Subject: OASIS member news: XMLGlobal & UDDI

Press Release

XMLGlobal Technologies Inc. Joins the UDDI e-Commerce Standards Initiative

Vancouver, B.C., September 12th,  2000 -  XMLGlobal Technologies,
(www.xmlglobal.com), a provider of XML based e-business software solutions,
today announced it has joined the UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and
Integration) project. The UDDI initiative is being developed through a
collaboration of Ariba (Nasdaq: ARBA), IBM and Microsoft. As a member of the
UDDI team XMLGlobal Technologies will participate in the development of a
standard registry of services to help companies rapidly and efficiently
extend their B2B marketplaces.

UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration) is a web services
registry and standard created to lower the barriers to entry and costs of
doing business on the web. As businesses migrate directly to the internet
they will register their various web-based applications such as procurement,
supply chain and marketplace as services in UDDI, making it simpler for
other businesses to discover and integrate with them. This will allow the
many SMEs (small to medium enterprise) who are migrating to the internet, a
standard way of being discovered and integrated into net marketplaces and
online applications. At the same time the UDDI project will provide a forum
for large corporations to improve their e-business initiatives with the
rapidly growing number of online suppliers and customers.

“As a recognized provider of XML based e-business software solutions
XMLGlobal Technologies will make significant contributions to the UDDI
project,” said Peter Shandro, CEO of XMLGlobal Technologies. “The
fundamental conceptual thinking behind our flagship products, www.goxml.com
™, the world’s premier context based XML search system, and ExpressXCHG™, a
patented native XML transformation software solution, has been a commitment
to break down the technology and cost barriers preventing many companies
from migrating to the internet. With the UDDI initiative and XMLGlobal’s
proven technology we believe we have a powerful end to end solution for the
many companies looking to make the B2B move and participate in the fastest
growing segment of the e-business market today.”

In addition to its support for UDDI, XMLGlobal Technologies is actively
involved with ebXML (the Electronic Business XML Initiative -
www.ebxml.org), a worldwide project to standardize the exchange of
electronic business data. ebXML is sponsored by the UN/CEFACT and OASIS
(Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) and
is currently supported by hundreds of industry consortia, standards bodies
and corporations from around the globe. Members of the Global Commerce
Initiative (GCI) recently announced plans to use ebXML as the backbone of
their new data exchange standard for business-to-business trade in the
consumer goods industry. GCI members include 40 major manufacturers and
retailers as well as eight trade associations, which in total represent
850,000 companies around the world.
