Moving to XML -- Does it mean throwing out your RDB queries?
Bringing relational data into XML formats is a major task for many developers these days. XML has clear benefits as a lingua franca for integration, but it must co-exist with a well-established body of relational DB know-how.

Perspective on XML: Enterprise data goes high-fashion
Data modeling is fashionable. It used to be that all the effort that went into rationalizing software development was focused on code and routines. Of course, database developers worked on low-level DBMS models, but these never became prominent as a general way of looking at the data a business managed. This is because systems architecture and programming have always been in the spotlight more than database management.

XML & DocBook: Structured Technical Documentation Authoring
An introduction to XML and DocBook: what is it and why should I learn yet another data format?

Practical data binding: Converting to and from XML with JaxMe
Brett's last column gave you a solid understanding of the JaxMe API. Build on your understanding as Brett continues by illustrating how to convert XML documents to Java class instances, manipulate the underlying XML data, and then convert the modified data back to XML. This article will give you a solid, working knowledge of JaxMe, and allow you to use it in your application programming.

An overview of the most relevant XML standards used in the localisation industry
Learn how XML standards help facilitate translation processes that involve many participants in different locations. This article focuses on the most common XML formats used in the localisation industry to show you how important XML is becoming in multilingual document exchange.

XML Syndication Supporters Mulling W3C Move
The effort among Atom supporters to create a standard XML syndication format took a new turn this week as the Web's leading standards body suggested a new route. The World Wide Web Consortium invited the Atom community to form a working group under its auspices, rather than within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Atom proponents since have been pursuing the formation of a working group in the IETF, a first step toward creating a formal standard.

Constraining Validation
The vacation season has brought renewed vigor in discussion among XML developers. A recent thread about validation illustrated one of the most useful properties of XML-DEV as a community: technical discussions often evolve to encompass the wider context of practice in which they are relevant.

Scripting XML
In Part 1 of this article we looked at how XML can be scripted using Internet Explorer. In Part 2 we take a look at how the same application, a weather page, can be created using the XML capabilities in Flash. The resulting Flash page can be view by clicking here.

XML vs XML - Communication vs data storage
If you are up-to-date on XML features in RDBMSs, then you know that ASE, Oracle, DB2, and SQL Server are leapfrogging each other in a race to add XML features to their relational databases. With each new release comes a new array of features. If I were to read a competitive analysis of the products, I'd have to ask what day it was written on in order to know which point release of each product is being covered. The products are changing that quickly.

Checkmate XML
As I explained last month, in my final XML Q&A; column, my new monthly column will focus on the ways people use XML. The XML ocean is a big one, populated with a good number of whales (EDI, web services, RDF, and so on). But there are also plenty of pilot fish and guppies swimming around -- on up to lesser whales that you may simply have missed. It's these unsung applications I'm interested in.

Identifying Atom
Atom is an emerging standard for XML workflow: web editing, web publishing (including syndication), and archiving. It has recently become the basis of an IETF working group, co-chaired by Paul Hoffman and Tim Bray. (Yes, that Tim Bray). Since joining the IETF, the formerly ad-hoc but relatively noisy mailing list has exploded into a cacophony of ideas and opinions.

Working XML: UML, XMI, and code generation, Part 4
In this final article in his series on UML and XML, Benoît wraps up the technique. He discusses the need to simplify the model by burying some of the logic in the XSLT stylesheet. He also points out several common pitfalls. Share your thoughts on this article with the author and other readers in the accompanying discussion forum. (You can also click Discuss at the top or bottom of the article to access the forum.)

CTO on quest for Holy Grail of content management
Ben Chen, CTO at Snapbridge Software, an XML technology start-up in San Diego County, Calif., adds another Holy Grail to the list -- content management of all text and graphics for the publishing industry. He calls this goal of creating content once and automatically publishing it in multiple print and electronic formats "cross media." The good news, Chen says, is XML tools and technologies are close to making cross-media management a reality.

On mapping from colloquial XML to RDF using XSLT
An application of XML or SGML defines what some people call a markup language, and other people would prefer to refer to as a markup vocabulary or namespace. Since some people prefer to reserve the term markup language for meta-languages like XML and SGML, the following discussion will use the term vocabulary — without, however, intending to obscure the fact that the XML-based applications in question do have rules that go beyond the provision of names and may be captured in whole or in part by syntactic formalisms.

DITA - The mechanics of a single sourcing project.
One of the greatest challenges facing technical communicators is delivering multiple quality documentation products (such as procedure manuals, reference guides, training material) as soon as the product being documented is delivered. Before getting into how implementing DITA and XML helped meeting these challenges at CEDROM-SNi, we must define the specific challenges in more detail. This paper introduces some of the most important challenges met by technical communicators, and then some specific to CEDROM-SNi's project. That first part is followed by a very quick introduction to DITA and to the processes involved in implementing DITA for this specific project. Benefits and lessons learned are reviewed against the identified challenges.

Introducing the Reflexive User Interface Builder
The IBM Reflexive User Interface Builder (RIB), a new technology available from alphaWorks, is an application and toolkit for building and rendering Java AWT/Swing and Eclipse SWT GUIs. RIB specifies a flexible and easy-to-use XML markup language for describing Java GUIs and provides an engine for creating them. You can use RIB to test and evaluate basic GUI layout and functionality, or to create and render GUIs for an application.

XML Matters: Describe XML content with the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative
The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is a standardized vocabulary for handling information about documents. In general, the DCMI vocabulary defines a hierarchy of terms that describe the purpose, context, and origin of a document (rather than describing the document itself). David shows you how DCMI provides a set of metadata primitives that you can reuse (through namespaces) in broader XML vocabularies, such as RSS variants. Various standards, including those from ISO and NISO, have adopted parts of DCMI.

Principles of XML design: Element structures for names and addresses
A critical issue in designing XML formats is figuring out how to arrange elements and represent relationships between them. Element design works best when it naturally corresponds to how people think about the concepts that each element represents. This article discusses best practices for organizing information into XML elements, focusing on representation of names and addresses.

Banking on a Standard
One of the basic challenges of XML developers is formulating best practices and design guides for defining their XML content. This is especially pervasive in industry communities, which is why there has been a growth of community-based XML specifications and standards.
