[Part of the Web Services, XML & Business Event Series]
Web service technologies promise to revolutionize electronic business, but global interoperability of business processes cannot occur without the semantic standardization of the messages exchanged in business transactions. In this presentation Jon Bosak of Sun will describe his work with the OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) project to create a set of standard XML schemas for basic business.
Additionally, experience with a real-world undertaking developing an XML vocabulary based on UBL will be presented by Adam Blum of Talaris. Talaris provides an application and web services broker for the electronic procurement of corporate services. Adam will discuss Talaris' Services Business Language, which is itself derived from UBL, and how it approaches the problem of providing a common API to procurement of many different types of employee-centric services.
