UBL comes to Washington

In the April 16 issue of GCN, we did a brief story on how the Universal Business Language is being increasingly used by European governments. UBL is an Extensible Markup Language-based schema for exchanging business documents.

Now UBL Technical Committee Chair Jon Bosak is bringing the word to Washington D.C. He will be speaking at this Wednesday's meeting of the Washington Area SGML/XML Users Group.

For the article, we e-mailed briefly with Bosak, who is a distinguished engineer for Sun Microsystems Inc., and he seemed quite knowledgeable about peculiarities of federal IT, addressing how UBL could work with the Federal Enterprise Architecture Technical Reference Model. Should be an interesting talk. --Posted by Joab Jackson
