    how and where do i store converted XML docs?


    I am researching for XML data repository.
    For example, say I converted a word doc into XML doc, then how and where
    do i store that converted doc, so other people can extract that same doc
    in different format later from that repository. I am very new to this subject,
    so please!! help me.....thanks a bunch. =)

    Hello,
    How and where you store the XML data is your business. You can use a
    DBMS or plain HDD storage, depending on your needs. For a huge data
    repository, a DBMS-only or a combined solution might be the best for you,
    but I can't tell for sure.
    To display the XML data in different formats, you use XSLT (XML
    Stylesheet Transformations). This way, you can generate plain text, (X)HTML,
    or even .DOC, .PDF and many other text/binary data formats.
    To learn the basics about XSLT you can use http://www.w3schools.com/xsl/
    , or search for "XSLT Tutorial" on, say, Google. To check out some XML based
    tools, check out http://xml.apache.org/ and http://msdn.microsoft.com/xml/ ,
    to name two of my favorites.
    HTH,
    Ovidiu.

    How do you generate .doc or .pdf by applying XSLT over XML file?
    Thanks.

    Re: how and where do i store converted XML docs?


    What tools are you using or planning to use (i.e VB)?

    I assume .doc means MS Word. MS Word is a proprietary format. There are
    tools like from Apache.org for converting XML to PDF. They are not typically
    (I don't think they are at all) XSLT based because it is not simple to create
    these formats, although XSL may be involved.

    Ok, I'm with you now. I would like to see how Ovidiu Platon is going to get
    these things with just XSLT. It won't be generic XSLT.

    Re: how and where do i store converted XML docs?

    I apologize for 2 mistakes in my reply:
    1. It's not XLST, it's XSL-FO
    and
    2. I said "you can" generate .DOC files, but there's no such tool on the
    market today; I'm working on one for internal use and it's based on XSL-FO,
    just like the PDF generator. BTW, MS Word file format is public, so any of
    you can do the same thing.
    Best regards,
    Ovidiu.

    >MS Word file format is public

    It is? Ok, maybe it is.

    But the issue is it is a proprietary format and MS can change it at will
    and has. The best thing to do is write to interface and/or use a third party
    tool like - http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/ . Apache's FOP (http://xml.apache.org/fop/)
    already supports most formats and who knows... .

    Re: how and where do i store converted XML docs?


    We use a product called "Eclipse" to publish to multiple formats from our
    XML. It has greatly reduced server load as we used to transform XML to HTML
    on the server. It requires XSLT to transform the XML, so we had the developers
    of Eclipse write XSLT to convert our XML to HTML, WML and PDF (we decided
    the latter was useful to our org). If we update or change the XML, this software
    automatically updates each of the different file formats. We have been happy
    with its performance.
