Judging from the ongoing developments and debates about XML document validation, it's evident the language is in flux. In this article, writer and consultant Uche Ogbuji gets a handle on some of these changes and introduces the Schematron, a new validation and reporting methodology and toolkit.
If XML is to become the language of trusted Web applications (e.g., electronic commerce) it needs standard mechanisms for digitally signing and encrypting XML entities (and it needs them soon!). Furthermore, this mechanism must be fully functional in environments where only XML tools are available.
Now that we have a basic idea of how XLink looks, it's time to dive into the details. This section presents all the constructs and rules contained in the XLink specification.
This document specifies XML digital signature processing rules and syntax. XML Signatures provide integrity, message authentication, and/or signer authentication services for data of any type, whether located within the XML that includes the signature or elsewhere.
The very nature of the success of the Web lies in its capability for linking resources. However, the unidirectional, simple linking structures of the Web today are not enough for the growing needs of an XML world. The official W3C solution for linking in XML is called XLink (XML Linking Language). T
