The Global Justice Reference Architecture (JRA) ebXML Messaging Service Interaction Profile Version 1.0

The purpose of this document is to establish a SERVICE INTERACTION PROFILE (SIP) based on the ebXML family of technology standards.

A Service Interaction Profile is a concept identified in the Global Justice Reference Architecture ([JRA2]). This concept defines an approach to meeting the basic requirements necessary for interaction between SERVICE CONSUMERS and SERVICES. The approach utilizes a cohesive or natural grouping of technologies, standards, or techniques in meeting those basic interaction requirements. A profile establishes a basis for interoperability between service consumer systems and services that agree to utilize that profile for interaction. A Service Interaction Profile guides the definition of SERVICE INTERFACES.

In an SOA environment, every service interface shared between two or more information systems should conform to exactly one Service Interaction Profile. Service consumers who interact with an interface should likewise conform to that interface’s profile. The profile discussed in this document is based on the ebXML family of technology standards, defined as follows:

  • OASIS ebXML Messaging Services, Version 3.0: Part 1, Core Features, 2007 [ebMS3]
  • OASIS ebXML ―Conformance Profiles Gateway RX V3 or RX V2/3 for e-Business and e-Government applications [ebMS3-PROFILES]
  • OASIS ebXML Business Process Specification Schema v2.0.4 [ebBP]
  • OASIS ebXML Collaboration-Protocol Profile and Agreement Specification Version 2.0 [ebCPPA v2]
  • The Web Services Interoperability Organization (WS-I) Basic Profile, Version 1.1, dated April 10, 2006 (noted in this document as [WS-I BP]), ebXML Messaging Services v3 is conformant with Section 3 MESSAGES and Section 6 SECURITY and all standards that those sections reference. Section 4 of WS-I Basic Profile does NOT APPLY to ebXML. ebXML does not specify WSDL for service descriptions and service bindings.
  • The WS-I Attachments Profile ([WS-I AP]), Version 1.0, and all standards that it references
  • The WS-I Basic Security Profile Version 1.0 (dated March 30, 2007, 37 noted in this document as [WS-I BSP]), all current Token Profiles, and all standards that they reference. Focus Areas: BPEL | DITA | ebXML | IDtrust | OpenDocument | SAML | UBL | UDDI
