Apologies to those who for whom this is irrelevant.     (01)

Thought some of you might be interested, so am passing it on.    (02)

For those more business-oriented folk.    (03)

> 1. October 22, 2002 - Two Presentations:
> Presentation 1: 
> "The Universal Business Language (UBL)"
> Presenter: Jon Bosak, Distinguished Engineer, Sun Microsystems,
> http://www.sun.com 
and Chair of the OASIS UBL Technical Committee,
http://oasis-open.org/committees/ubl    (05)

> Abstract:
   UBL is an open effort to increase interoperability in
   electronic commerce by standardizing generic business messages.
   Its deliverables include a set of XML schema naming and design
   rules; an XML library of standard data components; a set of
   basic business schemas (purchase order, invoice, shipping
   notice, etc.); and a mechanism for the extension of the basic
   schemas to operate in specific business contexts.  UBL builds
   on the ebXML initiative to establish a common framework for
   electronic commerce and uses the OASIS technical committee
   process to provide a publicly accountable, open, royalty-free
   forum for the development of the standard schemas.  This
   presentation will explain UBL and describe its current status.    (06)

> Speaker Bio:
   Jon Bosak organized and led the working group that created XML,
   subsequently serving for two years as chair of the XML
   Coordination Group of the World Wide Web Consortium.  He is a
   long-time member of OASIS, the Organization for the Advancement
   of Structured Information Standards, and he chaired the
   committee that developed the OASIS process for the definition
   of industry-specific XML markup standards.  He also served on
   the Advisory Board of the Electronic Business XML initiative
   (ebXML), a joint project of OASIS and the United Nations body
   for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business (UN/CEFACT).  He
   currently chairs the OASIS Universal Business Language
   Technical Committee.
> Presentation 2: 
> "Web Services Orchestration"
> Presenter: 
Doron Sherman, Chief Technology Officer, Collaxa, Inc.
http://www.collaxa.com    (07)

> Abstract:
	Web Services Orchestration is the platform layer in network
computing that
	enables composition and coordination of services (the building
blocks) into
	long-running transactions and collaborative business processes.
	entails handling of four primary requirements: asynchronous
interactions, flow
	control, business transaction management and activity
monitoring. Orchestration
	carries the promise of cheaper, better, faster integration
available to the
	mainstream (while current solutions remain locked into a
high-end niche).    (08)

	The components of an orchestration solution address the needs
for development,
	deployment and management based on asynchronous services as the
core design 	
	center. These include means for describing the interactions
(choreography, e.g.
	based on the BPEL4WS/WS-C/WS-T set of specifications), authoring
the business
	logic (orchestration logic), facilities for deployment
(orchestration server)
	and managing/maintaining transactions/processes (orchestration
console).    (09)

	This presentation will explain Web Service Orchestration and
demo a solution.    (010)
