Subject: Re: UBL & PML (Promise Markup Language)

I apologize to UBL mail list readers that I failed to confirm that the post that I responded to was successfully posted to the UBL list. It wasn't, even though the "To" address included the UBL mail list in the original email I received. I assumed he was an OASIS member and so responded accordingly. I should have confirmed this before responding.

I have since asked him to use the Public Comment list.

Good morning, Andrew, and thank you for your post.

A Google search of '"Promise Markup Language" PML' fails to bring up a specification of PML, except for a couple citations you make in a Google Group. You are showing a spreadsheet screen shot but not any PML XML content. The scenario you present doesn't have very much description at all with which to interpret your question.

Where can the committee find out more background to your question in order to answer it appropriately?

Note that it is UBL's objective to try and solve 80% of the world's business document requirements with standardized constructs in the common library. When there are established vocabularies with their own governance, and the information captured by those vocabularies is ancillary or supplemental to the primary function of the document, the suggested practice in UBL is to encapsulate instances of those vocabularies within UBL's extension point.

If, say, an invoice needed to cite a fragment of PML for historical or informational reasons, that fragment could be embedded in the UBL extension point for the invoice. Then the content would be agnostic to applications that are not looking for the PML and significant to applications that are looking for the PML.

I hope this is helpful. I look forward to learning more background to your question. As stated, you are using terminology in a context not familiar to me. Perhaps there are other committee members who recognize what you are asking.

When I get more information I will open up a JIRA ticket where this can be discussed.

Will UBL cover the granularity provided by Promise Language? See attached examples of a stock trade and a barter trade.
