Subject: [Fwd: New Release of NIST's XML Schema Quality of Design Tool]

As some of you are aware, I have been helping NIST in developing schema's,
transformations and authoring tools to support NDRs in general and QOD.
This latest version provides the ability to import and export NDR profiles
and tests in XML.

There are a limited number UBL testcases already in QOD.

I thought the UBL committee might be interested in this tool!

Subject: New Release of NIST's XML Schema Quality of Design Tool
From:    "KC Morris" <kcm@nist.gov>

NIST is pleased to announce a new release of the XML Schema Quality of
Design Tool -- QOD.

QOD assists in consistently using XML Schema for the specification of
information. QOD is intended for both people developing guidelines for
writing high quality XML schemas and those writing XML schemas.  The
purpose of QOD is to improve the quality of the XML schemas.   The
system allows users to define rules for writing quality XML Schemas and
to test schemas against those rules.  This release of the tool includes
improvements to the user interface, performance, and display of results,
support for ISO Schematron for writing tests, and the addition of an
import and export capability to facilitate off-line development of tests.

The QOD site also contains a number of sample sets of tests for XML
Schema Naming and Design Rule (NDR) specifications. In addition to the
improvements to the tool, the number of tests available also has been
expanded.   Extensive sets of test based on the following specifications
are available:

 * The OAGIS*^ * 9.0 XML Naming and Design Rules Standard
   Open Applications Group, September 30, 2005.

 * "IRS XML Standards and Guidelines."
   <http://xml.coverpages.org/IRS-NDR-200508.pdf> Edited by Sol
   Safran <mailto:Sol.Safran@irs.gov> (IRS, Enterprise Data
   Management). Draft document. From Volume 4, IRS Enterprise Data
   Standards and Guidelines (Special Tools and Techniques), September

 * Department of the Navy XML Naming and Design Rules
   <http://xml.coverpages.org/DON-XML-NDR20050127-33942.pdf>. Final
   Version 2.0. Office of the DON, Chief Information Officer. January

As a guest user, you may use these rules to check whether a schema that
you are developing or uses meets those guidelines. More advanced users
are able to create their own rules and make sets of rules available to
their communities.

For more information, check it out at http://nist.gov/qod!
