MISSISSAUGA, ON — Oracle Corporation, a major E-business software producer, has developed an application software that checks the validity of extensible markup language, or XML. This is a net benefit to programmers who want to use a predeveloped program, instead of developing one for individual applications. Simply put, such a development promises to decrease the time for companies to develop on-line exchanges on the Web. According to David Beech, a member of Oracle’s technical staff, “Using an XML schema, a document and its data can be modeled and validated with far greater precision than is achievable with a document-type definition” — or DTD, the prevailing method. Using such a method, XML programmers have to manually develop rules and procedures for each application. Now it’s there in one package. As an added benefit, the schema processor will conform to the final W3C XML schema specifications once they become published. The latest release of Oracle XDK can be downloaded freely from the company’s Canadian Web site, at www.oraclecanada.com.
