Beyond Object-Oriented Paradigm — A Document-Oriented Development Paradigm for XML-based Information Navigation System

  • Zaijun Hu
Conference paper


XML is gradually influencing every aspect of the software and IT industry. More and more XML-based applications are being developed. The object-oriented paradigm cannot fit in with this new challenging environment. The document-oriented paradigm is probably the suitable one that can address the new challenges. In this paper we will deal with the document-oriented paradigm for the development of an online XML based information navigation system. We will also discuss its basic elements, the classification of the documents, the relationship among the document and the corresponding design issues. Finally we will compare it with the object-oriented one and the possible use of OO-methodology in the document-oriented paradigm.
