Subject: [ubl-comment] Second UBL review cycle begins

The second public review of the UBL library begins today with the
release by the OASIS UBL Library Content Subcommittee
(http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lcsc/) of the schema,
data model, and supporting documentation for UBL Order, UBL Order
Response, and subsidiary components of the UBL library.  Review of
these materials is underway in data standards organizations that
have appointed liaisons to the OASIS UBL Liaison Subcommittee
(http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lsc/).  The general
public is hereby invited to submit reviews of this work as well.
The review period ends 25 September 2002.

   Developers of software for electronic commerce are invited to
   experiment with the XML library schema provided in the review
   package.  The schema is also suitable for constructing payloads
   to be used in testing business-quality messaging frameworks
   such as ebXML Messaging.

   Developers should note that this review package represents
   work in progress.  There are several issues (listed in the
   release notes) that remain unresolved within the UBL team.
   Indeed, your comments will provide valuable input into these
   discussions.  Therefore, the XML Schema in this package is
   subject to change and should not be used as the basis for
   commercial software during the current review cycle.

   Position papers relating to these discussions can be found on
   the UBL Naming and Design Rules site at


   and the UBL Library Content web site at



   Comments received on or before 25 September 2002 will be
   processed during the meeting of the UBL Technical Committee 1-4
   October 2002 in Burlington, Massachusetts.  Information about
   that meeting can be found at


   Persons wishing to join the OASIS UBL TC or to attend the
   meeting in Burlington should contact the UBL TC chair, Jon
   Bosak <jon.bosak@sun.com>.

   The results of this review cycle will be incorporated into a
   stable schema suitable for implementation following the meeting
   of the UBL Technical Committee scheduled for 18-22 November
   2002 in Menlo Park, California.

   Additional example instances of documents conforming to the
   schema in the current review package are expected to appear
   within a week or two of this announcement.  Please subscribe to
   the ubl-comment list to receive further announcements.
