Sponsored by the UN/CEFACT and OASIS, ebXML consists of a suite of specifications designed to facilitate global participation in the electronic commerce marketplace. The ebXML Message Service Specification facilitates the reliable and secure exchange of electronic business documents within an XML framework.
