OASIS Standard ballot on ebXML Messaging opens 16 Sept

The OASIS ebXML Messaging Services TC has submitted version 3.0 of its ebXML
Messaging Services specification (Part 1, Core Features) to be considered as an
OASIS Standard. ebXML Messaging defines the transport, routing and packaging of
e-business transactions. On 16 Sept, a Call for Vote on ebXML Messaging 3.0
will be issued to all OASIS member organizations. Members who wish to discuss
this ballot may do so through member-discuss@lists.oasis-open.org.


Public review begins for Production Planning and Scheduling (PPS) 1.0

The OASIS PPS TC has approved version 1.0 of PPS as a Committee Draft and
submitted it for public review. Comprised of three parts, PPS identifies core
elements for composing XML documents for planning and scheduling in
manufacturing industries. It also specifies transaction messages and profiles
for each industrial context. The review ends 21 Oct.


TC forms OASIS DITA Help Subcommittee  	
New work has begun to develop a top-level design for authoring of Help systems
and user assistance content for implementation using DITA. An approved OASIS
Standard for document creation and management, DITA builds content reuse into
the authoring process. The OASIS DITA Help Subcommittee aims to make
recommendations on the integration of DITA-authored Help systems and software
applications using context-sensitivity. The group will also establish best
practice guidelines. The subcommittee, chaired by Anthony Self, welcomes new
participation. Those involved in tool development with expertise in Help
systems are especially encouraged to contribute to this effort.


Registration opens for free IDtrust workshop in Barcelona
The OASIS IDtrust Member Section is hosting a free workshop in conjunction with
the Burton Group's Catalyst conference in Barcelona, Spain on 22 Oct.
Presentations will focus on the critical need for strong identity management
initiatives, protocols, and standards supported by scalable, data-protection
and integrity services. Speakers will include Abbie Barbir of Nortel, John Sabo
of CA, Eve Maler of Sun Microsystems, Anthony Nadalin of IBM, Juan Carlos
Cruellas of CATCert-Agencia Catalana de Certificacio, and others.


London Forum will feature Election Markup Language (EML) InterOp

This year's Open Standards Forum, hosted by OASIS and the Butler Group, will
feature an EML interoperability demonstration by members of the OASIS Election
& Voter Services TC. Used in both public and private organisations, the EML
OASIS Standard extends to all aspects of the election process and has been
adopted by hardware, software,
and service providers. Attendees of the Open Standards Forum will participate
in a mock election, which will show how EML can be used in a multi-channel
e-voting ballot involving several suppliers.


Open CSA posts program for free SOA educational event in California

On 18 Sept, the OASIS Open Composite Services Architecture (Open CSA) Member
Section will sponsor a full day of public educational sessions on the Service
Component Architecture (SCA) at the SAP facility in Palo Alto, California. SCA
simplifies SOA application development by defining a flexible model for
creating business solutions using service components. The educational sessions
are free and open to the public; however, registration is required.
