The two will define new modules for the BizTalk.Org
library that enables data to be exchanged between SAP and Windows CE.
Both portals will act as repositories for XML schemas, but BizTalk.org
will only publish schemas that work within Microsoft's BizTalk "framework".
The initiatives, due to follow the launch in March of the BizTalk Framework, include a new BizTalk.Org
web site to serve as an open repository for the submission and publication of XML-based BizTalk Framework schemas, the formation of a steering committee to manage the web site, and draft specifications for the BizTalk Framework, available on the BizTalk.Org
site -- at http://www.biztalk.org/.
The schema is for MarketSoft's eLeads application, and has been submitted to BizTalk.org
, the central repository and developer resource site set up by Microsoft for the framework.
Microsoft has its own portal site, BizTalk.org
, which appears to have similar aims.
Last week Microsoft and Oasis simultaneously set up new portal sites - Biztalk.org
and XML.org respectively - as "open repositories" for Framework schemas.
