[announce] Dear XML and Web Service Community - Stylus Studio has published an XML Schema Library containing a comprehensive listing of industry-specific schema vocabularies and OASIS Catalogs. These reference materials which include complete data type information and XML schema documentation are available to help you in working with your XML content. The following schema vocabularies have been published:

  • Agricultural Markup Language 1.0
  • Chemical Markup Language Schemas (CML)
  • Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) 1.3.2 Schemas
  • ebXML 3.0 Schemas
  • Genealogical Exchange File Format 1.0 Schemas
  • Global Justice XML Data Model 3.0.3 Schemas
  • Google Base and Google Sitemap Schemas
  • GraphML 1.0 Schemas
  • HR-XML Consortium Library 2.4 Schemas
  • Mathematical Markup Language 2.0 Schemas (MathML)
  • Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization Schemas (MISMO)
  • Microsoft Office 2003 Suite Schemas
  • Maven Schemas
  • Petroleum Industry Data Exchange Schemas
  • Research Information Exchange Markup Language Schemas (RIXML)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics 1.1 Schemas (SVG)
  • Universal Business Language Schemas (UBL)
  • Universal Description, Discovery and Integration 1.0 Schemas (UDDI)
  • Voice Extensible Markup Language 2.0 Schemas
  • Web3D Standard Schemas
  • Simple Object Access Protocol and Web Services Description Language Schemas
  • eXtensible Business Reporting Language 2.1 Schemas (XBRL)
  • XForms 1.0 and XEvents Schemas
  • Extensible HyperText Markup Language 1.0 Schemas (XHTML)
  • Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP/Jabber) Schemas


  • One of the benefits of using XML Schema is that it supports a modular design through use of user-defined type definitions, a flexible namespace mechanism, and the ability to easily import and include XML schema libraries. XML Schema is thus designed to promote the reuse of data models. So, if you're working on an industry specific XML application, consider using an existing industry standard XML data model instead of starting from scratch each time. The standardized XML data models were designed by consortiums of industry experts that have put considerable time and effort into data modeling. Check out the XML schema library for free today.

    WHAT: In the real world, data is not read-only. While XQuery provides an excellent model for simple and powerful updates to XML, updates are missing from XQuery 1.0. Several vendors are implementing their own proprietary extensions to provide update, and several update proposals have circulated within the W3C XML Query Working Group and at various conferences.

    Join XQuery authors Jonathan Robie (DataDirect Technologies) and Daniela Florescu (Oracle Corporation) for a talk about their recently published requirements document which discusses various approaches to adding an Update Facility to XQuery.

    After identifying some of the major questions associated with this work and exploring the problem space and solution space without attempting to predict the answers that the Working Group will find, speakers hope to get feedback from the XML community to bring back into the XQuery Update work.

You can also easily convert files by dragging the file you want to convert onto any built-in or user-defined adapters. A new Auto-Backup feature optionally creates backup files of your documents when you save them.

    * XML Diff Text View: XML Differencing is even easier now with a third way to view differences in XML documents. In addition to the Split View - Tree tab and the Merged tab, you can now view two documents side-by-side in plain text on the Split View - Text tab.

    Hi fellow greenhorns - there's a new XQuery Industry Study that talks about XQuery adoption rates among developers and tries to explain why so many are using it. (eg: because it's easier then DOM, sql extensions, XSLT, etc.) You can download the study from here:
