In this paper, we describe how ebIOP (an ebXML compliant B2B interoperability platform) manages the business lifecycle by providing an example scenario. ebIOP provides a common storage for ebIOP components (ebXML applications). ebIOP defines an ebIOP component to be a software implementation of one or more ebXML specifications which is a solution of an e-commerce pattern (description of an e-commerce problem). ebIOP contains a server that listens to a port over the TCP/IP protocol for client requests and provides one or more ebIOP components to interact with the partners of the company.
