   At the first meeting of the OASIS Universal Business Language
   Technical Committee, hosted the week of 29 October 2001 by Sun
   Microsystems, TC members formed several subcommittees (SCs) to
   accomplish their goal of defining a common XML business
   document library.  In keeping with the completely open nature
   of the OASIS TC process, the work of each subcommittee can
   be monitored through its public mail list archive.

    - The OASIS UBL Library Content SC, chaired by Tim McGrath
      with Marion Royal as vice chair, has been chartered to
      rapidly develop standard XML business library content by
      taking an existing library as a starting point and modifying
      it to incorporate the best features of other existing
      business and core component libraries.

    - The OASIS UBL Context Methodology SC, chaired by Matt
      Gertner, has been chartered to develop a methodology and
      tools for applying context to the core library of generic
      business information entities (BIEs) in order to produce
      contextualized BIEs and to develop initial machine-readable
      descriptions of context rules in the service of helping the
      Library Content SC do its work.

    - The OASIS UBL Context Drivers SC, chaired by Sue Probert,
      will work on improvement and further development of the
      context drivers and their values.

    - The OASIS UBL Naming and Design Rules SC, chaired by Eve
      Maler, will recommend to the TC rules and guidelines for
      normative-form schema design, instance design, and markup
      naming and will be responsible for further maintenance of
      the design principles that were specified in the report of
      the UBL Group Planning Committee.

         NDRSC archive: http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl-ndrsc

    - The OASIS UBL Tools and Techniques SC, chaired by Arofan
      Gregory, will evaluate and recommend to the TC tools and
      techniques to be used in the development, quality assurance,
      documentation, maintenance, and revision of the UBL XML data
      formats, and will write and maintain guidelines reflecting
      these recommendations.

    - The OASIS UBL Liaison Subcommittee, chaired by Jon Bosak,
      will receive requests for input from SCs, negotiate review
      schedules with cooperating organizations, collect and
      organize formal input from cooperating organizations, convey
      input to the requesting SCs, and propose policies regarding
      the relationship of the UBL TC to other organizations for
      consideration by the TC.

   OASIS UBL SCs for Administration and Marketing were also
   formed, but no members have been appointed yet.

   UBL (Universal Business Language) is an open initiative to
   define a common XML library for business documents like
   purchase orders and invoices.  UBL will provide a set of XML
   building blocks and a framework that will enable trading
   partners to unambiguously identify and exchange business
   documents in specific contexts.

   UBL will unite and harmonize a number of currently existing XML
   and EDI business libraries.  The arrival of a standard set of
   XML business schemas will solve major interoperability problems
   for both vendors and users.  UBL is intended to complement the
   work of the UN/OASIS ebXML initiative and to jump-start the
   entry of small and medium-size businesses into the electronic

   UBL will be freely available to the public without licensing or
   other fees.

   OASIS member organizations represented on the OASIS UBL TC
   currently include Commerce One, HP, Oracle, SAP, Sun
   Microsystems, and VerticalNet.  The TC also includes a number
   of individual OASIS members.  Participation in the UBL TC and
   its subcommittees is open to all OASIS members; information on
   joining OASIS in posted on http://www.oasis-open.org/join.
