New release 1.6.5 of OASIS CAM toolkit for exchange schema

The new release of camprocessor is available on SourceForge: 

New features include enhanced tool for evaluating a schema and template against naming and design rules (NDR). The evaluator is capable of flagging a whole range of common mistakes and issues from XSD schema.

The term representation rules and the assessment score are all configurable via xslt functions that are in a separate include file.

Also improved is the XSD schema ingesting process to cover more syntax nuances of XSD - and then the CAM 2 XSD exporter is more comprehensive in its generation of XSD schema - including support for 
NIEM.gov features and wantlist generation by comparison to the NIEM dictionary. 

The XML test case samples generation has also been improved.  Overall 38 enhancements and fixes added.

BoostAero ebXML for Aerospace & Defence e-business

The BoostAero initiative is using ebXML V2 for eSupplyChain exchanges between participating European and American Aerospace & Defence companies (http://www.boostaero.com).

Following the best international standardization practices, the Business Requirement Specifications have been submitted to the UN/CEFACT by the ASD (AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe) and the AIA (IS Aerospace Industries Association).

Three companies have so far attained certification for their ebXML products including Axway, Cleo and SRCI.  Cleo supports the AS/400 environment.  Axway was recently retained to manage the exchanges of the French SIMMAD (Ministry for Defense) with its external and internal suppliers, through its Synchrony platform (http://www.publi-news.fr/data/12052009/12052009-093522.html).
