W3C XML Schema #edi #webmethods


XML Schema

The XML Schema Working Group is closed, having completed its work successfully. The specifications are now maintained by the W3C XML Core Working Group .

XML Schemas express shared vocabularies and allow machines to carry out rules made by people. They provide a means for defining the structure, content and semantics of XML documents. in more detail. XML Schema 1.0 was approved as a W3C Recommendation on 2 May 2001 and a second edition incorporating many errata was published on 28 October 2004; see reference list for pointers.

The XML Schema Working Group, part of the XML Activity. is responsible for the W3C’s work on this topic — for details see the Working Group’s charter. W3C Members can also participate in the W3C XML Schema Interest Group, a forum for the discussion of technical issues relating to the development of XML Schema.

XML Schema 1.1

XML Schema 1.1 (in two parts) is a W3C Recommendation. It is intended to be mostly compatible with XML Schema 1.0 and to have approximately the same scope, but also to fix bugs and make whatever improvements we can, consistent with the constraints on scope and compatibility.

There is also a Test Collection aimed at determining which parts of XSD 1.1 have been implemented; several implementations are under development.

If you find errors in Schema 1.1, please let us know. The best way to do that is to add an entry to the W3C’s public installation of Bugzilla. which the WG uses to track issues and enhancement requests, specifying “XML Schema” as the ‘product’ name. Full instructions can be found at If access to Bugzilla is not feasible, please send your comments to the W3C XML Schema Working Group’s public comments mailing list, www-xml-schema-comments (archive ). Please note that both the Bugzilla installation and the comments list are not only public-write but also public-read; don’t say things you don’t want seen in public. Each Bugzilla entry and email message should contain only one comment.

The Bugzilla system should also be used to report errors with XML Schema 1.0.

Please send any related announcements to xmlschema-dev .

    • geometry.xsd defines geometry elements include d into feature.xsd
    • xlinks.xsd is a schema for XLinks (actually a placeholder until a definitive version is provided by W3C) and is also used by feature.xsd

    Guidelines for developing usable application-specific schemas are included as a normative chapter of the specification. A recent vote by the Technical Committee of OGC has elevated GML 2.0 to the status of “adopted technology”. (update 28 Jun 2001 )

Test collection

The W3C XML Schema test collection can be downloaded from the appropriate directory in the W3C CVS server. The most recent version of the test suite is for 14 January 2004 (updated in April 2005).

As part of the process of getting XML Schema to Recommendation, a draft Type Library is available, with definitions of complex types attempting to cover many common needs, including general text content, arrays, complex numbers and dimensioned quantities.

Serialization of the PSVI

XML Schema Part 0: Primer is a non-normative document intended to provide an easily readable description of the XML Schema facilities, and is oriented towards quickly understanding how to create schemas using the XML Schema language. XML Schema Part 1: Structures and XML Schema Part 2: Datatypes provide the complete normative description of the XML Schema language. This primer describes the language features through numerous examples which are complemented by extensive references to the normative texts.

Proposed mechanisms for referring to individual components from an XML Schema.

Discusses issues in defining languages so as to be robust in the face of changes, and gives examples of useful constructs in XML Schema 1.1.

Developments in the community

Testing project at SourceForge a testing project at sourceforge started July 2000 by Curt Arnold XML Schema User Experience Workshop, 21-22 June 2005

The W3C workshop on XML Schema user experiences gathered concrete reports of user experience with XML Schema 1.0, and examined the full range of usability, implementation, and interoperability problems around the specification and its test suite.

Minutes and a chairs’ report are expected to be made public real soon now.

Auto Transport Software, EDI interface, VIN – Dealer Tracking #auto #shows

#auto transporter

Software For Companies In The Auto Transport Business

Auto Transport is a specialized business, and there are a lot of different pieces of information that you need to track and record. Axon Auto Transport Applications have the features you need to run your business efficiently.

Listed below are a few of the features of Axon s Software that are built specifically for Auto Hauling companies. These features are available in addition to the many features already included in the Axon Trucking Software package.

You can set up your vehicle rates for different Origins, Destinations, and Commodities on the Vehicle Rate Tables screen. Each rate can be linked to a specific customer so that they fill in by default on customer Orders.


The Dealers screen lists all your dealers. Creating a Business Partner record for your Dealers ensures that your records are fully integrated – from creating the Order to sending the Invoice to receiving payment. VIN

VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) Allocation Notices

There are two VIN Allocation Notices screens. One provides a record of all the notices that you have received via EDI. You can use the other screen to manually enter notices that have not been imported using EDI.

EDI customers can use VIN Decoding  to break down the information in the VIN so that the Make, Model, and Year fill in automatically. Click the weight button to fill in vehicle weights .

Axon s Auto Transport Software is fully integrated. Your VIN Allocation Notices are integrated with your Orders, your Business Partners, your Invoices, and ACE/ACI .

There’s one-stop shopping on the Orders screen. You can send a Shipment Status to your Dealers. update Vehicle Rates, add Activities, or link Other Charges to a VIN – all without leaving the Orders screen. If you are moving a vehicle between multiple locations, you can attach the VIN to more than one order.

EDI Integration

EDI Applications are available for many Auto Manufacturers Railroad Yards, the Manufacturer EDI s include the ability for the Auto Transporter to pass Vehicle Inspection information back to their clients. EDI is a complex and constantly changing application, for more information call sales directly at 1-800-567-8385 or request a demo of Axon s capabilities.

Once you ve invoiced all your VINs, you can review the status of your Invoices and make sure that all the individual line items have been accepted by running the Invoice Audit Report.
