As for the use of CoreComponents, OAGIS 8.1 Beta which is also available
for public review from the www.openapplications.org site, includes full support
for CCTS 1.90.
I hope this helps to specifically answer your questions.

Subject: RE: [ebXML-dev] UBL versus OAGI
Thanks for all the info....but maybe I didn't
pose my question as specifically as
I should have.
How much overlap in
payload documents is there between UBL and OAG
BOD's? Let's leave off
the question of what fine-grained components these
documents are built from
(CC's), or the political structures of the organizations,
since my interest
is regarding the actual business documents themselves.
I know that OAG
provides XML schema definitions (BODs) for documents like
ASN's, Invoices and more.
Does UBL provide similar document
schemas? And if so, how much overlap
is there in the offerings?
If there is an overlap, how compatible would a UBL
PO be with an OAG PO
BOD? If there is a significant overlap, it raises the
question of why
we need two document standards?
Or has UBL delivered only CC's which are
the fine-grained building blocks that
can (should) be used to create complete
......Andrzej (without enough
time to go an research UBL deliverables)

Both OAGIS XML and UBL will be contributing their core component work to
UN/CEFACT. Both are built by not-for-profit consortiums with open
processes and Royalty-Free IP Policies.
