Microsoft Office System and XML: XML in Action
Over the past few years, much was written about XML and the positive effect that widespread adoption of XML will have on business and business processes. While many companies and industries have seen great benefit from the use of XML, primarily for exchanging data between back-end servers, the introduction of XML-enabled desktop applications with support for customer-defined schemas carries the potential for even greater benefit. The Microsoft Office System enhances XML support in the 2003 versions of the Office applications and introduces new applications, which put XML in the hands of the information worker and enable businesses to reap the full benefit and promise of this revolutionary technology.

Document Validation in XML.NET
The XmlValidatingReader class is an implementation of the XmlReader class that provides support for several types of XML validation: Document Type Definitions (DTD), XML-Data Reduced (XDR) schemas, and XML Schemas (XSD). You can use the XmlValidatingReader class to validate entire XML documents as well as XML fragments.

A Simple Way to Write XML in .NET (XmlTextWriter)
XML is a hot topic. A primary reason for it being of interest is the fact that it is simple to understand and simple to use. Any programmer should be able to easily look at an XML file and understand its contents.

Working with XML in Managed C++
In my last column, I showed you how to use MSXML4, the COM component that parses, searches, and generates XML, to work with XML in a "classic Visual C++" application. This time around I'm going to tackle the same tasks, but use the .NET Framework to process XML.

Do tools matter?
The hammer stands as one of the greatest tools of all time -- it is still a welcomed companion in many a toolbox today. But its history is not unspotted. Recall Ned Ludd who famously took to hammering his workbench in the early 1800s. That kind of love-hate relationship endures today in software development tools. Some bench-level developers are not slow to criticize tools as unwanted. Many can do more with simple command line development software (“Give me emacs or give me death!”), they say. In the days when hiring programmers was nearly impossible, programmers held more sway. Then, as now, development managers look for tools that can ultimately reduce project costs, maintenance costs and time to market.

Reporter's Notebook: XML: Real thing, taken for granted
The first article in this series was “Do tools matter?” featured in the February issue. An XML thread of note emerged during those discussions, and it sent us from cogitation of tools in general to meditation upon XML in particular. Why XML? It is the paradigm shift that is already happening. Yes, it has passed its fifth birthday; however, that means enough cogs and wheels are moving to make it useful. It is also old enough to be under the radar of the proverbial hype-meisters (which may or may not include those who tend to prefer the term "Web services" to "XML").

XML tools: Who knows where or when?
One of XML’s core strengths can also become a source of confusion. People have begun using the language for so many different things -- structured and unstructured content, app integration and workflow -- that the ways in which developers work with it vary widely.

GUIs and XML configuration data: A look at the use of XML in Mac OS X and KDE
Over time, XML has permeated many niches. One area where XML is used increasingly is in the configuration of graphical user interfaces, especially in elements that are persistent but should not be fixed at compile-time. In this installment, David looks at the use of XML in Mac OS X's Aqua GUI, and in the K Desktop Environment (KDE) which is either standard or available in most modern Linux distributions.

XPath Selections and Custom Functions, and More
In the .NET Framework, XPath evaluation is exposed through the XPathNavigator abstract class. The .NET Framework ships only two implementations of XPathNavigator: one that operates on the standard W3C DOM implementation (XmlNode) and another that operates on an in-memory tree representation called XPathDocument. Both implementations load the entire tree into memory before you can begin evaluating XPath expressions.

Writing XML Providers for Microsoft .NET
Roughly five years ago Microsoft introduced the Universal Data Access (UDA) architecture, which promised to simplify working with enterprise data. The UDA strategy promoted exposing data through a single suite of COM interfaces known collectively as OLE DB, the idea being that a single suite of interfaces lowers the bar for consumers and makes it easier for them to access a variety of supported data stores whether they are relational or nonrelational. In an OLE DB-centric world, consumers no longer needed to worry about learning the details of native (data source-specific) APIs.

Advanced Type Mappings
XmlSerializer can map XML Schema's sequence and all compositors quite logically to Microsoft® .NET Framework class definitions, but choice requires a bit of special attention. Xsd:choice indicates that a single choice of numerous particles is allowed at a given location within a complex type. For example, consider the XML Schema complex type definition shown in Figure 1.

XmlCsvReader Implementation
XmlCsvReader is a sample implementation of an XmlReader that parses tab-delimited .csv files and presents their contents as a stream of XML elements; XmlReader is the Microsoft .NET Framework base class for all managed stream-level XML processing.

My XML, Your Browser
Sometime between the holiday turkey and the turkey soup, I polished off a Web-based scheduling application that utilized the new XML functionality within Internet Explorer 5. Proud of myself, I phoned up a colleague and had him take a look. He was a little annoyed at my timing, but he nevertheless humored me and took a peak at my new site. He wasn't very impressed.

Expanded XML Support in Internet Explorer 5
About a year ago today, I first got "Extreme" with you, giving you advice on how to turn good information about bad music into well-formed XML. Well, I thought I'd wax nostalgic and give you a sense of how far we've come together. There'll be a few good, old-fashioned flashbacks. And, there'll be some good new stuff: expanded XML support in Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5.

You say Tomato, I say My:Tomato

As you probably know by now, the whole concept behind XML is to enable you to mark up your data semantically. This means that you can have tags, such as <purchase_order>, that describe the data within the tags. This works fine on a local scale (if the application scope is limited), but XML is made for a more global arena: the Web. In the vastness of the Web, <purchase_order> loses its specific meaning, since there are probably innumerable XML documents with <purchase_order> tags. These <purchase_order> tags can then refer to content that may be completely different in terms of logical and physical structure.

Parsing and Sharing
A couple of weeks ago, I spoke to a large company about XML. The point of this talk was to describe the extent of Microsoft's XML parser support and to give the Microsoft® Visual Basic®, Visual C++®, Java, and Web developers within the company an idea as to where XML fits into their world. This article explains some of the points that I made during this talk.

Describe Your Data
I must admit that over the past year I've had mixed feelings concerning this whole validation thing. The well-formedness part I get. A few simple rules, when followed, allow a parser to understand where a tag begins and where it ends, what's a comment and what's text. The validation part, though, is a bit trickier.
