XML-based Content Management: Integration, Methodologies and Tools covers the design and deployment of XML-based solutions and how to manage content and metadata, a practice that requires a more methodological approach than those traditionally applied to the design and deployment of document and content management solutions. The extensive use of XML implies the need of adding additional activities, quality controls, and tools to the established document-management and web-application design processes. The book describes a methodology that covers the different phases of the content and metadata management lifecycle, from generation, to archiving, to compliance with existing content management and archiving standards. In addition, the book reviews the key characteristics of the tools necessary for storage, retrieval and delivery.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,7, Hochschule Niederrhein in Krefeld, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der heutigen Zeit spielt die Kommunikation zwischen Unternehmen eine wichtige Rolle. Wichtige Informationen werden miteinander ausgetauscht und weiterverarbeitet. Dies geschieht über sogenannte Schnittstellen. Schnittstellen sind definierte Übergänge zwischen zwei oder mehreren Datenübertragungseinrichtungen, Hardwarekomponenten, logischen Softwareeinheiten oder auch zwischen Menschen und Computern. Um die Kommunikation zwischen innerbetrieblichen oder zwischenbetrieblichen Geschäftsabläufe zu beschleunigen und zu optimieren, werden in Unternehmen Daten auf elektronischem Wege übermittelt. Dazu werden definierte Formate benötigt, um Inhalte für die beteiligten Systeme erkennbar zu machen. Die nachfolgenden Kapitel der Arbeit befassen sich mit dem elektronischen Datenaustausch im Geschäftsverkehr (englisch: Electronic Data Interchange - EDI) und einem kritischen Vergleich zwei ausgewählter Formatstandards, XML und UN/EDIFACT. Des Weiteren wird die Frage betrachtet, ob die Formate wirklich für Flexibilität und Standardisierung stehen. Diese Frage und andere dargelegte Ausarbeitungen dieser Arbeit beruhen auf eigene Nachforschungen in der gängigen Fachliteratur. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist, einen Überblick über zwei weit verbreitete Formatstandards zur Übertragung elektronischer Daten zu geben.
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Computer Science - Applied, grade: 1,3, Saarland University, language: English, abstract: The field of molecular visualization is an important part of biology, chemistry, medical computer science and bioinformatics. Molecular visualizations can help scientists to gain a better understanding of underlying mechanisms of molecular structures, even for large sets of data. With this thesis, we aim at bringing molecular visualizations to the browser. In order to achieve this goal, this thesis introduces a new online visualization tool for the web-based molecular structure analysis system ballaxy. Ballaxy is a customized version of the popular molecular data analysis and workflow system Galaxy and relies on the Biochemical Algorithms Library (BALL) framework. This framework provides molecular modeling functionality for structural bioinformatics. This new ballaxy tool equips scientists with a small and handy application to visualize molecular structures directly in the browser without forcing them to use any additional tools or browser plugins. It makes use of the HTML extension XML3D to render molecular visualizations in the browser and optimizes the already existing XML3D export feature available in BALL and its accompanied molecular visualization tool BALLView. The implementation of this optimization exploits XML3D features, which have been added to the XML3D library only recently. It removes many redundancies in the resulting documents and adds new features, like animations or additional information about the visualized molecules. This thesis provides an initial implementation of the tool mentioned above and also extends BALLView with all newly developed features. Furthermore, it proofs that the newly introduced optimizations of the XML3D renderer have a significant positive impact on the browser rendering performance and the general usability of this solution. Our approach shows that native 3D visualizations of molecular structures in the browser are a feasible option for displaying and analyzing molecular structures. The solutions developed for this thesis can already be used by scientists for their everyday work.
