What is Electronic Business XML (ebXML)?
A. The ebXML initiative is sponsored by an international group established by the United Nations (UN/CEFACT) and OASIS to research, develop, and promote global standards for the implementation of XML to exchange electronic business data. The ebXML architecture begins with a business process and information model, maps the model to XML documents, and defines requirements for applications that process the documents and exchange them among trading partners. The ebXML group works to promote the creation of a global e-business market place through the exchange of XML documents and messages, regardless of geographic or political boundaries.
