Version 0.7.2 is a small update of version 0.7, compared to which it contains:

  • a document explaining how SBVR is applied in the definition of the AIXM 5.1 Business Rules
  • an Excel file containing 1800 rules
  • additional Excel files, identifying the changes done incrementally between:
    • version 0.5 and version 0.7
    • version 0.7 and 0.7.1 (this was an internal working version, not published as such)
    • version 0.7.1 and version 0.7.2

Main changes between version 0.5 and version 0.7.x

  • deletion/replacement of rules wrongly defined from previous versions that were identified
  • small editorial corrections in the SBVR style of some rules
  • additional rules for data resolution
  • additional rules necessary for protecting the backwards mapping in EAD, from AIXM 5.1 to AIXM 4.5;
  • a proposed "diagnostics" message, intended to be used as human-readable text in data verification services, when incompliant data is found;
  • the rules are also now provided in an ad-hoc XML format, using the SBVR terminology - NounConcept, FactType, Keyword, etc.
  • each Profile is now a single column, the rules included in the profile are marked with the error level.
