XML & XSL Fast Start 2nd Edition: Your Quick Start Guide for XML & XSL: Smart Brain Training Solutions
Quickly find solutions to dozens of common problems encountered while using XML and JSON features that are built into SQL Server. Content is presented in the popular problem-solution format. Look up the problem that you want to solve. Read the solution. Apply the solution directly in your own code. Problem solved! This book shows how to take advantage of XML and JSON to share data and automate tasks. JSON is commonly used to move data back and forth between the database and front-end applications, often running in a browser. This book shows all you need to know about transforming query results into JSON format, and back again. Also covered are the processes and techniques for moving data into and out of XML format for business intelligence and other purposes, such as when transferring data from a reporting system into a data warehouse, or between different database brands such as between SQL Server and Oracle. Microsoft intensively implements XML in SQL Server, and in many related products. Execution plans are generated in XML format, and this book shows you how to parse those plans and automate the detection of performance problems. The relatively new Extended Events feature writes tracing data into XML files, and the recipes in this book help in parsing those files. XML is also used in SQL Server´s BI tool set, including in SSIS, SSR, and SSAS. XML is used in many configuration files, and is even behind the construction of DDL triggers. In reading this book you´ll dive deeply into the features that allow you to build and parse XML, and also JSON, which is a specific format of XML used to transmit objects in a web-friendly format between a database and its front-end applications. What You Will Learn Build XML and JSON objects in support of automation and data transfer Import and parse XML and JSON from operating system files Build appropriate indexes on XML objects to improve query performance Move data from query result sets into JSON format, and back again Automate the detection of database performance problems by querying and parsing the database´s own execution plans Replace external and manual JSON processes with SQL Server´s internal, JSON functionality Who This Book Is For Database administrators, .NET developers, business intelligence developers, and other professionals who want a deep and detailed skill set around working with XML and JSON in a SQL Server database environment. Web developers will particularly find the book useful for its coverage of transforming database result sets into JSON text that can be transmitted to front-end web applications.
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. Focuses on methodologies for the design and deployment of XML-based content management solutions based on standards like BMPN and SPEM Provides an updated view of consolidated technologies for structured data management Explains the link between technologies for content storage and distribution Presents the conceptual knowledge to understand and relate the strategic view provided by OAIS with the management of daily operations focused on content collection, aggregation and publishing Ricardo Eito-Brun is an Associate Professor at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain, where he teaches different subjects related to digital publishing, knowledge organization and information management. Ricardo holds a master degree in Software Engineering from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and in Documentation and Information Science from University of Granada (Spain) and a doctoral degree from University of Zaragoza (Spain) on the application of distributed collaboration environments and Semantic Web techniques for the description and classification of archival materials. He has been responsible for several large scale content management and web-based publishing projects for companies and public institutions. He is the author of four books on mark-up languages and XML and numerous articles and conference papers in the field of information management.

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.
