Subject: [ubl-comment] [Fwd: UBL TC comments for eBTWG Core ComponentsTechnical Specification v1.8 closing May 4th 2002]

Please find attached the formal submission made to the eBTWG CCTS.  I believe the editing team (Lisa, Bill and myself) managed to capture the essential points of our recent debates and provide a realistic step forward for the CC work..

On that point, I would like to acknowledge the heroic efforts of Bill Burcham in integrating these ideas into a cohesive view - he can take all the credits, i will take all the blame.

Subject: UBL TC comments for eBTWG Core Components Technical Specification v1.8 closing May 4th 2002
Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="------------000301030408060902010208"

The OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) Technical Committee are 
pleased to be able to contribute to the work of the eBTWG Core Component 
Technical Specification (CCTS). Our formal response in attached as the 
document ubl-cctsspreadsheet-0p1.pdf .

The UBL group believe that, whilst the current CCTS provides a strong 
basis for good semantic modeling and definition of Core Components and 
Basic Information Entities, some modifications and clarifications would 
make it even better. Our comments are heavily based on our initial 
experience at applying the CCTS to the development of the UBL library of 

Some of these modifications may appear significant, but we feel it 
necessary to raise these matters sooner rather than later, whilst the 
implementations of ebXML libraries (such as UBL) are still under 

Having said that, we are mindful of the need for the CCTS work to mature 
and move forward. We do not want to detract from the team's momentum an
hope that you will consider many of these proposals as simplifications 
rather than complications to your work.

This submission is designed to be read in conjunction with the 
accompanying document entitled "Feedback from OASIS UBL TC to Draft Core 
Components Specification 1.8"[ubl-cctscomments-5p2.pdf]. This provides 
further information, examples, diagrams and discussion on the background 
to our recommendations.

Questions regarding these comments can be addressed (in the first 
instance) to the UBL CCTS Comments Editing Team, care of Tim McGrath
