Subject: ebXML JC input to TAB
Karl, The ebXML JC would like to submit the following input to the OASIS Technical Advisory Board. Could you please submit it on our behalf? Regards, Colleen (1) We feel there is a need for an OASIS-wide way to implement shema versioning and documentation across OASIS approved schemas. More generally, specifications should include a formal representation of their version number, e.g. using a common XML document format. All this would make it easier to obtain, query, and process the version number of an implementation. (2) We also feel there is a need for a common way to represent compatibility links to other specs. While the ebXML Joint Technical Liaison Team is developing an ebXML standards compatibility matrix, a more formal way to code a compatibility matrix (for integration as well as interoperability) is required across OASIS, ideally a model that could be processed by a tool and well understood across specifications.
