DISA DRIve: Data Interchange Standards Registry Initiative
The DISA Registry Initiative (DRIve) is a program to deploy the technology outlined in the ebXML specifications (v 2.0) for a standard online index of items needed by companies to do business in particular industries. DRIve provides such an index for the work of DISA-affiliated organizations.
An ebXML Messaging Service Handler (MSH) Deployment Case in Hong Kong
This document describes how two companies (a buyer and a seller of office supplies) have deployed Hermes, the ebXML Messaging Service Handler that is in compliance with the OASIS ebXML Message Service (ebMS) Specification V2. The deployment demonstrates the applicability of Transport, Routing & Packaging (TRP) of the ebXML infrastructure in B2B document exchange. In March 2002, the Center for E-Commerce Infrastructure Development (CECID) of the University of Hong Kong commenced an e-procurement pilot project using ebXML technology with two local industry partners. MTR Corporation is the major subway operator in Hong Kong; Saggio (Asia Pacific) is a vendor of office supplies with businesses in the Asian region. The new system has three purposes. First, it enables Saggio to send delivery notes, statements and invoices to MTRC electronically. Hence, costs related to paper document preparation, such as paper and administrative costs, are reduced. Furthermore, MTRC can store a copy of the data in its own database for other automation, planning and statistics activities. Second, the system automates some of the current manual reconciliation of invoice and statement records. Productivity will be increased. Third, with the use of Hermes, an ebXML Messaging Service Handler that is in compliance with the ebMS Specification V2, CECID demonstrates the applicability of Transport, Routing & Packaging (TRP) of the ebXML infrastructure in Business-to-Business (B2B) document exchange. As of August 2002, the new system is undergoing User Acceptance Test (UAT) and is expected to be in full operation by the end of September.
SAGE: Standards-Based Shareable Active Guideline Environment
The SAGE project seeks to create a standards-based technology infrastructure for computable (machine executable) clinical guidelines that can be shared and readily deployed within different clinical information system platforms. To help realize that vision, Apelon is developing clinical guideline registry software based on an ebXML Registry. Apelon is using its expertise in medical terminologies and associated server technology to facilitate indexing and retrieval of registered guidelines. http://www.sageproject.net
SRDC: Software Research and Development Center at Middle East Technical University Exploiting Web Service Semantics through ebXML Registries and Software Agents
In the future of Web Services, software agents will start using Web services rather than users to browse, discover, and compose services. Providing semantics gives software agents the capability to discover and compose Web services. This effort explicitly related service ontology classes with the services advertised in the Registry, enabling a software agent to dynamically query the Registry to select service instances that satisfy user requests. A key issue here is to facilitate the service discovery by integrating the service semantics with the discovery mechanism of the Registry. The ebXML classification hierarchy mechanisms of the Registry were used to relate service ontologies with services advertised. SRDC implemented an agent system where the agent had querying and reasoning behavior.
UK National Health Service NPfIT
The UK's National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT) is the world's largest civil IT project. A central component of the NHS Care Records Service is the Transactional Messaging Service (TMS) Spine using the ebXML Messaging Service OASIS Standard. It is likely to become one of the largest applications of this technical specification.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (CDC)
Public Health Information Network Messaging System (PHINMS)
CDC, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, operates PHINMS, with state and local health agencies, clinical facilities and medical labs across the U.S. PHINMS makes use of ebXML? Messaging Service and Collaboration Protocol Agreement specifications.
XML in Ontario: Government of Ontario
In its second phase, XML in Ontario (XiO) further evolves the architecture design and prototype of the key technologies of ebXML, while continuing to monitor changes in standards, tools, and user trends. The XiO team is concentrating on ebXML Registry and Repository. During this project phase, they reviewed tool sets, worked with ministry teams (ESDi) to set up a process to use common schemas and tool sets, and worked with other government entities to further the use of the standards and technology. Phase 3 is under investigation.
