Today, IBM and Ford Motor Company jointly released (under royalty free terms) the second revision of the profile formerly known as the IBM Basic B2B Profile. We had received lots of feedback from both our customers and industry analysts that the name was somewhat misleading, because the profile had relevance beyond b2b exchanges.
The renamed profile is now called the Reliable Asynchronous Messaging Profile, or RAMP for short.
I've written an article that describes the profile and outlines the changes made.
As I have previously noted, we invite the Web services community to participate in the development of the profile by joining the discussion group. All that's necessary to do so is to sign the feedback agreement.
Update: Tom has more on his blog.
