[announce] Dear XML Schema Dev, A new XML tutorial by Dr. Kay entitled: "Buiding XML Workflow Applications" has been published at: The article argues that the bulk of the application logic required for typical XML workflow applications can be modeled using XML schema, then implemented in high-level XML processing languages, notably XSLT and XQuery, with individual components linked together in a pipeline processing framework. By writing the logic in these high-level languages (rather than say Java or C#), the biggest benefit you gain is flexibility and adaptability - the ability to change the application in response to changing business needs. XML gives you this flexibility in terms of data design; don't lose it by writing applications that freeze the data structure into Java or C# classes. Building XML Workflow Applications covers the following topics: • Modeling XML Workflow Applications • Choosing a Centralized or Decentralized Architecture • The Life-Cycle of a Document • Finding Resources using Directory Services Markup Language • Writing XML Workflow Applications Read the article online at:
