Adoption Benefits Brought by a Public Domain Tool to Explore and Validate RESQML V2 Standard EPC Instances

20th PNEC International Conference on Petroleum Data Integration, Information and Data Management - 2016


The presentation describes the public domain tools that the RESQML community is offering for allowing developers and end users to validate RESQML EPC instances written and read by RESQML users: software vendors (Paradigm, Schlumberger, and others), petroleum companies (Total, Shell, Chevron) owning proprietary products or international research centres.

The RESQML Explorer/Validator here presented helps to certify the conformity of RESQML V2 Instances with respect to the XSD schema and to additional business rules by semantically controlling both the relationships that are in the heart of RESQML V2 and other semantic or numeric constraints textually described in the documentation.
