IMS Enterprise Specification - SUPERCEDED BY Learning Information Services

The IMS Enterprise v1.1 Final specification, released July 2002, is fully backwards compatible with the V1.01 specifications.

The major changes in this specification are:

  • Support for a number of the proprietary extensions used to extend interoperability for the v1.01 release. These extensions cover the <person>, <group> and <membership> data objects;
  • Support for multiple <sourcedid> and <userid> structures. Password support has been added to the <userid> structure;
  • Provision of enumerated non-numeric vocabularies. V1.0 uses numeric-based vocabularies. Wherever possible the vocabularies are to be extended to reflect common usage;
  • 'Internationalization' of the core data objects including: Name structure to support non-English conventions
    Telephony and electronic contact numbers to be extended.
