The Talaris Services Business Language´┐Ż: A Case Study on Developing XML Vocabularies Using the Universal Business Language

This paper outlines the methodology used in the development of the Services Business Language, an XML vocabulary for web-based services procurement developed using the reusable semantic components of the Universal Business Language (UBL). UBL is still an incomplete standard, and the complete UBL model is not yet available in a readily accessible format; many of the decisions we made reflected this reality. Lastly, we discuss the design and implementation challenges we encountered and propose rules and guidelines for similar projects.
