In Sun tutorial, it said that we could use web service to access ebXML to get product infomation. My question is, is it in real business or just still in concept? anybody has real experience in ebXML with java web service?

Thanks.

Not me.
However Sun has decided to standardize on UDDI instead of ebXML for J2EE web service registries, though conceptually JAXR should be capable of interfacing with an ebXML registry. Furthermore many vendors didn't see the point in JAXM as it seemed to duplicate JMS functionality; so it never was included in the J2EE specification either. So ebXML/JAXM adoption is entirely up to the vendor which makes ebXML/JAXM not fully portable. Also ebXML is fairly big and is comprised of numerous specifications. All this probably has at least partially contributed to the lack of in-depth adoption of ebXML despite the fact that it has been around for awhile. Then again there aren't that many UDDI registries either.
