Description

XML Schema is the new language standard from the W3C and the new foundation for defining data in Web-based systems. There is a wealth of information available about Schemas but very little understanding of how to use this highly formal specification for creating documents. Grasping the power of Schemas means going back to the basics of documents themselves, and the semantic rules, or grammars, that define them. Written for schema designers, system architects, programmers, and document authors, Modeling Business Objects with XML Schema guides you through understanding Schemas from the basic concepts, type systems, type derivation, inheritance, namespace handling, through advanced concepts in schema design.

Key Features

Reviews basic XML syntax and the Schema recommendation in detail. Builds a knowledge base model step by step (about jazz music) that is used throughout the book. *Discusses Schema design in large environments, best practice design patterns, and Schema's relation to object-oriented concepts.

Readership

Schema designers, information architects, programmers, database designers, document authors and students in information technology, database design, and business information systems.

Reviews

"XML and Schemas are now taking the enterprise world by storm. Understanding how to leverage their abilities is essential to those who already use XML from fields such as the web, content and knowledge management, and e-business. But it is equally important that experts in other technologies, such object-oriented or relational technology, build their understanding of XML Schemas. Specifications such as the XML Schema Recommendations produced by the Working Group must focus on defining technology and do not have the luxury of explaining motivation, design issues and applications. This book fills that need admirably."—From the foreword by Dave Hollander, CTO, Contivo, Inc.; Co-chair W3C XML Schema Working Group.
