Re-release of UBLish v1.0b.kpo for UBL v1.0-beta schemas

UBLish v1.0b.kpo is now available as a simple tool to generate  UBL 1.0-beta schemas.  This re-release version, first released in 2003 Nov 24,  features:

  • Single-package windows-driven installation, including run-time engine, desktop icon, and quick launch icon.  (Original release required separate installation of run-time engine and manual set up of directories)
  • Runs fully on open source run-time interpreter engine Kopio which is hosted on SourceForge under Apache License.  With the standard and consistent licensing terms, it becomes a non-issue in terms of cost, derivation, modification, commercial use, etc.
  • Converts Excel spreadsheet models stored in "xls-dir" into UBL 1.0-beta schemas in "xsd-dir".
  • Converts UBL 1.0-beta schemas stored in "xsd-dir" into Excel spreadsheet models in "xls2-dir"  for round-trip conversion comparisons.
  • On-screen progress report while UBLish works on the conversion.
  • Single-button erasure of all generated schemas to facilitate re-generation.

UBLish is now evolving as an open source  project  on SourceForge under Apache License.  This project has just been approved on SourceForge, and  as a start, I'm re-releasing UBLish v1.0b and hope to eventually catch up to UBLish v2.0 which would generate UBL v2.0 schemas.

Comments, feedbacks, bugs, feature suggestions, developers and users are all welcome!
