ServingXML 1.0.5

ServingXML is a markup language for expressing XML pipelines.
ServingXML is a markup language for expressing XML pipelines, and an extensible Java framework for defining the elements of the language.

ServingXML currently comes with a console app, and also documents an API for imbedding the software in a standard Java or J2EE application.

ServingXML supports reading content as XML files, flat files, SQL queries or dynamically generated SAX events, transforming it with XSLT stylesheets and custom SAX filters, and writing it as XML, HTML, PDF or mail attachments.

This software is especially suited for converting flat file or database records to XML, with its support for namespaces, variant record types, multi-valued fields, segments and repeating groups, hierarchical grouping of records, and record-by-record validation with XML Schema.

ServingXML works as an "inversion of control" container for assembling components from a variety of projects - Apache FOP, Sun MSV and others - and making them work together to process records and XML.

Main features:

  • Convert flat files to XML and vice versa.
  • Convert database records to XML and vice versa.
  • Convert flat files from one layout to another.
  • Transform and validate XML with SAX filters, XSLT stylesheets, and schema validation.
