September 3, 2002
At the September 3, 2002 meeting of the Developers SIG we will continue our investigation
of XML with a demonstration of XML Spy, a popular tool used in XML application development.
Keith Alcock will present a program from a recent development project that generates an XML
document and then use XML Spy to create an XML Schema to validate it. The document will
then be "repurposed" and with the help of XSL and XML Spy be transformed into both
HTML and SVG formats.
Keith Alcock has written software for fun and profit (often simultaneously) for over
twenty years. He currently works as a consultant for the likes of
Language Technologies, Inc. with a preference for
the area of computational linguistics. He can be contacted at
In case you weren't able to attend the meeting or want to review parts of
the presentation, you can take a look at an HTML version of the PowerPoint
presentation entitled XML Documents,
Schemas, and Transformations. The presentation was fairly interactive,
involving both software and audience participation. That interaction cannot
be reproduced here, unfortunately. Please come to our meetings!
