Content-centric XML: Coming Soon to an Intranet Near You?
Content-centric XML hasn't followed its original five-year script. Celebrating its fifth birthday as a standard last February, XML was supposed to supplant HTML, shift the burden of processing Web sites from servers to underutilized client PCs, and achieve the holy grail of "create once, reuse many times." Although use of XML to transfer information between applications was one of the World Wide Web Consortium's original goals, emphasis was on content-centric XML: Web pages and documents. What happened in the past five years to divert XML from its original use, and how does this affect plans for your content today? Imagine a worldwide content network where every piece of content on one network node was understandable by every other node.

The Collected ADT Works of Uche Ogbuji
For the past two years, writer, poet, and 'real' football player Uche Ogbuji has expounded, often humorously, on XML and Web services on the pages of Application Development Trends and on our Web site. Click below to read articles and columns from our archives.

Lightweight XML Editing in Word 2003
Did you know that Word documents can be saved in XML format? As of Microsoft Office 2003, the second option in Word's Save As dialog--right under "Word Document (*.doc)"--is "XML Document (*.xml)". This format is Microsoft's own XML vocabulary for Word documents, called WordprocessingML (or sometimes just WordML).

Wrestling HTML
Lately I've seen HTML parsing problems everywhere. One project needed a web crawler with specialized features provided through Python code that processed arbitrary HTML. There have also been several threads on mailing lists I frequent (including XML-SIG) featuring discussions of mechanisms for dealing with broken HTML by converting it to decent XHTML. This article focuses on Python APIs for converting good or bad HTML to XML.

Programmer turns Gmail into blogging tool
A Mexican programmer has figured out how to turn Google's Gmail service into a blog. Jonathan Hernandez posted a demo of his software, called Gallina, together with the open-source code, on his employer's Web site. On his site, Hernandez said the software uses XML and XSLT -- a language to specify how to transform an XML document of one type to another document type. Anyone wanting to take advantage of Gallina would need to install the application on a server, which would then use Gmail to store the posts.

XML: Too much of a good thing?
Despite rumors to the contrary, the adult entertainment industry is not developing its own dialect of Extensible Markup Language dubbed XXXML. Aside from that, it's hard to find an industry or interest that isn't taking advantage of the fast-growing standard for Web services and data exchange. In the six years since the main XML specification was first published, it's spawned hundreds of dialects, or schemas, benefiting everyone from butchers to bulldozer operators wishing to easily exchange information electronically.

IBM Reflexive User Interface Builder
The IBM Reflexive User Interface Builder is an application that constructs and renders graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for Java Swing and Eclipse Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) based upon a descriptive XML document. (Java Swing is a rich GUI toolkit included with Java that provides operating system-independent GUI components. Eclipse SWT is an add-on GUI toolkit that takes advantage of host operating system GUI components for maximum host integration.) IBM Reflexive User Interface Builder is both a specification for a mark-up language in which to describe GUIs and an engine for creating (and, if desired, rendering) them. This application can be used as a stand-alone application for testing and evaluating basic GUI layout and functionality, or it can be used as a library within the context of a Java application for creating and rendering GUIs for that application.

Debug XML Web services in VS.NET
Visual Studio .NET makes developing Web services applications relatively easy, but debugging them is a different story. Learn how to debug your Web service apps using VS.NET. XML Web services are touted by Microsoft as the next big thing. But until recently, developers were hampered in their efforts to effectively develop them, placing the future of the new protocol in some doubt. Fortunately, Visual Studio .NET has made the development and consumption of Web services almost trivial, while making it possible—if not always simple—to debug them.

XML DOM-lite parser and writer
This article provides a simple method for creating valid XML and a simple DOM-like (Document Object Model) parser. This method is useful for small applications that need simple XML functionality without the size and complexity of the full range defined in the XML standards. The methods used to manage the XML data resemble those used to manage vectors, with the goal being to make the interface familiar and simple.

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. If your clients are like mine, the projects that really get their attention are those that eliminate repetitive tasks or save them time and money. If you can help them with all three, as I did on a recent engagement, you've likely endeared yourself to the client.

Screenscraping the Senate
The United States government and the Semantic Web are a perfect match: imagine all of those senators and representatives, each query-able by age, party affiliation, bills proposed, committee membership, and voting record. For the last few years, I've wanted to collect as much data on the U.S. government as I could, convert it to RDF, and build a site and a web service that make it possible to explore that data. This will be my goal over the next year, and I'll document my progress here on

Fallacy and Lunacy
The W3C is a curious beast. While moral in the sense that it evangelizes open standards and accessibility, it is strangely amoral in its obedience to member vendor whim and its insistence on the one true path of W3C-blessed technologies. Both of the topics I tackle this week are results in a way of that latter tendency. In this column I revisit the validation thread on XML-DEV, shaking the "one true way" assumptions on schema usage, and take a swipe at the latest SOAP specifications.

Integrating XML
The way XML has been positioned over the last several years - namely, as some type of savior for companies that have invested in myriad systems with numerous incompatible data types - it makes you wonder why organizations aren't adopting any XML solution they can get their hands on.

Converting XML to RDF
Last month we looked at the REST interface to Amazon Web Services (AWS), and how an f parameter in a URL calling this interface can point to an XSLT stylesheet. If you set it to "xml" instead of pointing it at a stylesheet, Amazon returns data in formats that conform to either the "lite" or "heavy" DTDs (and corresponding schemas) included with their SDK; if you do, their server applies the stylesheet to that data at the server before returning the result to you.

Objectifying an XML Node with an IConfigSectionHandler
One of my favorite B-movies is Back to School, starring Rodney Dangerfield. If you are unfamiliar with the movie, Dangerfield's character Thornton Mellon, a rich clothier for fat people, returns to college. Employing savvy business acumen to get through coursework and exams, he is charged with cheating on finals and is required to take an oral exam. When his love interest and English professor asks him to recite Dylan Thomas's "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night," Mellon recites the poem. Here is an approximation of the dialogue:
