This specification is part of PROS 15/03 Standard for the Encapsulation of Digital Information. It describes how to construct a conformant VERS Encapsulated Object (VEO). The process can be summarised as: 

  • Create a directory to contain the VEO information. 
  • Create subdirectories within the VEO directory to contain the record content 
  • Copy the record content into the subdirectories.
  • Create an XML file describing the logical organisation of the record content, and the metadata describing the record.
  • Create an XML file describing the history of this VEO.
  • Digitally sign both XML files.
  • Copy a text file describing the structure of the VEO into VEO directory.
  • Zip the VEO directory to create the VEO.
