Universal Business Language XML

From the OASIS group, responsible for OpenOffice formats among other things, comes a new schema for business processes. The gem here is the new standard for addresses, something long overdue in the XML world.

Ever since my early data modelling experience, with a pre-release version of IMS/DB, deciding how best to deal with addresses has been a major issue. So I looked at this area in particular and it does seem to work well and give the flexibility needed (this is partly due to the greater flexibility of XML over IMS) and I can easily see this becoming the standard.

Forum vs. Home Page

Have we talked about John McCarthy's Common Business Communication Language on LtU before?
