XSLT Scripts released for generating CPA from BPSS

The ebXML Business Process (ebBP) to ebXML Collaboration Protocol Profile and Agreement (ebCPPA) transformation project has made available an initial set of scripts under GNU Public License for use in generating CPA agreements.

This project provides a tool (XSLT and scripts) to create ebXML CPP and ebXML CPPA building blocks (XML components that are included in any CPA or CPP that includes a given business process). Further a tool is provided that merges the ebXML CPPA building blocks with a sample CPA to a complete ebXML CPA.

This implementation resulted from the works on the Universal Business Process (UBP) which was done as part of the OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) Small Business Subset (SBS) work.

See http://docs.oasis-open.org/ubl/cs-UBL-1.0-SBS-1.0/ for that committee specification

In addition sample CPA building blocks and maintainable sharable CPA components are available from the OASIS ebXML CPPA committee site:

Version 3 release of OMAR ebXML Registry open source

The FreebXML project has announced the next formal release of their ebXML registry implementation V3.0 final1.

This latest open source release is the culmination of over one years collaborative effort lead by Sun Microsystems and supported by the developer communities in N.America, Europe and Asia.
The OMAR 3.0 Registry middleware toolkit provides feature complete support for the latest OASIS ebXML Registry public specifications and component ISO 15000-4. It enables developers to deploy registry services for their SOA solutions and build user interface solutions around that using open platform technologies.

Registry services are now emerging as one of the key components in extended collaborative ebusiness and web applications providing the ability to coordinate and share information securely in a variety of roles.

Example marque applications using OMAR now include:

  • Secure medical document sharing for the IHE/XDS community including over 20 vendors of commercial healthcare application products
  • United Nations project for ebusiness vocabularies
  • RIDE project from EU providing OWL semantic support
  • Web service management solutions middleware vendors

An overview of what registry technology is can be found at the project Wiki site.

For more information and to download the latest OMAR 3.0 toolkit visit the project website.
