Subject: SV: [ubl] Re: [ubl-dev] ubl pricelist validation ?

Dear all

We are developing a schematron validation for UBL 2.0 that we hope we can
release in February. Until then I hope the following guidelines about prices
and total can help - at least for giving an understanding of it.

Kind reagards

To see how UBL documents are validated using the two-phase mechanism 
documented in:


... read through section E.3 and then using a copy of the the 
distribution go into your copy of the val/ directory:


... and run "test.bat" or "sh test.sh" to see how an instance of UBL 
Order is validated with the two-phase validation.  There is a shell 
script named "validate.bat" or "validate.sh" that runs the two-phase 
validation for a single file for a given document model.  This is 
illustrated in section E.2.

The test scenario validates three files:  one that is valid, another 
that is not structurally valid, and a third that is structurally 
valid but has value validation errors.

The whole section E is written to guide people like you in 
understanding how to ensure your instances conform to the UBL 
structure and value constraints.

We are hoping that the val/ directory illustrates to people who are 
not UBL experts how to validate instances that they create.

I invite you to try and use that directory with the your test UBL 
files that you create from your spreadsheets, and would you please 
feed back your experiences (pro or con) so that we can assess what we 
might wish to include in the support file?

Thanks for your input, and good luck in your work with UBL!
