Live demos will provide hands-on experience about the power and flexibility of the XQuery language. At the end of the session, you will have answers to these and more questions: Can I use XQuery to query large XML documents? Can I use XQuery to query non-XML documents? Why would I use XQuery instead of Java? How do I get started with XQuery? How can I modularize my XQuery? How is XQuery different from XSLT? April 2007 Jon Bosak, Sun Microsystems 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 language. About the presenter Sun Microsystems Distinguished Engineer 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.
