Specification Overview:
Electronic Court Filing Version 4.01 defines the LegalXML Electronic Court Filing 4.01 (ECF 4.0) specification, which consists of a set of non-proprietary XML and Web services specifications, along with clarifying explanations and amendments to those specifications, that have been added for the purpose of promoting interoperability among electronic court filing vendors and systems. ECF Version 4.01 is a maintenance release to address several minor schema and definition issues identified by implementers of the ECF 4.0 specification

Electronic Court Filing 4.0 Web Services Service Interaction Profile Version 2.01 defines a Service Interaction Profile, as defined in section 5 of the LegalXML Electronic Court Filing 4.0 (ECF 4.0) specification. The Web Services Service Interaction Profile may be used to transmit ECF 4.0 messages between Internet-connected systems.

Electronic Court Filing 4.0 Portable Media Service Interaction Profile Version 2.0 defines a Service Interaction Profile, as defined in section 5 of the LegalXML Electronic Court Filing 4.0 (ECF 4.0) specification. The Portable Media Service Interaction Profile may be used to store ECF 4.0 message transmissions to portable media in the absence of an active network between the sending and receiving MDEs.

Public Review Period:
The public review starts Monday, 3 October 2011 and ends Tuesday, 18 October 2011. The specifications were previously submitted for 30-day public reviews [2]. This 15-day review is limited in scope to changes made from the previous review.

Changes are highlighted in the diff-marked PDF files included with each review package.

This is an open invitation to comment. OASIS solicits feedback from potential users, developers and others, whether OASIS members or not, for the sake of improving the interoperability and quality of its technical work.
