Subject: [announce] OASIS Member News: XML Global Signs First Phase Contractwith Canadian Federal Government

XML Global Signs First Phase Contract with Canadian Federal Government

Vancouver, BC, November 7th, 2001 - XML Global Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB:
XMLG), an XML middleware company, has signed an agreement with the Canadian
federal government to provide software and related consulting services. This
first phase contract, of an extendable program, is worth up to $100,000. The
agreement calls for XML Global's GoXML(tm) Transform Central to be the
foundation for a Canadian federal government implementation of ebXML
interoperability within a Microsoft BizTalk(tm) environment. The Canadian
Government's E-Forms Domain Architecture Team (EDAT) is extending the
capabilities of its Microsoft based supply-chain project that currently
supports several XML-based transaction flows.

"This is an important contract for XML Global. The key to continued growth
of global e-business will be complete system interoperability for which
ebXML has delivered a blueprint," said Peter Shandro, CEO of XML Global. "By
implementing an ebXML capable registry and message handling services within
a Microsoft BizTalk(tm) environment", continued Shandro, "XML Global is
taking the lead in laying the foundations for multiple system

GoXML(tm) Transform Central is an ebXML enabled e-business solution. This
solution permits an enterprise to pass data between traditional data formats
such as EDI and relational databases and new formats like XML. This then
allows e-businesses to create new partnerships with formerly incompatible
trading partners. Most importantly, however, GoXML(tm) Transform Central
will eliminate one of the last major performance bottlenecks in information
exchange with an infrastructure to rapidly and cost-effectively establish
interoperable Web-based trading partner relationships.

Under the terms of the contract, XML Global will also provide the technical
and product support needed to demonstrate the required interoperability. The
system will be installed in both Vancouver and Ottawa. By successfully
implementing an ebXML registry within the BizTalk(tm) server environment,
XML Global and EDAT aim to open up the proprietary BizTalk(tm) platform to
interchanges based on the new ebXML standards.
