Re: XML Standard for exchanging grocery prices
Hi Berk I'd try the Universal Business Language (UBL) Catalogue with some kind of subset of it for pricelists. I created an example for a pricelist for someone earlier this year in discussion on the 'ubl-dev' list here http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl-dev/200702/msg00041.html There's a ready-made subset and related documents (including an XForm to help create pricelists/catalogues) on the my company site under 'Business Web' (see systml link in my signature below). There's a link to it from the UBL support page too along with other offerings, etc http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=ubl-ssc . [There are some to-and-fro discussions of the UBL schema's suitability for simple deployments on the thread of the above mailing to ubl-dev http://www.oasis-open.org/archives/ubl-dev/200702/threads.html#00010 in case you need something with a schema in a single file but that is more debatable when it comes to claiming standards compliance, as the thread shows] The ubl-dev mailing list is managed by OASIS like this one so you join it the same way.
