XML Meets Java...and Meta Data
One of the problems with XML today is that, while there is a tremendous amount of exciting work going on, there are very few easy places to demonstrate it in action. Which is a shame because while XML is conceptually quite complex, its application is really very straightforward.

Web developers have had to deal with an astounding amount of technical change over the last three years. As the Web has expanded to include more and more of the technical landscape, it has accreted more and more complexity. Add in a vicious war to set browser standards, and the job of building Web sites has strayed far from its initial simplicity.

XML - Just another TLA?
XML. Possibly the most highly vaunted TLA of the 21st century thus far. Religious wars continue on value-vs-attribute - even I'll join in on that argument given half a chance. Systems everywhere are burning CSV logs on pyres in the race for XML as an output format. Relational databases are being contorted to support the storage and querying of this data. At this rate, the angle bracket will outstrip the full-stop as the most commonly used punctuation mark by the end of 2006. (OK, so I made the last one up, but it wouldn't surprise me).

Performance Optimizations for the XML Data Type
This paper covers several ideas, which are designed to improve query and data modification performance of the XML data type in the upcoming version of Microsoft SQL Server 2005. To get the most value from this paper, you need familiarity with the XML features in SQL Server 2005; see the MSDN article XML Support in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 for background material.

XML Namespaces Support in Python Tools, Part Three
In the last two articles I've discussed namespace handling in Python 2.3's SAX and minidom libraries and in 4Suite. In this article I focus on ElementTree, libxml/Python and PyRXPU. I recommend reading or reviewing those articles first, as well as the earlier articles in this namespace series (part 1 and part 2).

Perspective on XML: Steady steps spell success with Google
Google has always been a marvel to those of us whose living revolves around high technology. When the beta emerged, we quickly passed our colleagues the tip about this new search engine with the mercifully simple front end and the uncanny ability to return the most relevant results for most searches. As time went on, and Google became an indispensable tool in our trade, we began to clue in our less-technical acquaintances. Google is a technology even our grandmothers can use. Like an oracle, you express what you seek in simple terms, never minding the underlying magic; unlike an oracle, however, you don’t have to bring an offering before you’re seen, and the answers are generally informative and not couched in puzzles.

Practical XML data design and manipulation for voting systems: EVM2003 brings XML to the democratic
In this installment, David discusses his practical experiences developing interrelated XML data formats for the EVM2003 Free Software project to develop voting machines that produce voter-verifiable paper ballots. Some design principles of format subsetting emerge. In addition, David looks at how an application-specific meaning for XML document equivalence can be programmed, and why canonicalization is insufficient.

Creating XML with Genx
Genx is an easy-to-use C library for generating well-formed XML output. In addition to being well-formed, Genx writes all output in canoncial form. It was created by Tim Bray with help from members of the xml-dev mail list. Work on Genx was announced on xml-dev on 19 January 2004. Some of the benefits of Genx include size, efficiency, speed, and the integrity of its output. Genx is well documented; it's fairly easy to figure out what's going on just by looking at the well-commented source code.

Managing XML libraries
Libraries of text have always been the framework for knowledge and learning in human societies. Important developments throughout history have fueled great leaps forward in civilization. Clay tablets of the Sumerians, Babylonians and Assyrians in Ur (in modern-day Iraq), and papyrus scrolls in Thebes in New Kingdom Egypt took the gathering of texts to the greatest extent possible given the fragile material used for books in the period. Library establishment mixed thoroughly with politics in Egyptian Alexandria (under heavy Greek influence) and the great library of parchment was born. But a key contribution came from Rome, not so much in content, nor in format.

Converting JDBC Result Sets to XML
XML has become the common format for passing data between components residing on different platforms. With the move to XML-based services, developers often find themselves converting various data structures to and from XML. Arguably, the most prevalent form of persisting data is in relational databases. How does one go about converting relational data structures into XML? In this article, we'll do just that and build a utility to expose relational data as XML documents.
