XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is a specification developed by the W3C. It is used to encode information and services with meaningful structure and semantics that can be understood by both humans and computers. It is a metalanguage—a language for describing languages. As such, it is even more useful in its way than HTML. Check out any of our articles here to learn more!

XML Matters: Practical XML Data Design and Manipulation for Voting Systems

developerWorks 47274

EVM2003 brings XML to the democratic process. In this installment, David discusses his practical experiences developing interrelated XML data formats for the EVM2003 Free Software project to develop voting machines that produce voter-verifiable paper ballots. Some design principles of format subsetting emerge. In addition, David looks at how an application-specific meaning for XML document equivalence can be programmed, and why canonicalization is insufficient. (This intermediate-level article was first published by IBM developerWorks, June 28, 2004, at http://www.ibm.com/developerWorks.)

EVM2003 brings XML to the democratic process: In this article, David Mertz discusses his practical experiences developing interrelated XML data formats for the EVM2003 Free Software project to develop voting machines that produce voter-verifiable paper ballots. Some design principles of format subsetting emerge. In addition, David looks at how an application-specific meaning for XML document equivalence can be programmed, and why canonicalization is insufficient.

XForms Basics, Part 3

Harish Kamath, (c)... 78770

XMLIn the previous article, I showed you how to manage user input in the XForms model. I discussed the process of submitting an XForm and – more importantly - validating user input prior to submission using built-in XML Schema support. In this concluding article, find out how to use the <xforms:bind> element to perform calculations on form input values, integrate XPath expressions into your XForms model and get a crash course in the XForms event model.

XForms Basics, Part 2

Harish Kamath, (c)... 69845

In the first part of this series, I gave you a quick introduction to the newly-released XForms 1.0 specification, by explaining the fundamental concepts of the XForms model. Now that you know the basics, find out how to submit XForms data to a server-side script or save it to a local client file, and also read about how XForms can integrate with XML Schemas to simplify input validation.

XForms Basics

Harish Kamath, (c)... 123686

XMLToday, XML is most definitely in the mainstream, and proving its mettle by making all kinds of new and unique applications possible (witness the success of Amazon.com's AWS service, or the Google APIs, both based on XML technology). This article provides an introduction to XForms, a recent W3C Recommendation that suggests using XML to manage the display, input and processing of form data on the Web.

My First XML Document

Gayathri Gokul 112787

We have dealt with some basic XML concepts already, so now we are prepared to leap forward and take a closer look at this powerful language. The X in XML stands for eXtensible- in other words, the language can be extended to meet the requirements of a specific situation.

Introduction To XML

Gayathri Gokul 75188

It's a fact of life that XML, which stands for eXtensible Markup Language, is invading our lives more and more as programmers, and I feel this is a good thing. The reason being XML has the ability to cross all sorts of boundaries, and probably the only chance we have to obtain a truly independent, cross-platform data transfer format.

Doing More With XML Schemas (part 4)

Harish Kamath, (c)... 37919

In this concluding article, find out all about namespaces - what they are, how they work, and how you can use schemas to make sure that they're enforced in a consistent manner.

Doing More With XML Schemas (part 3)

Harish Kamath, (c)... 40942

This article introduces you to the concept of uniqueness in the XML Schema world, showing you how to use built-in schema constructs to enforce uniqueness within your XML document instances.

Doing More With XML Schemas (part 2)

Harish Kamath, (c)... 32324

In this second part, find out how to derive new element types by constraining existing ones, control access to your schema definitions, and redefine externally-provided schemas in place.

Doing More With XML Schemas (part 1)

Harish Kamath, (c)... 37161

Get into the more advanced aspects of XML Schema design with a discussion of simple and complex datatypes, and learn to apply the basic OOP concepts of extensibility and inheritance to your schemas.

XSL Transformation With Xalan

icarus, (c) Melonf... 83443

If you've been following along, you already know how to parse XML documents using both SAX and the DOM with the Java-based Xerces XML parser. But why stop there? In this article, take your Java/XML skills to the next level by converting your XML into other formats with the very powerful Xalan XSLT engine

XML Parsing With DOM and Xerces (part 2)

icarus, (c) Melonf... 69736

In this concluding article of a two-part series, use your knowledge of DOM processing with Xerces to construct simple Web applications based on Xerces, XML and JSP. Examples include transforming an XML file to HTML via Xerces and dynamically generating an XML document tree from a MySQL database.

XML Parsing With DOM and Xerces (part 1)

icarus, (c) Melonf... 179347

The Simple API for XML (SAX) is just one approach to parsing XML. An alternative approach is the Document Object Model (DOM), which builds a data tree in memory for easier, non-sequential access to XML data fragments. In this article, find out how to combine the Java-based Xerces parser with the DOM to create simple Java/XML applications.
