UDDI to EDGAR Gateway

Given:

Plan: Build a UDDI/EDGAR Gateway by first constructing a GILS/EDGAR Gateway and connecting it with the UDDI/GILS Gateway. (Note: A requirement of the UDDI/EDGAR Gateway is to maintain cross-referencing between EDGAR "search URL's" and UDDI businessKey's. This cross-reference function is designed into the UDDI/GILS Gateway.)

Semantic crosswalk of UDDI/GILS/EDGAR

For purposes of a UDDI/EDGAR gateway, we are only looking to deal with the information in the "SEC-HEADER" record:
   <SEC-HEADER>
      <FILER>
         <COMPANY-DATA>
            <CONFORMED-NAME>
            <CIK>
            <ASSIGNED-SIC>
         </COMPANY-DATA>
         <BUSINESS-ADDRESS>
            <STREET1>
            <STREET2>
            <CITY>
            <STATE>
            <ZIP>
         </BUSINESS-ADDRESS>
      </FILER>
   </SEC-HEADER> 

These have straightforward counterparts in the GILS view of UDDI. (Here, I assume UDDI version 2 with separate address elements for city, state, and zip):

  UDDI    businessEntity / name  
  GILS     Use Attribute 4 (Title)  
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / COMPANY-DATA / CONFORMED-NAME

  UDDI    businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / addressLine (1) 
  GILS     Use Attribute 2025 (Contact Street address)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / BUSINESS-ADDRESS / STREET1

  UDDI    businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / addressLine (2)  
  GILS     Use Attribute 2025 (Contact Street address)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / BUSINESS-ADDRESS / STREET2

  UDDI    (businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / *@useType="city") AND 
               (businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / * ) 
  GILS     Use Attribute 2026 (Contact City)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / BUSINESS-ADDRESS / CITY 
 
  UDDI    ( businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / *@useType="state") AND 
               ( businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / * ) 
  GILS     Use Attribute 2027 (Contact State)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / BUSINESS-ADDRESS / STATE 

  UDDI    ( businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / *@useType="zip") AND 
               ( businessEntity / contacts / contact / address / * ) 
  GILS     Use Attribute 2028 (Contact Zip)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / BUSINESS-ADDRESS / ZIP  

  UDDI    businessEntity / identifier  
  GILS     Use Attribute 29 (Subject Terms Uncontrolled)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / COMPANY-DATA / CIK

  UDDI    businessEntity / category 
  GILS     Use Attribute 29 (Subject Terms Uncontrolled)
  EDGAR SEC-HEADER / FILER / COMPANY-DATA / ASSIGNED-SIC

Example:

The following URL search will retrieve all EDGAR documents filed between 1993 and 2001 with a value of "AK" within the STATE sub-element of the BUSINESS-ADDRESS (this search syntax uses the EDGAR "simple" query type):

http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/srch-edgar?text=AK+%3Cin%3E+STATE+%3Cin%3E+BUSINESS-ADDRESS&first=1993&last=2001&mode=Simple
