  • SXC – Simple XML Compiler – SXC (Simple XML Compiler) allows you to created optimized parsers and writers for XML. Through a declarative API you’re able to tell SXC what type of XML to expect and what actions to associate with it.
  • On the Stre@m – Flex has become more accessible – The Flex module for Apache and IIS provides web-tier compilation of MXML and ActionScript files on Apache and IIS web servers.
  • Assessing the Survivors of the Java IDE Wars – For enterprise development, I’d say IDEA wins out with its rich support for both J2EE and Java EE 5, followed closely by NetBeans (which also does an impressive job here), and last is Eclipse/MyEclipse (mostly due to their current lack of support for Java
  • An XQuery Servlet for RESTful Data Services – This paper shows how to use XQuery for data integration, and how to expose an XQuery as a RESTful data service using a Java servlet
  • Control.Tabs : Projects : LivePipe – Control.Tabs is a javascript library for creating accessible, flexible & unobtrusive tabbed interfaces in your applications or pages.

Discover how XMLBeans is revolutionizing data binding

Get an in-depth look at the features and functionality of XMLBeans. This article introduces the technology with a simple example, takes you through the step-by-step process of compilation and binding, and discusses advanced features like XML cursors, tokens, and XQuery expressions. It also discusses how XMLBeans is more powerful than other XML-Java technology data binding techniques.

XML Beans: The Best of Both Worlds

BEA’s dev2dev site has an article titled XML Beans: The Best of Both Worlds on their cover page. XMLBeans is a pretty interesting technology from BEA that provides easy navigation of XML data using cursors or XQuery statements. In addition, Java classes representing the XML document is automatically generated based on the XML Schema provided. These generated Java classes enable easy read/write access to XML information and enforce XML Schema constraints. Pretty neat idea and it’s fast. And the support for XML Schema is pretty nice.

This brings up an issue as Sun has been pushing JAXB as the standard API/tool that automates the mapping between XML documents and Java objects. Will these 2 products directly compete or will BEA support JAXB completely in their product line? BEA has typically had a really good record of supporting and leading the charge on creation of new standards via. the JCP. Hitesh Seth, the author talks about it in his article and I second his hope that these initiatives converge at some point. ok.. Now back to Hibernate 🙂
