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


UBL Schemas Released for Public Review

The first draft of a royalty-free data representation standard for
electronic commerce has been released by the OASIS Universal Business
Language (UBL) Technical Committee. Intended to become international
standards for electronic trade, the UBL schemas contained in the review
package specify machine-readable XML representations of familiar
business documents. Together, they can be used to implement a generic
buy/sell relationship or supply chain whose components fit existing
trade agreements and are immediately understandable by workers in
business, supply-chain management, EDI, accounting, customs, taxation,
and shipping. The UBL release can be found at
http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lcsc/0p70/. A zip file containing
the entire review set packaged for local installation can be downloaded
from http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/lcsc/0p70/UBL0p70.zip.

Interested parties are invited to comment on this release directly to
the OASIS UBL Library Content Subcommittee Editor, Bill Meadows
(bill.meadows@sun.com), using the feedback form at
The deadline for submitting comments is Monday, 14 April 2003.

OASIS Launches XML.org Focus Areas

OASIS introduced the first in a series of XML.org Focus Areas for
Insurance, Human Resources, and Printing & Publishing. Each covers
domain-specific news, standards and initiatives, vendors, consortia,
trade associations, government agencies and implementers, events, and
resources. Partnering with OASIS to provide expert editorial guidance,
ACORD, HR-XML Consortium, and IDEAlliance serve as Content Partners for
the new XML.org Focus Areas. OASIS members are encouraged to review the
new Focus Areas and provide feedback. New XML.org Focus Areas for other
vertical and horizontal industries will be introduced periodically. For
details on sponsoring a Focus Area or serving as a Content Partner,
contact dale.waldt@oasis-open.org.
