    UBL 2.0

    UBL increases interoperability in electronic commerce by standardizing
    generic business messages. The UBL 1.0 Standard, released in November
    2004, includes an XML library of standard data components and a set
    of basic business schemas (purchase order, invoice, shipping notice,
    etc.) together with a wealth of supporting materials to aid the
    implementer. UBL 2.0, approved as an OASIS Standard in November
    2006, incorporates the experience of a number of government
    agencies in 23 new document types that fill out the basic
    order-to-invoice process of UBL 1.0 to provide a complete
    XML solution for electronic procurement. This presentation
    will introduce UBL, explain its relationship to ebXML (ISO 15000),
    and explore the implications of a standard electronic business
