On 3 February I was waxing enthusiastic about XML and its many possibilities. Today I'm going to provide some of the sites where I've been spending time:
- XML Directory is rich with XML resources, including Applications & Tools, vendor products, whitepapers and links to more resources.
- Top XML is more developer-focused and prides itself on haveing 160 zip files of working code, 78 PDF files of documents and 2,226 pages of articles and code snippets. In other words, a treasure trove for XML developers.
- IBM's XML Zone is my favorite. The articles and tools are consistently excellent, and it features columns that are written by knowledgeable professionals. One article that I particularly liked is XML at ibm.com, which shows how IBM uses XML in their own e-commerce infrastructure.
- Construction and Presentation of Information in the Visual Arts is a look at the practical use(s) of XML and XSL for information dissemination. If you're involved in knowledge management, portals or online publishing this page is a gem.
- Web Developer's XML page is for developers and leads to XML Resources, as well as sections on XSL (XSL-FO, XSLT, XPath), XLink and XPointer, XHTML, XML Schema, SOAP, VoiceXML and much more.
- The XML Club is an interesting collection of resources. It's smaller than some of the collections listed above, which makes it easier to navigate. It has articles that I haven't seen elsewhere, which makes it worth a visit.
- A two-part series on XML from Online Journalism Review underscores the power of XML in information management. The parts are:
- Sun's XML page is a source of information that is especially useful to Java developers.
- Programming in XML and Java is a university course from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The materials are suitable for professionals as well as students.
- No list of XML resources would be complete without something from Oracle. Their technical note on Connecting Businesses with XML, XSQL, and AQ shows they have a great strategy and a compelling story to tell.
