Subject: eierlegende _V_ollmilchsau

An "eierlegendevollmilchsau" would literally translate as a "egg-laying whole-milk sow" but should be understood in English as something along the lines of "all things to all people". An interesting term in the localization debate…. ;-)

Subject: AW: [ubl] A Prototype Schema for UBL Models


Ooops, Stephen,

I thought, You were considering spreadsheet formats as non-proprietary as well as UML, where XMI serves as a model transport language, which already exists as a more or less sufficient standard.


Now it seems to me, that just XML is non-proprietary for you?


I had a dream: formlery we build several proprietary interfaces for the same purpose. Now we build several non-proprietary interfaces for the same purpose. Is that a progress?


Please find enclosed a draft for another schema modeling language (please replace virtually the term gefeg by any other namespace).





p.s. Who could translate 'eierlegende Wollmilchsau' into English?

Betreff: [ubl] A Prototype Schema for UBL Models

I wonder if this will be of interest to the UBL TC.


This was discussed a while ago in an ISC meeting.


I've prototyped a Schema for the UBL models, based on the ccts:CoreComponentsParameter Schema Module, which it imports.

(both attached)


I guess it could be used as an alternative means of storing the model

data in a non-proprietary (XML) format from which it could be

transformed, perhaps into a variety of other formats, including

Schemas, perhaps forms and even perhaps class diagrams.

Of course it could be transformed to and from spreadsheets too and

other proprietary formats. As such it could be of interest to tools


but it might help towards solving customization/context problems too

with regard to autogeneration.


All the best
