This part of the EIDX web site is
undergoing a lengthy development stage, so not everything is complete. We are presenting what's done so
far for because even in it's in-process state, there is valuable information to share.
We'd like to know if you like the concept of "Clickable
where you can choose a business process area, drill down to business models in that
business process area, and from models get to information such as where the model fits in
context with other models, supporting information, and information about business
documents exchanged. From the business documents information, you can drill down to
individual message guidelines.
Some content is for the business
person and some is highly technical. We are in the process of adding
information to pages to state who the intended audience is.
Click on hyperlinks and images to drill down to next level of detail or to
related models and documents.
- Hover over images, and you will
see when a link to more detail or related content exists. Click on the
image to go see that information.
- Some hyperlinks will open new
windows, so that you can easily go back to the page that you were at before
Scenarios are the most "complete" for
purposes of evaluating what we are doing with this web site.
The Pre-Order (Quote) models represent what we will do
with existing models that have not yet been recast.

Harmonization of EIDX and
The models that are present here are all EIDX models. The plan is to
work on harmonizing the EIDX models with those of CompTIA ECSB, EDIFICE and
We'll look at the "traditional" EIDX representation and the
representation used by others, and come up with a representation that uses the best features of both.
Some models are in the process of being re-cast
into UML representation (activity diagrams). The modified "traditional"
EIDX representation will be retained, since it is a useful way to present eBusiness
exchanges to business folks. The UML activity diagrams are the next level of detail,
and should be useful to implementors.
Please note the following:
- Not all existing EIDX models are present.
- Not all models have navigation bars and links
built in yet.
- Not all links are functional.
- The recast models have not undergone membership
ratification (ballot and approval); they are in the development stage.
- Downloadable documents have not yet been updated
to reflect changes made during the models recast. The downloadable documents are the
published (balloted and approved) versions.
