The OASIS Universal Business Language Technical Committee wishes to formally recognize the exceptional contribution Andy Schoka has made to the development and success of the UBL standard (ISO/IEC 19845).Andy joined the Committee exactly eleven years ago, an amazing commitment for a person who was supposedly slowing down into retirement. His deep knowledge of standardization processes, his tenacity, and his meticulous eye for detail have proven invaluable on many occasions. The quality of the work and the experiences of committee members have all benefitted from Andy's participation.Voluntary activities such as this engage not only the professional but also the personal side of life. The UBL Technical Committee also appreciates the tacit acceptance by his patient wife Rita of the late night calls, long distance travel and periods of absence that she and Andy have endured over this time. The Committee thanks them both.
UBL 2.2 - the initial suggestion period for UBL 2.2 is now closed - the TC is now expecting each of the Transportation, Pre-award and Post-award subcommittees to make the recommendations for 2.2 additions to be agreed upon by the TC; this is done by way of a JIRA ticket - Tim managing requirements for transportation documents - Kees managing requirements for post-award documents - Ole managing requirements for pre-award documents - Roberto managing requirements for party information documents - the current UBL 2.2 csd01wd08 spreadsheet is found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/185sbrn5rodJmu612GGI54_N0eQKNvKZhnoIgksM-MWI/edit - the csd01wd07 working draft release of UBL 2.2 artefacts is found at: https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/document.php?document_id=58873 https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl/201609/msg00021.html - documentation requirements - a Google text document of the hub document is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11Atj1Knidip35iwt_3hWgJlY7OhNhHh5OYCCx53mAYE/edit - committee members have been given permissions to edit the document - Ken will try to move the content into XML when the edits are complete - removing hanging paragraphs by adding introductory sections - disambiguating section titles - each submitter of new documents and objects must consider what additional documentation is needed in the UBL hub document: - general business rules - sections 2.2.x - business objects - sections 2.x - party roles - section 2.20 - section 3.2.x is now managed separately using the XML document "UBL-2.2-Schema-summary-information.xml" in this directory: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B4X4evii3UjcdG5wNlVFTXlaYVU - download the XML, edit with your additions then upload the new XML using drag-and-drop into the directory - please do the process quickly to avoid conflict edits with others - there is no need to maintain alphabetization ... just group new documents at the end by subcommittee - please inform Ken when the changes are made - please review all JIRA tickets and comment and/or act where necessary: https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972 - all of the issues are to be closed by September 1, 2016 in order to create the first committee specification draft and public review draft - we aren't going to make this because of vacation schedules - please remember to document your actions on the ticket and then assign the ticket to the next person (usually Ken) to deal with the ticket, as others won't know what is being done, leaving the ticket status as "OPEN" (Ken will change it from OPEN to RESOLVED when the changes have been incorporated into internal draft or external released deliverables) - when asking a question in the spreadsheet, or challenging a value such as a definition, please include a question mark (?) and that can be used to search for outstanding issues ... better still would be to simply create a JIRA ticket for the issue and leave the definitions untouched until they are addressedUBL-42 Add ActualPickupTransportEvent and ActualDeliveryTransportEvent as ASBIEs in Consignment

https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/UBL-16 UBL-1 Documents for integrating supply chain https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/UBL-1 Naming and Design Rules - three Statements of Use for BD-NDR planned to be submitted: - OASIS BDXR TC - Kenneth Bengtsson (for the BDE project) - OASIS UBL TC - G. Ken Holman (for the UBL project) - Document Engineering Services - Tim McGrath (for the Australian Digital Business Council) - VOTE: are these three submissions acceptable to the committee? - VOTE: does the committee agree to the Business Document Naming and Design Rules Version 1.0 Committee Specification 01 being submitted as a Candidate OASIS Standard? JSON Task Group - notes from last week: - it was suggested that we create a JSON task group to explore the appropriateness of the technology w.r.t. UBL- JSON and noSQL database solutions are good for working *with* UBL documents
- XML is good for representing UBL documents for interchange - many vendors are coming out with solutions incorporating JSON, but they are all bespoke and incompatible with each other - if we ended up with a methodology for applying UBL structures in a JSON environment, this may be helpful to the community - does anyone know the provenance of http://json-schema.org/ to know if this is suitable? - still looking for a lead to take on this review - the comment was made that JSON realizes a specific instance of information and so any use of JSON will be application-specific on how that information is being used, and so it would be out of scope of the UBL committee to express constraints of a general nature across all use of JSON - Ken notes that ECMA has submitted JSON to ISO for standardization as ISO/IEC 21778 "The JSON data interchange format" as a PAS submission ... interestingly, the body of the document is only 5 pages of content and that fully describes the syntax - the ISO specification is this ECMA-404 document with an ISO cover page: http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/files/ECMA-ST/ECMA-404.pdf - the discussion centred around what might be needed is a "serialization specification" of how to take a particular instance of the UBL business objects and express that and its constituent components using JSON syntax - this is not the equivalent of the XSD expression of constraints (which is then serialized as XML), this is directly going to the JSON syntax from some abstract programmatic expression of the values of the objects as CCTS business objects that we have standardized JIRA tickets https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972 (note that the view can be changed using the box icon at top right; the list view provides the most summary information, without the detail view obscuring the screen space) - when creating tickets, remember to distinguish the following components by how they are described to be used as categories: <https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/UBL/?selectedTab=com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:components-panel>https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/UBL/?selectedTab=com.atlassian.jira.jira-projects-plugin:components-panel - status and resolution values: - NEW - the issue has been created but not yet agreed to be in consideration or not for the development distribution - in order for the issue to become active work for the committee the new ticket must be changed to OPEN or it will not be seen in the "to do" filter - the other option on a new ticket is to change it to DEFERRED - please remember to look at the open filter to ensure visibility: https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=12972 - DEFERRED - the issue is not in consideration for the development distribution - please remember to use this when creating new tickets for backwards-incompatible changes - OPEN - the issue is in consideration for the development distribution - keep the issue OPEN when assigning to Ken for incorporation - please remember to add a comment regarding expectations whenever you assign an OPEN ticket to another person for any action - RESOLVED + Applied - the issue is incorporated in test but not released- RESOLVED + Fixed - the issue is incorporated in a released test version;
(record which one) - RESOLVED + No Action - considered as no action for distribution - RESOLVED + Cannot Reproduce - considered as no action for distribution - APPLIED - the issue is included in a public review (record which one) - see also the discussion on the status workflows here: https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl/201606/msg00022.html - members please note to discuss ticket issues as comments to the ticket so that we can audit the discussion when making decisions about the ticket, without having to find the discussion on the main mail list - to find all of the OASIS TC Administration tickets related to UBL, use the https://issues.oasis-open.org/issues/?filter=13070 filter UBL TC next steps - what promotional issues need to be addressed? - do we need a travelling road show along the lines of UBL International? - http://www.UBLConference.com - can anyone volunteer to create more short video segments to be shared?
