Extensible Markup Language (XML) is becoming more and more popular for data exchange, storage and presentation. It is also proven to be very useful for defining other data handling formats, such as WSDL or SVG.
The speaker will give an overview of XML and its related technologies - XML-schemas, XPath, XSLT, XSL:FO - and provide examples of its practical use at CERN in the context of the Electronic Document Handling system (EDH) project.
Rostislav ("Slava") Titov first arrived at CERN in 1995 and since then he works as a software engineer in various administrative information systems projects at CERN. For the last 5 years Slava was one of the core developers of the CERN Electronic Document Handling system (EDH).
