A standard is a framework of specifications that has been approved by a recognized standards organization (de jure standard), is accepted as a de facto standard by the industry or belongs to the open standards (Hawkins, Mansell, & Skea, 1995). According to Rotem, Olken, and Shear (2001), there are two types of communication standards encountered in the e-business: infrastructure type standards and interaction type standards. Infrastructure type standards such as TCP/IP are important for almost any application that uses the Internet and are not the focus of this chapter. Interaction type standards address communication content and interfaces between e-business systems with the goals of facilitating system interoperability and process integration. These standards cover issues such as data dictionaries, message structure, and remote object invocation.
