Subject: OASIS News 2 September 2005

2 September 2005

Welcome to OASIS News, a weekly update of announcements, accomplishments, and activities for the international standards consortium.

TCs Submit XML Catalogs and CAP for Consideration as OASIS Standards

OASIS members are asked to review two new candidates for OASIS Standards. XML Catalogs v1.1, developed by the OASIS Entity
Resolution TC, provides an XML specification for mapping resource references to known resources. The Common Alert Protocol (CAP)
v1.1, submitted by the OASIS Emergency Management TC, enables information exchange to advance incident preparedness and response to
emergency situations. The familiarization period for both specifications ends 15 Sept, and a call for voting will be issued 16 Sept.


Public Review of UBL 1.0 Small Business Subset Specification Begins

The OASIS Universal Business Language TC has submitted the UBL 1.0 Small Business Subset v1.0 Specification for public review. UBL
defines a common library of XML business documents. Comments must be received by 24 Oct.


Public Review of Emergency Management EDXL-DE Opens

All interested parties are encouraged to provide comments on the Emergency Management EDXL-DE v1.0 Specification, which enables
information exchange to advance incident preparedness and emergency response. Submitted for public review by the OASIS Emergency
Management TC, the package includes Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) Distribution Element v1.0. Comments must be received by
28 Oct.


Organizations Collaborate on WSDM OASIS InterOp 

Members of the OASIS Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) TC will host the WSDM OASIS InterOp at the Enterprise Management
World Conference in Bethesda, MD, USA on 14 Sept. DataPower, IBM, HP, Hitachi, and TIBCO will demonstrate how the WSDM OASIS
Standard allows management applications to be built using Web services, permitting resources to be controlled by many managers
through a single interface. Employing a weather station scenario, the WSDM OASIS InterOp will demonstrate how management
applications can go beyond centralized monitoring in an agent-based environment to achieve truly distributed, collaborative
management in a world composed of both smart and simple resources.


Open Standards and Open Source: Ovum Keynotes Adoption Forum

At the upcoming OASIS Adoption Forum in London, Ovum analyst, Bola Rotibi will elaborate on how 'open standards' and 'open source'

interoperability. The OASIS Adoption Forum, to be held 17 Oct, will be chaired by the CEO of the United Kingdom's Local eGovernment
Standards Body, John Borras. Register by 9 Sept to receive the 50 USD early-bird discount.
