OASIS expands with China Office 

The Changfeng Open Standards Platform Software Alliance has been selected to
host the new OASIS China Office in Beijing. The OASIS China Office will focus
on increased opportunities for new participation and enhanced services for
existing members in China. A Chinese version of the OASIS web site and
newsletter has been introduced in support of this outreach effort.


PKI transitions to IDtrust Member Section 

The OASIS PKI Member Section has expanded its scope to encompass additional
standards-based identity and trusted infrastructure technologies, policies, and
practices. Under the new name, OASIS Identity and Trusted Infrastructure
(IDtrust) Member Section, the group will oversee the work of the OASIS
Enterprise Key Management Infrastructure (EKMI) and PKI Adoption Committees.
Other TCs are invited to explore the advantages of working within this Member
Section, and the group is open to ideas for forming new Committees. Nominations
for the OASIS IDtrust Member Section Steering Committee will remain open until
29 March. Elections will be held 2-9 April. 

Primeton becomes newest OASIS Foundational Sponsor

OASIS welcomes Primeton, a provider of component-oriented software development
and operations platforms, as its newest Foundational Sponsor. Major banks,
telecom operators and equipment suppliers, and government agencies in China and
around the world use Primeton products to gain agility in rapidly changing
business and regulatory environments. Primeton helps businesses build SOA
solutions that support SCA/SDO specifications. Primeton joins other OASIS
Foundational Sponsors, BEA Systems, EDS, IBM, SAP, and Sun Microsystems. OASIS
gratefully acknowledges the contributions of these major supporters and
applauds their commitment to advancing open standards.


Members form OASIS ebXML Registry REST Subcommittee 

David Webber will chair a new sub-committee that will produce a specification
document to allow implementers to develop a complimentary, optional, REST-based
interface for the ebXML Registry OASIS Standard. This work will not replace the
existing interface, but will augment the access methods that the ebXML Registry
can support based on the current RIM and APIs.


TC provides WS-BPEL educational opportunities

The OASIS Symposium will feature the "WS-BPEL Workshop" on Wednesday, 18 April,
in San Diego. Registration is free to Symposium attendees and also available
separately. Recorded versions of two recent webinars, "WS-BPEL Technical
Overview for Developers and Architects" and "The Business Value of WS-BPEL for
Business Analysts and Managers" are now available online. 


OASIS Symposium to feature OpenDocument Workshop

The members of the OASIS ODF Adoption Committee will be hosting a special half
day Symposium workshop dedicated to topics important to understanding the ODF
standard and its technology on Wednesday, 18 April, in San Diego. Presentations
will cover OpenDocument accessibility, programmability, and interoperability


McGrath promoted to Senior Director

In recognition of his increased responsibility and demonstrated corporate
leadership, Scott McGrath as been promoted to the role of Senior Director of
