CommerceNet XML iMarket Project Team,
The XML iMarket Project Planning Team will meet on Monday, October 6, 1997, 9:00am to 12:00pm PDT.
The meeting location will be the CommerceNet offices, 4005 Miranda Ave, Suite 175, Palo Alto, CA 94304 (650-858-1930) unless otherwise notified.
I will arrange for 800# conference call facilities for those unable to attend in person and send the 800# information to those who have replied and confirmed their interest in participating.
If you can attend, please reply confirming whether you will be able to attend in person or whether you will attend via the 800# conference call. Please note that attendence in person or phone is limited to members of CommerceNet's Information Access Portfolio only.
The goal of the meeting is to develop a detailed project plan and Request For Proposal (if needed) to identify companies or consultants with expertise required to help on the project. The iMarket Project is designed to take the XML catalog files and Document Type Definition files produced during the recently completed XML Catalog project. The general plan is to build a demonstration virtual marketplace which utilizes the multiple vendor XML catalogs with standard DTDs and allows shoppers to search for products across vendors by specifying product and merchant attributes. Another goal of this project is to demonstrate how the use of XML stylesheets will allow vendors/merchants to maintain "brand equity" while using common description templates (DTDs).
The XML Catalog tutorial and sample XML/DTD files are available for members at:
