Information technology — Metamodel framework for interoperability (MFI) — Part 16: Metamodel for document model registration (Adopted ISO/IEC 19763-16:2021, first edition, 2021-09)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC.
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 19763-16 throughout.
The International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Information and Communications Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
The primary purpose of the ISO/IEC 19763 series is to specify a metamodel framework for interoperability. This document specifies a metamodel for registering document models (or schemata).
Examples of such document models include:
— specifications for XML documents (using XML schema);
— specifications for JSON documents (using JSON schema).
This metamodel was developed taking into account the requirements for both XML schema and JSON schema, but is applicable to all current specifications for document models.
