CLiXML - Testing of semantic properties in XML documents

MSVVEIS 2006, Cyprus May 23-24, 2006
Abstract: XML is a markup language with a clear hierarchical structure. Validating an XML document against a schema document is an important part in the work flow incorporating XML documents. Most approaches use grammar based schema languages. Grammar based schemas are well suited for the syntax definition of an XML document, but come to their limits when semantic properties are to be defined. This paper presents a rule based, first order schema language, complementary to grammar based schema languages, demonstrating its strength in defining semantic properties for an XML document.
