exchanged using the robust, reliable, secure, and proven ebXML standards.

ebXML Standards at OASIS

The first phase phase of the joint OASIS-UN/CEFACT ebXML project delivered an initial set of technical specifications in 2001. Within OASIS, work on ebXML continued and resulted in 2002 of version 2.0 specifications of the ebXML Messaging (ebMS), ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profiles and Agreements (CPP/A), and ebXML Registry, all of which have subsequently been endorsed by ISO as the first four parts of the ISO 15000 series in 2004. In December 2006 a version 2.0 of the ebXML Business Process was adopted as an OASIS Standard, and most recently a version 3.0 of the ebXML Messaging specification was adopted. A version 3.0 of the ebXML CPP/A standard is expected later this year.
