XML Web Service Caching Strategies
Despite advancements in network and processor speeds, performance remains a key concern among application developers. So whether you are writing an XML Web service, pushing image bitmaps to a video card, or even engineering that next great processing chip, you will invariably want to consider utilizing a universal mechanism for improving performance: a cache.

XML Web Services and the MSDN Pencil Company
In the three previous At Your Service columns, Scott and I have demonstrated how an industry could create a common XML Web service interface for purchasing the standard products for the industry. Our approach was quite simplistic in order to demonstrate with minimal overhead the technical aspects of:

XML component streamlines client's order entry system
By using XML programming, Excel, Access, and Active Server Pages, one consultant automated a client's order entry process, cut the time the client had to spend rekeying data, and eliminated order entry errors.

Basic XML and RDF techniques for knowledge management, Part 1
Columnist Uche Ogbuji begins his practical exploration of knowledge management with XML by illustrating techniques for populating Resource Description Framework (RDF) models with data from existing XML formats. As shown in the three code listings, RDF can be used as a companion to customized XML, not just as a canonical representation for certain types of data. This column, with code samples included, demonstrates how easy it can be to jump-start knowledge management with RDF even relatively late in the development game.

Thinking XML: XML meets semantics, Part 2
In this column, Uche Ogbuji completes his introduction to XML and semantics, setting the stage for the more practical columns that will follow. Thinking XML addresses knowledge management aspects of XML, including metadata, semantics, Resource Description Framework (RDF), Topic Maps, and autonomous agents. Approaching the topic from a practical perspective, the column aims to reach programmers rather than philosophers.

Thinking XML: XML meets semantics, Part 1
This discussion of XML and semantics kicks off a column by Uche Ogbuji on knowledge management aspects of XML, including metadata, semantics, Resource Description Framework (RDF), Topic Maps, and autonomous agents. Approaching the topic from a practical perspective, the column aims to reach programmers rather than philosophers.

Microsoft Submits XML Standard
Microsoft submitted a network protocol for XML communication between Windows and non-Microsoft systems to the Internet Engineering Task Force on Tuesday.

XML in Microsoft Office Word 2003
Several years ago I began a new book project and decided to write the entire project in XML. I figured that producing the book in XML would allow me to reuse the content elsewhere, transform the content into different output formats, and make it easy to manipulate with myriad XML technologies including XPath, XSLT, the various XML APIs, and possibly even XQuery.

Using Python modules xml2sql and dtd2sql
An earlier column explored the generation of XML documents from SQL queries. Now David Mertz shows that the reverse direction of translating an XML document and DTD back into an RDBMS storage format is equally possible, but with its own set of constraints and complications. The Python public-domain utilities xml2sql and dtd2sql discussed here generate SQL statements to create and fill a database in a consistent and reversible fashion. Seven code samples demonstrate the techniques.

Humans should not have to grok XML
Today the computing world tends toward using XML for any and all formal specifications and data descriptions. The author, a big fan of XML, asks a blasphemous question: "Is XML totalitarianism a good idea?" In this opinion piece, Terence Parr, co-founder of jGuru, demonstrates that XML makes a lousy human interface. He also provides questions to ask yourself to determine if XML is appropriate even for your project's program-to-program interface needs.

Basic XML and RDF techniques for knowledge management, Part 7
Uche Ogbuji takes a moment to review in a broader context the relevance of the XML/RDF techniques he has been presenting. He discusses the importance of XML/RDF interchange, of specialized RDF query, and of applying lessons from RDF modeling to overall application development. He also shows how this thread of the Thinking XML column relates to the parallel thread on developments toward semantic transparency.

What's New in MSXML 4.0
The Microsoft® XML Parser (MSXML) 4.0 is full of new features and functionality related to XML Schema and SAX. XML Schema Definition (XSD) validation and reflection are the most significant of these, but there are many others that deserve attention as well. So even if you're still living in the reality of the "unmanaged" world, MSXML is full of improvements that will help you enhance your XML-based applications today.

XML Wrapper Template: Transform XML Documents into Visual Basic Classes
The XML Wrapper template described in this article transforms XML documents into Visual Basic classes, hiding the more complex parts of using the Microsoft XML parser. Developers who have little knowledge of XML or the Microsoft XML parser can use classes created with the template, thus making it easier to use XML in their projects. This article describes the template, shows classes in a sample application based on the template, and explains how to customize those classes to support repeating child elements. Although this project is illustrated using Visual Basic 6.0, the technique can be extended for use with other versions of Visual Basic and with other languages.

Lessons from the Component Wars: An XML Manifesto
This article discusses how component technology evolved and how eXtensible Markup Language (XML) will become widely used as a way for software components to interoperate, in essence acting as a gateway between autonomous, heterogeneous systems.

Understanding XML
Learn how the Extensible Markup Language (XML) facilitates universal data access. XML is a plain-text, Unicode-based meta-language: a language for defining markup languages. It is not tied to any programming language, operating system, or software vendor. XML provides access to a plethora of technologies for manipulating, structuring, transforming and querying data.

XML Report from the Microsoft PDC 2003
This issue marks three years of The XML Files. As I reminisce over my personal XML journey and how simply it all began, I'm astonished at how firmly rooted XML is in today's software development landscape. I always said "XML will change the world," but only after reflection did I realize that it has actually happened. XML was everywhere at the November 2003 PDC. There weren't many sessions that didn't at least mention XML or some other new "X" technology. Although Microsoft has always been a leader in XML, their innovative use of XML in future technologies highlights their commitment to interoperability. In this installment of The XML Files, I'll summarize the juicy XML activity at the PDC.

XML Data Migration Case Study: GEDCOM
XML's ubiquity and continually improving tool support has created a magnetism that attracts organizations everywhere. As organizations move to XML, they must also provide a coherent data migration strategy that allows their users to bring old files forward. This is a nontrivial problem that typically requires tedious code to implement the transformation process. The System.Xml namespace in the Microsoft® .NET Framework, however, can greatly simplify these data migration challenges through its extensible APIs and support for XSLT.

Understand the web.xml and portlet.xml files
With all of the magic that goes on in the WebSphere® Portal Web interface, it's easy to forget that at its heart, a portlet application is just a collection of servlets and their supporting classes, strung together using the web.xml and portlet.xml files. As we moved to customize the experience, we realized that understanding just how these two files fit together was crucial to controlling items such as the initial title of a portlet window. This article explains the major pieces of these two files and how they control what you see in your portlet application.

Leveraging XML Knowledge to Design, Develop, and Deploy Speech Applications
The voice solutions market is fueled by the rapidly growing number of consumers who want easy anytime, anywhere access to information and services via any device - wireline or wireless. With more than 1.5 billion phones and over 800 million mobile device users and 1 billion landline accounts worldwide, the telephone has become the ultimate access device to the Internet.
