Subject: Re: [ebxml-dev] ebXML DTDs - UBL Update

As Chair of the UBL Library Content subcommittee I guess I can follow up 
on Farrukh's response.

For the past 12 months we have been developing a XML Vocabulary based on 
the emerging work of the CEFACT (nee ebXML) Core Components Technical 
Specification.  We assume that this will provide the most appropriate 
ebXML payloads in terms of interoperability (although of course, any 
payload can be used within the ebXML infrastructure just as UBL can be 
used outside the ebXML infrastructure).

With respect to where UBL is at today, we have just completed a major 
review cycle of our 0.65 release and are working to produce version 0.70 
for review on Dec 2nd. 2002.  This includes a suite of document 
definitions (XML Schema) for basic procurement functionality (Order, 
Order Change, Order Response, Despatch Advice, Receipt Advice and 
Invoice), conforming to the CEFACT Core Component Specifications v1.85. 
 In addition the UBL Library is a library of re-usable types which can 
be used to assemble document schemas to suit other contexts of use.

This will be the first release that we are encouraging commercial users 
to use for trial implementations.  We would welcome groups like GXS to 
participate with us on this.  UBL is an open standard under the auspices 
of OASIS and as such we rely heavily on practical experience to 
strengthen the quality of our work.  Please contact me directly or sign 
up under our web portal http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/ for 
more details.
