AS4 Profile of ebMS V3 Version 1.0 Committee Draft opne for comment

The OASIS ebXML Messaging Services TC has recently approved the AS4 Profile of ebMS V3 Version 1.0 specifications as Committee Drafts and approved them for public review.

The draft is an OASIS ebXML Messaging Services 3.0 Conformance Profile that provides guidance for a standardized methodology for the secure and document-agnostic exchange of B2B payloads using Web services. By constraining the ebMS v3.0 specification and the underlying WS-* specifications for messaging packaging, transport, security, and business non-repudiation, the profile focuses on providing an entry-level on-ramp for Web services B2B messaging. 

The end goal of this profile development is to replicate and strategically extend the existing functional requirements currently satisfied by RFC4130 (AS2) by mapping those requirements onto the Web services platform.

In summary the AS4 Profile provides the marketplace an entry-level on-ramp to begin utilizing their internal SOA platforms for external B2B messaging while taking on some of the more complicated aspects of Web services.

The public review starts today, 25 April 2009, and ends 24 June 2009.  This is an open invitation to comment. 

Comments may be submitted to the TC by any person through the use of the OASIS TC Comment Facility which can be located via the button marked "Send A Comment" at the top of that page, or directly at:
