Mailing Lists for XML Developers


The Mailing Lists


This list provides a technical forum for Cold Fusion developers who are using - or want to start using - XML in their applications.


The purpose of this group is to discuss the application of XML to genealogical projects. Potential topics include XML, specifications on how XML should be used for genealogical reporting, vocabularies like GedML, GeniML, and GEDCOM 6.0, conversion of GEDCOM to XML, genealogy visualization tools, advice on XML and XSLT, and so on. Although this group is not a genealogy standards committee, discussion of current/proposed standards and models are viable topics. Restraint should be used when posting messages not directly related to genealogy and/or XML.


The MusicXML e-mail list discusses MusicXML software and usage issues. If you are a MusicXML software developer, this is a great place to ask questions and share experiences.


discussion of enhancing Perl's ability to work with XML and for using Perl with XML documents


Discussion of producing a simplified subset of XML, with probable disastrous consequences for interoperability.


The development of SVG Mobile profiles (SVG Basic and SVG Tiny) opens up new avenues for using SVG. The SVG-Mobile mailing list is intended to facilitate discussion on topics relevant to the use of SVG on mobile platforms.


XML-APP is an informal, unmoderated mailing list created to support those who are interested in developing XML applications. This mailing list differs from XML-DEV in that it is intended to promote deployment of XML standards in real world applications. Only the topics related to the application of XML technology are appropriate for this mailing list. XML-APP represents the "dwarvish" aspect of the XML community, down in the dirt and slime, working feverishly to make things work, and hounded by over-hype and deadlines. Throw the theories and elegant designs out the window, pull up your sleeves, and come join the discussions.


General discussion of XML in Italian

The ietf-xml-mime mailing list is for discussing MIME types for XML. Revisions of RFC 2376 are discussed.


A mailing list for developers of web applications using Java tools. The list is platform neutral and vendor independent. The focus is not on theory, but rather is on the discussion of real world issues facing developers. What works and what doesn't? How do you port an application from one servlet engine to another? What tools have you found that make your job easier? These are the sorts of questions that are asked and answered on the list.


Discussion of Sun's Java XML Messaging API (JAXM) and the M Project early access prototype.


XML Pipeline Language


Discussion of XML processing in PHP, PHP XML tools, and Weblications.


Web services involve a great deal of structured description and design for agent automation. Both of these are matters addressed by the Resource Description Framework (RDF). This list is for discussion of the use of RDF in Web services and trade facilitation. Topics include the use of RDF to augment systems such as UDDI/WSDL or ebXML to the proposal and development of original solutions.


RELAX is a schema language for XML

  • RELAX is written in XML instance document syntax.
  • RELAX can validates datatypes.
  • RELAX grammer is more powerful than that of DTD.

  • sax-announce

    List for developers contributing to SAX.  


    List for developers using SAX in their own applications.


    Rick Jelliffe's schematron schema language

    For discussion of Semantic Web Interface Technologies Development such as:

    1. How the SW will/can be interfaced
    2. How current UI technologies may be used with SW technologies
    3. SW Portals (the primary means of SW interface)
    4. Current SWI sites, articles, resources etc.
    5. How new technologies for the SW may be developed
    6. SW protocols, frameworks, and applications


    This list is for practical discussion about XQuery: a place to work together to learn a new language, talk about problem solutions, discuss engines and implementations, chat about the latest announcements, and so on.

    General discussion of the W3C's Resource Description Framework


    Development and interpretation of the Scalable Vector Graphics specifications

    This list discusses the development of XML software: browsers, editors, parsers, etc.


    For technical writers, developers, vendors, and others to discuss applications of XML to documentation.


    The xml-hypertext list is an open forum for the discussion of creating hypertext with XML. Appropriate subjects include technologies for linking and pointing, hypertext-oriented transformations, and interactions between XML and Web infrastructure.


    This list discusses the ideal features of an XML Server and hopes to eventually implementat it as open source.

    Discussion of the XOM API for processing XML with Java.


    A rebellion of developers who do not like XPath and XSLT 2.0 and are earnestly trying create an XPath Next Generation as an alternative . XPath 1.0 is an enormously successful standard. Part of its success is its simplicity, but this simplicity also comes with limitations. The W3C is working on XPath 2.0, and there has been discussion of community work that provides alternative and/or complementary advancements of XPath. This mailing list is aimed at facilitating all such work.


    This list is intended to answer questions about the definition of the XML Query Language (XQL) language, how to implement it, who has implemented it in what products, and whatever else seems to be of interest.


    The official W3C XSL Working Group mailing list. People are invited to join the mailing list in order to exchange views on the XSLT language and its development. In order to keep traffic to a reasonable level, it is strongly discouraged to ask general questions about the use of XSLT.
