1 Definition

  • OASIS is a not-for-profit, global consortium that drives the development, convergence and adoption of e-business standards.

(DSchneider would add "not just e-business", e.g. document standards are useful to the whole world ...)

2 OASIS standards

2.1 XML/SGML Document standards

2.2 XML

2.3 Other

  • Lots, e.g. various webservices
