Subject: Re: [ubl-dev] UBL and CCTS: Improvement interoperability ?

I found a very good document that helps in understanding the CCTS in relation to OAGIS, UBL and other standards.        

Thanks, in fact is becomes quite simple to understand if you know that the Core Data Types and Business Data Types are standardized and taken over by all standards that have adopted the CCTS.
Kind regards,

My understanding is that UBL is the *only* implementation and 
deployment of CCTS 2.01.

In the UBL schema set you will find CCTS 2.01 fragments with the 
UN/CEFACT copyright.  I'm unaware of any other global project using 
these schema fragments ... for example:

As CCTS 2.01 is currently implemented in UBL 2.0, changing at this 
point to CCTS 3 would introduce incompatibilities requiring the need 
for a new major version.  OASIS has already indicated it will not 
produce a new major version of UBL and will focus on maintaining 
minor revisions of UBL 2 to support current market needs for UBL 
deployment.  A UBL 2.1 is planned for release in 2009 to address some 
of the growing requirements for 2.0, and it will be done in a 
fully-backward compatible fashion, thus not requiring existing 2.0 
deployments to change.  I don't think the committee will be changing 
to CCTS 3 for these reasons.

Perhaps are you referring to the core component library CCL?  There 
is an identified project within UBL and UN/CEFACT TBG 17 to align the 
UBL 2.1 library with CCL 08B (this has been in the works for a while 
and most recently minuted just this week):


There have been presentations about this, a recent one at the UBL 
International 2008 conference in Rome in April, and you'll find an 
archive of the presentations here where Tim McGrath documented the plan:


I hope this helps.
