XML

XML™

Extensible Markup Language™ (XML) is a general-purpose specification for creating custom markup languages. It is classified as an extensible language because it allows its users to define their own elements. Its primary purpose is to help information systems share structured data, particularly via the Internet, and it is used both to encode documents and to serialize data.

    Programmers are finding that the XMI extension of the XML standard provides a lot more flexibility in writing software for sharing data. Written by one of the principal authors of XMI, this book provides programmers with everything they need to know to best utilize this extension. The authors cover the basics first, detailing the essential concepts and explaining how XMI relates to XML and UML. Readers will then learn how to program with XMI, including how to express data in XMI, create XMI documents with Java, and merge documents. Samples of real-world XMI applications are also included throughout the book that show how IBM is using XMI with data warehousing and how to convert simple relational databases into XMI.

    CD-ROM includes sample XMI source code and software tools for developing XMI and XML applications.
