Subject: UBL Methodology for Code List and Value Validation - version 0.8 draft 2

Fellow UBL TC members,

I'm pleased to announce the availability of a minor revision to the 
UBL Methodology for Code List and Value Validation draft 
specification (formerly titled "UBL Code List Value Validation 
Methodology"), now at version 0.8 draft 2:


Based on feedback from users, this revision allows the specification 
of no context/value associations so that the artefact can be used in 
a situation where there are no values to be validated.  This allows 
for an explicit specification of no values, providing completeness in 
situations where all document models can now be accompanied by 
context/value associations, some of which may be empty.

The stylesheets produce a well-formed empty Schematron pattern, which 
can be combined with business rules as can non-empty Schematron patterns.

As before, this methodology used in UBL is not tied to UBL and can be 
used for the specification and validation of controlled vocabularies 
such as code lists and enumerated identifiers in XML documents of any 
vocabulary and using any code list specified using genericode or 
another XML vocabulary for enumerations.

I look forward to continuing to receive such valuable feedback from 
users to improve on the specification and implementation of these concepts.


. . . . . . . . . . . . Ken

p.s. Happy new year and all the best to you in 2007!
