Formación en UBL

Del 1 al 3 de octubre de 2007 hay una excelente ocasión de formarse en aspectos avanzados de XML y UBL, y profundizar en las tecnologías esenciales de la comunicación de documentos empresariales entre ordenadores de entidades privadas y entre estas y la administración pública.

En el marco del Congreso UBL tres ponentes reconocidos internacionalmente imparten sus cursos por primera vez en España:

Salvo en el caso de Oriol, la formación es, en principio, en inglés (puede valorarse la posibilidad de traducción simultánea pero tendría un sobrecoste, y necesitaríamos conocer cuántos estáis interesados). El coste por jornada es de 500 euros, y los cursos  son de 1 o de 3 jornadas.

Por favor contactad con los ponentes para ver el detalle y contenido de las clases.

Monday October 1, 2007 to Wednesday October 3, 2007 (a one-, two- or three-day hands-on course):

  • Practical Universal Business Language DeploymentCrane Softwrights Ltd. (presented in English)
    • sign up for day 1 only, the first two days together or all three days together
  • day 1 – UBL 2.0 specification and materials
    • a detailed overview of all of the materials found in the UBL 2.0 specification with hands-on exercises utilizing the materials
  • day 2 – Code lists in XML documents
    • a detailed overview, with hands-on exercises, of using code lists in UBL and configuring code lists for adapting UBL 2.0 in trading partner arrangements
    • this will also be of interest to non-UBL users needing to implement code lists with any XML document
  • day 3 – UBL 2.0 customization
    • a detailed overview, with hands-on exercises, of creating your own UBL 2.0 subsets for a community of users
  • “Practical Universal Business Language Deploymentâ€? (formerly titled “Practical Use of UBL Artefactsâ€?) overviews the Universal Business Language (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/) suite of publicly-available files, process and methodology descriptions, deployment strategies and documentation from a technical perspective of the roles that all these artefacts play in information systems and how to work with each artefact with hands-on experience.

    UBL, the Universal Business Language, is the product of an international effort to define a royalty-free library of standard electronic XML business documents such as purchase orders and invoices. Developed in an open and accountable OASIS Technical Committee with participation from a variety of industry data standards organizations, UBL is designed to plug directly into existing business, legal, auditing, and records management practices, eliminating the re-keying of data in existing fax- and paper-based supply chains and providing an entry point into electronic commerce for small and medium-sized businesses.

    This is a course supporting the deployment and use of UBL artefacts, but this is not a course in the interpretation of specific UBL information items in a business context or the adaptation of financial systems to the semantics expressed by UBL. The instructor is not in a position to offer financial or legal advice regarding the application or suitability of UBL to any particular scenario or purpose.

    Hands-on exercises are provided in a turnkey fashion for a Java-based environment under either Windows command-line or Linux shell invocation. Students may use any editing tool they wish for modifying the exercise files when completing the exercise objectives.

    The following topics are covered through the class:

    • parties and document types – use case and business documents
    • information items – data description spreadsheets
    • model conventions – Naming and Design Rules
    • documents and document models – schema expressions
    • model semantics – data dictionary
    • XPath enumerations
    • methodology for code list and value validation
    • customization and system design considerations

Tuesday October 2, 2007 (a one-day course):

  • Understanding the Universal Business Language – Tim McGrath – Port Community Systems (presented in English)
    • A guide to understanding the UBL business library and its document models.
  • The OASIS standard XML vocabulary for business documents is known as UBL (the Universal Business Language). UBL defines standard XML constructs for common components such as Party, Address, and Item as well as business documents such as Order, Invoice, and Waybill. This workshop explains why UBL exists and what is provided as part of the UBL standard package. It also explains the meaning of many key UBL components. The objective is to enable students to not only understand the principles of UBL but also the way UBL works in practice. The target audience are managers and business analysts and the material does not require prior exposure to UBL or XML.

Tuesday October 2, 2007 (a one-day hands-on course):

  • Practical Code List ImplementationCrane Softwrights Ltd. (presented in English)
    • This one-day class overviews in detail the genericode representation and validation of controlled vocabularies such as code lists and identifier lists for XML documents of any XML vocabulary.
  • “Practical Code List Implementationâ€? overviews in detail the representation and validation of controlled vocabularies such as code lists and identifier lists for XML documents of any XML vocabulary. The OASIS genericode format (a work item of the OASIS Code List Representation Technical Committee http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/codelist/) is used for the representation of values, and the OASIS UBL Methodology for Code List and Value Validation (a work item of the OASIS Universal Business Language Technical Committee http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ubl/) is used for validating instances of any XML document model with controlled values.

    Note that while UBL code lists and instances are used in the class for example and instruction, students are encouraged to bring to the hands-on class their own code lists and their own business document instances of their own XML vocabularies to supplement the exercises. Time is provided in class for students to create simple code lists and validation files for their own business documents as pro-forma artefacts that can be embellished after class into their own production files.

    This is a course supporting the development and deployment of controlled vocabularies, including meta data specification, list maintenance, list restriction, list extension and the implementation and application of validation processes against instances that include constrained information items.

    This technically-oriented course is written for both the user of UBL (as day two of the three-day configuration of the Practical Universal Business Language Deployment) and for anyone using controlled vocabularies with any XML document vocabulary. For the implementer and specifying authority for a controlled vocabulary it is important to understand candidate opportunities to work with the artefacts and to gain hands-on experience in their use and applicability in the context of the documented methodologies and deployment strategies.

    The course addresses the following topics related to controlled vocabularies:

    • code list and constrained value concepts
    • controlled vocabulary representation
    • controlled vocabulary extension and restriction
    • methodology for controlled vocabulary and value validation

Wednesday October 3, 2007 (a one-day course):

  • Designing Business Documents with UBL – Tim McGrath – Port Community Systems (presented in English)
    • an approach to design and customization of UBL to satisfy specific requirements
  • The OASIS standard XML vocabulary for business documents is known as UBL (the Universal Business Language). UBL is establishing itself as the language of choice for a variety of electronic commerce applications. These applications often require some refinement of the standard structures. This workshop explains the design principles behind UBL and how it can be adapted to suit the requirements of different business processes. This includes customizing existing UBL structures and creating new document types. The objective is to enable students to understand the issues involved in customizing UBL and also how to develop specific implementations that suit the requirements of their context of use. The target audience are system analysts and developers responsible for the implementation of document interfaces. Some background in UBL and/or XML is recommended (such as completion of the “Understanding the Universal Business Languageâ€? workshop).

Friday October 5, 2007 (a one-day hands-on course):

  • Practical Universal Business Language DeploymentCrane Softwrights Ltd. (presented in English)
  • UBL 2.0 specification and materials
    • a detailed overview of all of the materials found in the UBL 2.0 specification with hands-on exercises utilizing the materials

Metro Pio XII

Este evento ha tenido lugar por primera vez en noviembre de 2006 en Copenhage (Dinamarca). Todavía está accesible el Programa UBL International 2006, y las ponencias presentadas.

El evento dura una semana porque en el mismo marco se desarrollan Tutoriales impartidos por G. Ken Holman y Tim McGrath contratados separadamente. El evento en sí, tiene lugar el jueves 4 de octubre de 2007 y acogerá a importantes ponentes de talla internacional.

Como sucedió en el 2006, se ha coordinado el que la reunión privada  de los delegados de IDABC tenga lugar el viernes 5 de octubre de 2007, de forma que también puedan participar como congresistas el día anterior.

Está previsto que la inscripción al evento principal sea gratuita, si bien la formación impartida por los expertos mencionados, tendrá un coste que se indicará oportunamente.

En estos momentos estamos buscando patrocinadores del evento que tendrá una gran resonancia nacional e internacional. Hasta la fecha las entidades con las que hemos contactado son favorables a su participación en el evento.

La secretaría técnica del evento la está llevando a cabo Atenea Interactiva . Por favor, contacten con UBLInternational (arroba) ateneainteractiva.com para coordinar la participación como patrocinadores (que tendrán preferencia en las ponencias) o como ponentes.
