The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has announced a new release of the XML Schema Quality of Design Tool (QOD) from the Manufacturing Engineering Lab. "QOD assists in consistently using XML Schema for the specification of information. QOD is intended for both people developing guidelines for writing high quality XML schemas and those writing XML schemas. The purpose of QOD is to improve the quality of the XML schemas. The system allows users to define rules for writing quality XML Schemas and to test schemas against those rules.
Welcome to UBL XML.org.
This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the UBL OASIS Standard.

This resource is a conversion of UBL 2.0 International Data Dictionary (IDD) spreadsheet files of various languages into OASIS genericode files. Each spreadsheet of each language's localization is converted to a genericode file. In addition, all of the languages are aggregated into a single genericode file for the localization information of each UBL 2.0 document model. User interfaces for programs and other multilingual applications may find it helpful to have some or all of the UBL IDD localization information in a generic keyed-table XML vocabulary.

Exchanging electronic documents involves much more than just choosing a technology. In fact, as when introducing any new business processes, successful implementation requires professional and experienced management and resourcing.
Document Engineering Services is an international consortium of experts supporting universal business interoperability through the use of open standards.
SystML provides a range of forms for simple online and offline creation of UBL electronic business documents in English, Spanish, and Italian. These forms use W3C XForms CSS 3 technologies and therefore require a suitably enabled browser such as Firefox with the XForms extension (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xforms/download.html).

UBL Swinger is a generic UBL instance editor that can create a UBL document instance within minutes. UBL Swinger is also a good reader thanks to its dynamic loading, designed for use with large documents. A special hierarchical view allows the user focus on a precise branch of even a complex UBL document.
The editor can support any collection of UBL Schemas (WXS based) by adding a new XML Catalog to its Workspace.
