Webswell Business Hub V3 released; more comprehensive B2B process automation

Webswell Inc. releases Webswell Business Hub 3 - B2B integration platform with ebXML - the premier open source solution for advanced document interchange.

Several enhancements to the overall versatility and flexibility have aimed at making it possible to interconnect virtually anyone to anyone, regardless of supported protocol or technology. The Business Hub implements ebXML, Web Services, AS2 and EDI standards.

Business Hub 3 now contains a dedicated Business Process Engine in order to allow building complex business orchestrations with multiple parties involved.

The key capabilities now available are:-

  • Support for EDI delivery standards

  • Better support of Web Services integration

  • Built-in Business Process engine (BPEL-based) for handling multi-party, multi-document automation.

  • New web-based (AJAX) monitoring portal that allows routing and management of messaging and business process executions.

Being transmitted through the Business Hub, the business document can be transformed, translated, validated or verified automatically which significantly reduces requirements for participants IT infrastructure.
