English abstract:
The United Nationīs Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic
Business (UN/CEFACT) is an e-business standardization body.
It is known from its work on UN/EDIFACT and ebXML. One of its ongoing
work items is the UN/CEFACT modeling methodology (UMM) for
modeling global choreographies of B2B scenarios. The goal of UMM is
defining a shared business logic between business partners and fostering
reuse of standardized process building blocks. The latest UMM version
is defined as a UML 1.4 profile. In this paper we introduce the main
concepts of UMM to realize its vision. Furthermore, the paper elaborates
on the necessary UML meta model work-arounds we - as part of
the specificationīs editing team - took in order to accomplish the B2B
requirements. Then we propose a move towards UML 2 that eliminates
some of those workarounds. The paper is concluded with the introduction
of a UMM modeling tool that we implemented on top of a commercial
UML tool.
