Can anyone direct me to an xml vocabulary that is designed to encode
address book-style, or human-directory information? I'm thinking of designing
an address book client app that will need to communicate with several
yet-to-be-determined external datasources. I figure if i make the client
communicate in a standard xml human-resource directory format using soap or
xml-rpc, i can just hide each datasource behind a servlet that will
communicate with the client.
I'd like to use a standard vocab for the human directory information if
possible rather than my own. I know enough to realize that designing an xml
application for even something as simple-sounding as address book info is best
left to the experts. Plus maybe we can gain some interoperability with other
tools in the bargain.
Looking for a vocab that will include the usual info... name, multiple
addresses, phones, emails, etc...
