All,    (01)

This was forwarded from the latest Gilbane Report <www.gilbane.com> 
email that I received.    (02)

Since we have been considering the offer of their ebXML repository, I 
thought that it would be of interest to the forum.    (03)

Adobe Systems Incorporated announced that it has acquired the
technology assets of Yellow Dragon Software, a developer of XML
messaging and metadata management software. The acquisition will
deliver technology for Adobe's XML architecture which enables
businesses and governments to combine XML and Portable Document Format
(PDF). Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Yellow Dragon provides a
commercial, off-the-shelf ebXML (Electronic Business eXtensible Markup
Language) solution using an XML registry, as well as a messaging
product, for delivering XML messages between servers. By enabling
native support for ebXML transactions within the Adobe Intelligent
Document Platform and PDF, Adobe is making it faster and easier for
organizations to automate their external business processes. Adobe
plans to integrate this technology into its server products next year.
ebXML is an XML specification that provides a standard method to
exchange business messages, conduct trading relationships, communicate
data in common terms, and define and register business processes.
Adobe believes this acquisition will not have a material financial
impact on the company. www.yellowdragonsoft.com, www.adobe.com    (06)
