ebXML is a very wide ranging specification supported by OASIS, UN/CEFACT and SUN. It uses a superset of SOAP as a message transport mechanism. They had originally thought that SOAP would not be adequate, but then the SOAP developers added the SOAP with attachements API.
So really it is not an either/or situation.
