Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement

The ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement (CPPA) OASIS Standard (ISO 15000-1) defines how trading partners engage in electronic business collaborations through the exchange of electronic messages. The specification is advanced by the OASIS ebXML CPPA Technical Committee, a group that remains open to new participation.

Collaboration Profiles are one of the key pieces in ebXML - enabling users to quickly configure their partner interactions and relationships - detailing the communications methods, end-points, partner IDs, security and reliability options.  Then in addition the profiles add the ability to define message transactions and their send/receive couplings so that ebMS services can validate message exchanges with partners.  Information from the partner profiles is also used in the ebXML messaging envelopes to validate and identify the exchange details.

You can find sample CPAs and XSLT scripts from the CPPA TC documents section. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
