QuiX-Tool Suite » Processing XML Streams and Documents Welcome to the home page of QuiX-Tool Suite. The QuiX-Tool Suite provides tools to process XML streams and documents. Stream means the XML input is processed event by event like in SAX interface. ISO 25964 ISO 25964 is the international standard for thesauri, published in two parts as follows: ISO 25964 Information and documentation - Thesauri and interoperability with other vocabularies Part 1: Thesauri for information retrieval [published August 2011] Part 2: Interoperability with other vocabularies [published March 2013] It was issued by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, and its official website  is maintained by its Secretariat in NISO, the USA National Information Standards Organization. Each part of the standard can be purchased separately from ISO or from any of its national member bodies (such as ANSI, BSI, AFNOR, DIN, etc.). Some parts of it are available free of charge from the official website. History
Serializing data speed comparison: Marshal vs. JSON vs. Eval vs. YAML - Paul Dix Explains Nothing Last night at the NYC Ruby hackfest, I got into a discussion about serializing data. Brian mentioned the Marshal library to me, which for some reason had completely escaped my attention until last night. He said it was wicked fast so we decided to run a quick benchmark comparison. The test data is designed to roughly approximate what my stored classifier data will look like. The different methods we decided to benchmark were Marshal, json, eval, and yaml. With each one we took the in-memory object and serialized it and then read it back in. Extensible Markup Language (XML) Nearby: XML Specifications and Translations of them. Introduction Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a simple, very flexible text format derived from SGML (ISO 8879). Originally designed to meet the challenges of large-scale electronic publishing, XML is also playing an increasingly important role in the exchange of a wide variety of data on the Web and elsewhere. This page describes the work being done at W3C within the XML Activity, and how it is structured.
Human interface guidelines Human interface guidelines (HIG) are software development documents which offer application developers a set of recommendations. Their aim is to improve the experience for the users by making application interfaces more intuitive, learnable, and consistent. Most guides limit themselves to defining a common look and feel for applications in a particular desktop environment. C XML Query (XQuery) Architects XQuery for the systems analyst or architect The W3C XML Query Working Group worked with the W3C XML Schema Working Group and the W3C XSL Working Group to make a set of specifications that all work together. Use XQuery to take data from multiple databases, from XML files, from remote Web documents, even from CGI scripts, and to produce XML results that you can process with XSLT. Use XQuery on the back-end of a Web server, or to generate Enterprise-wide executive reports. Examples of XML Query In Action
RDF Overview RDF is a standard model for data interchange on the Web. RDF has features that facilitate data merging even if the underlying schemas differ, and it specifically supports the evolution of schemas over time without requiring all the data consumers to be changed. RDF extends the linking structure of the Web to use URIs to name the relationship between things as well as the two ends of the link (this is usually referred to as a “triple”). After XML, JSON: Then What? The need for a format to serialize data is as old as networking itself. In the early days of data processing, the problem was attacked by use of binary protocols — that is, protocols with data that was not human readable. These were frequently custom-defined on an ad hoc basis. The sender and receiver had to agree on where fields were located and what they contained in order to exchange data. These schemes eventually gave way, in part, to emerging standards such as ASN.1.
Java Web Services Tutorial - Free Book Download Introduction to Web Services Maydene Fisher WEB services, in the general meaning of the term, are services offered via the Web. In a typicalWeb services scenario, a business application sends a request to a service at a given URL using the SOAP protocol over HTTP. The service receives the request, processes it, and returns a response. An often-cited example of aWeb service is that of a stock quote service, in which the request asks for the current price of a specified stock, and the response gives the stock price. Application programming interface For the MediaWiki (the software used by Wikipedia) API, see mw:API In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) is a set of subroutine definitions, protocols, and tools for building software and applications. A good API makes it easier to develop a program by providing all the building blocks, which are then put together by the programmer.

thoughts on Software Engineering If you’ve written anything but a hello world application your familiar with the concept of object serialization. If you hope to persist objects in files or pass them over the network they must first be serialized into a stream of bytes. Obviously the fastest way to do this is through a direct binary serialize of your in memory object. You can imagine this would be fastest since you literally do no work to produce the stream of bytes.
