Business Functions Prototyping via XSLT

Conference paper


At the present time, there is no doubt that the languages based on XML-family of formats belong to the most discussed topics of the information industry (XML is an abbreviation for eXtensible Markup Language, see e.g. XML, 2003; W3C, 2003). The primary goal of the XML format was to provide the text marking mechanism for documents, and use this technique in information exchange between resources. XMLdata are intended to be generated and consumed by applications. Consequently, the XML language has recently emerged as a new approach for information representation.
