I think there is some confusion here about the CCTS standards stack in general, and the UN/CEFACT Standards Stack in particular. The CCTS standards stack consists of CCTS. It requires the use of no other specification - UN/CEFACT or other - for implementation. The UN/CEFACT CCTS standards stack however does have a defined XML NDR as part of the stack - for use by UN/CEFACT. Further CCTS does not require any syntax specific set of rules. In fact its power is in its syntax neutrality and its context mechanisms. > There are actually three XML NDRs for CCTS: > > 1. UBL 2.0 NDR > 2. ATG2 XML NDR 2.0, and 1.0 > 3. OAGIs 9 v0.7 NDR Actually, there are many more and I am not sure I would include OAGi 9 at this point. The US Department of the Navy for example has their own CCTS NDR. What is interesting is that many SDOs have realized - driven in large part by their membership - that it makes no sense to have different flavors of NDRs and that yes there is real value in being able to auto generate schema from the business models. OAGi, GS1, CIDX, ACORD, UN/CEFACT, UBL,RosettaNet, AIAG and others have come together to work collaboratively on the next set of UN/CEFACT XML NDRs that will serve as a convergence point for all of these organizations.
