   Re: [xml-dev] Looking for schema management/registry tool

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Marc,

You might consider the freebXML Registry open source project which 
provides an ebXML Registry compliant with the latest ebXML Registry 3.0 
The project has release a 3.0-alpha2 release. However, the latest CVS 
bits are stable, have many new features and bug fixes.
The project is entirely royalty free and provides "Federated, Secure, 
Information Management" of any type of content and associated

The metalink for freebXML Registry is at:


There is an FAQ entry that describes how to use latest CVS bits.

Please see further comments inline below....

freebXML Registry can be used to publish, manage, discover, govern and 
version control any type of content.

This is outside the scope of freebXML Registry project. We envision such 
functionality to
be layered on top of the registry in form of a Schema Assembly tool that 
uses the registry
as a store for managing schemalets and schemas.

I had submitted the following abstract for an upcoming conference on 
this subject:


Unfortunately it was not accepted. If you are interested in 
collaborating on building such
an application based on freebXML Registry then drop me a private email 
and we can
brainstorm on possibilities.

>- version control / configuration & release management of the above
freebXML Registry 3.0 supports automatic registry managed version control of
metadata and content.

>- possibly registry-like capabilities to share the above definitions among
We are based on OASIS ebXML Registry standard (also ISO 15000 part 3 and 4).
The latest ebXML Registry 3.0 specs have just been submitted for final 
OASIS approval
as a standard and if all goes well MAY be approved by end of April.

The freebXML Registry supports the following interface bindings:

-HTTP interface that allows registry artifacts to be accessible via a 
URL (mudulo Access Control)

-SOAP interface that allows any SOAP client to access all features of 
the registry

-JAXR API Provider that allows Java clients to use all features of the 
registry using a standard JCP Approved Java API
that is also a required API in J2EE platform.

>Any suggestions for tools to look at?
The freebXML Registry provides a Java UI (fat client, accessible via 
Java WebStart) and a Web UI (thin client) for performing
registry operations.

Hope this is in the ballpark of what you are looking for. Thanks.
