The Public Construction Commissioner (PCC) in Taiwan is sponsoring a project to establish the mechanism for developing information standards, in terms of XML schemas, for public construction work and develop an XML Schema repository system for managing and publishing the standardized XML schemas. Parts of the ebXML (Electronic Business using eXtensible Markup Language) Registry Information Model (ebRIM), Version 2.5, proposed by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards), are adopted in the design of the repository system. This paper reports the progress on the development of the repository system in the project.
