Sterling Commerce Helps Propel B2B Internet Commerce Standards

Monday 12 January 2004 16:47 CET | News

Sterling Commerce has joined a handful of industry leaders to achieve ebXML Messaging Service Interoperability & Conformance Validation.

The completion of this validation represents another important step in the adoption of open, global standards to facilitate B2B Internet commerce across the supply chain. Sponsored by eBusinessReady, an industry-neutral software compliance and interoperability testing program under joint partnership of the Uniform Code Council (UCC) and Drummond Group (DGI), the testing ensures the availability of multiple, interoperable vendor solutions for subsequent deployment. This is the third round of interoperability testing for the OASIS ebXML Messaging Service (ebMS) specification version 2. A message transport protocol, ebMS is focused on B2B messaging with quality of service features such as reliable messaging and security added to file transfer protocols such as HTTP and SMTP. It is used to securely and reliably send XML, binary data, X12, EDIFACT or any other data types between two organizations over the Internet. Sterling Commerce has been involved with ebXML development since initial stages, through its participation in successful proof-of-concept testing for key automated registry and messaging specifications. Brian Gibb, Sterling Commerce director of Architecture Development, was a former vice chair of the ebXML Messaging Services Technical Committee. Other OASIS ebXML technical committees the company serves on include Implementation, Interoperability and Conformance; Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement; and Registry.
