About this book


In 1989, the ISO Standard 8613 "Office Document Architecture (ODA) and Interchange Format" was published. The Standard is intended for the interchange of documents in an Open Systems environment. ISO 8613 is technically identical to the CCITT Recommendations of the T.410 series called "Open Document Architecture (ODA) and Interchange Format" published in 1988. Almost all major companies in the office automation and telecommunication area are currently developing products based on this Standard. In this book, all important aspects of the presently publishedeight parts of the Standard are discussed. The book provides a comprehensiveand detailed introduction to the technical specifications of ISO 8613 and the concepts on which these specifications are based, including the extensions which were added to the ODA Standard in 1991. The book isprimarily addressed to readers who want to investigate the applicability of the Standard for their document interchange problems, plan to acquire products based on the Standard, or intend to develop document processingsystems conforming to the Standard.
