Caveat Incumbent
In this week's XML-Deviant, we take a look at two conversations on the XML-DEV mailing list that highlight XML's disruptive aspect -- more specifically, the disturbance XML can cause to the dominant incumbent in a technology area in which XML is being introduced.

Describe open source projects with XML, Part 4
In this installment of XML Watch, Edd Dumbill concludes the development of a vocabulary for describing open source software projects, exploring the documentation, tools, and community that are required for the successful launch of the DOAP vocabulary. The steps taken are drawn from the author's experience with both open source projects and vocabularies such as FOAF and RSS.

Improve performance in your XML applications, Part 1
Write your application to get the best possible performance, plus learn which SAX or DOM operations and features affect application performance. In this first of a three-part article, authors Elena Litani and Michael Glavassevich describe best practices for writing XML apps and documents, and for developing applications with the standard SAX and DOM APIs.

From English to Dutch?
I need to translate text in an XML document from English to Dutch. The XML document in question is used as a language file in vBulletin forum software. The problem is that I have to get the text to be translated out of the XML code and, after translation, back into the code in the right place.

Decomposition, Process, Recomposition
One unfortunate side-effect of the success of XML is that some users tend to just throw all their familiar data-processing tasks into XML shapes without pausing much to consider the strengths and weaknesses of XML.

Loading XML into Gecko-based browsers
Most Web developers think of Microsoft Internet Explorer and either MSXML2 or MSXML3 when asked about client-side XML. But for client-side XML support, there is an alternative to MSXML, namely Gecko.

Persist data with the XMLSerializer class
Microsoft recognised the need to persist data by including serialisation functionality in the .NET Framework with the System.Runtime.Serialization, which provides the framework for developing custom serialisation solutions, and the System.Xml.Serialization namespaces. The System.Xml.Serialization namespace provides the basic functionality of persisting an object as XML. Let's take a closer look at using this approach.

7 Keys to Cleaning Up Your XML Code
Crap in, crap out -- it’s an axiom that applies to many aspects of enterprise development, but none more so than building reliable and robust web applications and integration projects with Extensible Markup Language (XML). Since its inception, XML has been seen as the cure-all for every problem related to web applications and integration projects. However, “crappy,” poorly written XML can either slow down an integration project, or worse, cause the integration project to collapse.

UML, XMI, and code generation, Part 3
In the third article on UML modeling and XML, Benoît further refines the conversion stylesheet with the introduction of stereotypes and tags. These are extension mechanisms for UML that are used to store implementation information in the model. 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.)

XML programming in Java technology, Part 3
This advanced tutorial covers more sophisticated topics for manipulating XML documents with Java technology. Author Doug Tidwell shows you how to do tasks such as generate XML data structures, manipulate those structures, and interface XML parsers with non-XML data sources. As you'd expect, all of the examples are based on open standards.

XML programming in Java technology, Part 2
In an earlier tutorial, Doug Tidwell looked at the basics of XML parsing in the Java language. He covered the major APIs (DOM, SAX, and JDOM), and went through a number of examples that demonstrated the basic tasks common to most XML applications. In this tutorial, he looks at more difficult things that weren't covered in Part 1, such as working with namespaces, validating XML documents, building XML structures without a typical XML document, converting between one API and another, and manipulating tree structures. He also shows you some of the more esoteric features of DOM, SAX, JDOM, and JAXP.

XML-based Security Information Feeds
Gathering security-related information can sometimes become a tedious task. One way people use to help automate the task is to use a feed reader application, which can check a multitude a sites to gather the latest headlines regarding content editions.

XML on the Web Has Failed
XML is predicated on two main strengths. First, publishers can use any character in the world, natively and efficiently, by declaring the character encoding that makes the most sense for their content. English publishers can use an ASCII encoding and store each character in one byte. But Russian publishers can use an encoding such as KOI8-R, and they can store their Cyrillic characters each in one byte. Publishers that don't know what language they'll be dealing with can use "universal" encodings like UTF-8 or UTF-16. Second, consumers can use off-the-shelf parsing libraries that can assume well-formed XML as input.

Introducing o:XML
Most of us tend to think of XML as a useful, general-purpose data format. New vocabularies are springing up all the time, as do tools for XML processing. Still we haven't yet realized the potential of XML as a facilitator in the software development process itself.

Designing Extensible, Versionable XML Formats
An XML vocabulary should be designed in such a way that the applications that process it do not break when it is inevitably changed. One of the primary benefits of using XML for building data interchange formats is that the APIs and technologies for processing XML are quite resilient when faced with additions to vocabularies.

Performance Optimizations for the XML Data Type
(Shankar Pal, Vasili Zolotov and Leo Giakoumakis) Microsoft SQL Server 2005 provides extensive support for XML data processing. XML data can be stored natively in an XML data type column, which can be typed according to a collection of XML schemas, or left untyped. Fine-grained data manipulation is supported using XQuery, an emerging W3C standard query language currently in Last Call, and XML data modification language. The XML column can be indexed to improve query performance. Enterprise applications are increasingly using XML for modeling semi-structured and unstructured data, and will benefit from the XML support in SQL Server 2005.

C#/XML based state engine
Being tasked to look into ways of updating old C++ software, I needed to implement a simple state engine in C#. Wanting to create a generic solution that I can use throughout the code, I looked into having the actual state table written in XML along with a generic engine to process the table using reflection.

Multithreaded XML Document for Read/Write Access
This article describes a process for using a ThreadPool within a windows service that monitors other services. It also shows how to allow multithreaded read/write access to an XmlDocument, that acts as persistent storage, using a Mutex. The windows services that I'm monitoring here just happen to be web applications based on a Java application server. So, what I do is check a page running within the service to see if (a) it doesn't timeout or (b) doesn't match the text that it expects to see. If that is the case, I assume the service is down, or in an error state and I restart the service.

Easy XML Publishing into Your Enterprise Portal
(Sue Vickers and Peter Moskovits) Enterprise portals provide a single interface to aggregated and componentized information. They significantly reduce the navigational issues inherent with Web sites and make it easier to publish information from disparate sources. The basic building blocks of enterprise portals are portlets, which are reusable, personalized Web components displaying content from various data sources.

Tools to tame XML content
(Ed Scannell and Cathleen Moore) IBM later this month will demonstrate Project Cinnamon, the company's content management technology designed to ease document management and storage through XML tagging. Big Blue plans to ship a version of Project Cinnamon this fall, bundling it into DB2 Content Manager. Toward that end, IBM last week shipped an early beta of the software tool to a handful of corporate users and business partners.
