1 XML Technology in E-Commerce
Lecture 8 Current Developments in the XML World

2 Outline Semantic Web and RDF; Modularization;
XML Information Set; Semantic Web and RDF; Modularization; Composite Capabilities/Preference Profile (CC/PP); XML Query Language; Web Services; Composable XML;

3 XML Infoset Several logical models for XML documents:
DOM; XPath; XPointer; XML Information Set (Infoset) defines abstract data model for XML documents; Other specifications will refer to the XML Infoset; Model - a hierarchy of information items with named properties and their values; Different applications can extend the initial infoset (Schema processor, XLink processor, etc.); Resources -

4 Semantic Web Goal - representation of machine understandable data on the Web; Technologies: Resource Description Framework (RDF) Ontologies (Vocabularies of concepts organized in a hierarchy); Inference mechanism; Resources - Subject Object Predicate RDF Statement Model

5 Modularization XHTML XHTML ( Modules for:
Reformulation of HTML in XML; Framework for creation of language families based on XHTML; Subsets and supersets of XHTML; Module is a definition of element and attribute names and types and element content models; Modules for: Text, List, Tables; Images, Applets; Forms, Style;

6 Modularization SMIL Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), Modules for: Animation; Timing; Transitions; Animation Effects; Layout; Media Elements;

7 Modularization Hybrid Languages
XHTML SMIL SVG MathML Table Text List Image Timing Animation Effects XHTML Subset + Hybrid Document - incorporates elements from multiple vocabularies; New document languages can be developed by composing multiple modules;

8 Authoring for Multiple Target Devices
Voice Generator Desktop Browser XML Document Mobile Phone Palm Web content is intended for multiple consumer devices with different capabilities

9 CC/PP Composite Capabilities/Preference Profile (CC/PP);
CC/PP provides vocabulary for client features specification; Client and server can negotiate the content on the base of CC/PP descriptions; Server can adapt the content for different clients, e.g. on the base of supported modules; CC/PP will be RDF application; Resources -

10 XML Query Language Purpose - language for query specification that extracts data from XML documents; Required specifications: Data model; Query algebra; Query language; Query languages: XQL; XML Query; XQuery (work in progress in W3C); Resources -

11 Web Services WWW: Today: resources intended for human consumption; In the future: composition of modular services, with machine understandable information; Web service - collection of functions accessible from network through standard protocol; Related technologies: UDDI - Universal Discovery, Description and Integration; WSDL - Web Services Description Language; SOAP - Simple Object Access Protocol;

12 Composable XML S1 D1 I1 S2 D2 I2 S3 D3 I3 Schema XML Document

13 Composable XML Based on:
Recent modularization technology; XML interpretation techniques; Advanced software composition techniques (Composition Filters, Aspect Orientation); Intended to cope with evolution and adaptation problems with XML documents and the corresponding software; Can be used for generic “browsers” for a family of languages in a certain problem domain (Web, eCommerce); Project home -
