Dear ebxml-dev community,
I'm pleased to announce that the freebXML  family has gained a new member: the freebXML CC project, based on the ebXML Core Components specification  and enlarging the available choices for open-source ebXML  implementations.
freebXML CC is a set of tools developed to facilitate the work of domain experts managing data dictionaries. It includes a developer API as well as an end user GUI. Whereas the freebXML CC API gives the developer the chance to use Core Components without concerning about the underlaying implementation itself, the freebXML CC GUI shall allow domain experts with reasonable awareness of the Core Components specification to model their vocabularies and manage their data dictionaries using this methodology, with minimum effort.
freebXML CC uses the ebXML Registry  to store vocabulary data; more specifically, it uses the freebXML Registry  through JAXR API . The API maps Core Component concepts to ebXML Registry Information Model concepts through JAXR API, abstracting details about the Registry itself and providing simplified query and life cycle management features focused on Core Components / Vocabularies.
freebXML CC is one more contribution of Digital Artefacts Europe  to the ebXML community. The vision is to further develop freebXML CC API into a "Java API for Vocabulary Management", accompanied by a Vocabulary Management application. You are welcome to join the project if you share this vision!
