The previously-scheduled instructor-led training has been cancelled due to insufficient pre-registration in advance of the November 3, 2014 early-bird date.
UBL International is a training summit bringing together worldwide Universal Business Language expertise to deliver full-day hands-on courses from commercial training companies:
The following courses offered are described in detail below:
Please contact the company running a particular course if you need to ask more direct questions. In particular, each company is responsible for publishing its own costs, and handling the payments directly. Please contact them individually for pricing information. The UBL International conference organizers are not responsible for the running of the individual training sessions.
Please note that the workshops will not be held in the same venue as the symposium. Please contact each company for information regarding each training venue.
1-day class: the cost is €600+tax per person, with a discount of 10% before the early-bird date or if a company sends more than one student. Register here!
Practical Universal Business Language Deployment (formerly titled Practical Use of UBL Artefacts) overviews the Universal Business Language (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/) 2.1 suite of publicly-available files, process and methodology descriptions, deployment strategies and documentation from a technical perspective of the roles that all these artefacts play in information systems and how to work with each artefact with hands-on experience.
UBL, the Universal Business Language, is the product of an international effort to define a royalty-free library of standard electronic XML business documents such as purchase orders and invoices. Developed in an open and accountable OASIS Technical Committee with participation from a variety of industry data standards organizations, UBL is designed to plug directly into existing business, legal, auditing, and records management practices, eliminating the re-keying of data in existing fax- and paper-based supply chains and providing an entry point into electronic commerce for small and medium-sized businesses.
This is a course supporting the deployment and use of UBL artefacts, but this is not a course in the interpretation of specific UBL information items in a business context or the adaptation of financial systems to the semantics expressed by UBL. The instructor is not in a position to offer financial or legal advice regarding the application or suitability of UBL to any particular scenario or purpose.
Hands-on exercises are provided in a turnkey fashion for a Java-based environment under either Windows command-line or Linux shell invocation. Students may use any editing tool they wish for modifying the exercise files when completing the exercise objectives.
The following topics are covered through the class:
This one-day class overviews in detail the genericode representation and validation of controlled vocabularies such as code lists and identifier lists for XML documents of any XML vocabulary.
The cost is €600+tax per person, with a discount of 10% before the early-bird date or if a company sends more than one student. Register here!
Practical Code List Implementation overviews in detail the representation and validation of controlled vocabularies such as code lists and identifier lists for XML documents of any XML vocabulary. The OASIS genericode format (a work item of the OASIS Code List Representation Technical Committee http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/codelist/) is used for the representation of values, and the OASIS UBL Methodology for Code List and Value Validation (a work item of the OASIS Universal Business Language Technical Committee http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/) is used for validating instances of any XML document model with controlled values.
Note that while UBL code lists and instances are used in the class for example and instruction, students are encouraged to bring to the hands-on class their own code lists and their own business document instances of their own XML vocabularies to supplement the exercises. Time is provided in class for students to create simple code lists and validation files for their own business documents as pro-forma artefacts that can be embellished after class into their own production files.
This is a course supporting the development and deployment of controlled vocabularies, including meta data specification, list maintenance, list restriction, list extension and the implementation and application of validation processes against instances that include constrained information items.
This technically-oriented course is written for both the user of UBL and for anyone using controlled vocabularies with any XML document vocabulary. For the implementer and specifying authority for a controlled vocabulary it is important to understand candidate opportunities to work with the artefacts and to gain hands-on experience in their use and applicability in the context of the documented methodologies and deployment strategies.
The course addresses the following topics related to controlled vocabularies:
Conference co-organizers are Softarc (Sweden), Document Engineering Services (Australia) and Crane Softwrights Ltd. (Canada). Supported by OASIS.
