Subject: OASIS News--4 May 2005

4 May 2005

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

Members Approve ebXML RIM, ebXML RS, and OpenDocument as OASIS Standards

Three new OASIS Standards have been approved by the OASIS membership at-large. The ebXML Registry Information Model (RIM) v3.0 and
ebXML Registry Services and Protocols (RS) v3.0 offer a method for defining and managing interoperable registries and repositories.
OpenDocument provides an XML-based file format specification for office applications. Congratulations to the TC members who produced
these standards, and thanks to all those who participated in the review and balloting process.


OASIS Issues Calls for Participation for SDD and WS-RX 

Two new technical committees are being formed by Consortium members. Interested parties are encouraged to join these committees at
least 15 days prior to each group's first meeting.

The OASIS Solution Deployment Descriptor (SDD) TC will define XML schema to describe the characteristics of an installable unit (IU)
of software relevant for core aspects of its deployment, configuration, and maintenance. The TC's first meeting will be held by
phone, 1 June.

The OASIS Web Services Reliable Exchange (WS-RX) TC will define a protocol for reliable message exchanges between two Web services,
through continued development of the Web Services Reliable Messaging specification. The TC's first meeting will be held in Palo
Alto, California, USA, 23-24 June.

XTech Features OASIS Open Standards Day in Amsterdam 

Register now to attend the OASIS Open Standards Day, 24 May, at the XTech conference (formerly XML Europe) in Amsterdam. The
programme will feature presentations on the latest eGovernment projects as well as on XML for tax-related information. It will
provide updates on widely applicable specifications, such as WSBPEL, WSDM, WSRF and WSN. SAML 2.0 and its interaction with the
related profile adapters in XACML and WS-Security will also be explored, as will PLCS. A European Justice System's use of the ebXML
Messaging OASIS Standard will provide perspective on real-world deployment of standards. OASIS members receive $100 discount off
XTECH registration fees.
