Sample text

In this chapter, we shall introduce the syntax of a simple core language for semistructured data and then describe two extensions that have resulted in working prototypes. The development of query languages for semistructured data, and in particular for XML, is very much in its infancy, and it is anyone's guess as to what will emerge as a standard. The two languages we shall describe here, Lorel and UnQL, are very similar in expressive power. They are presented in this fashion so that the reader should be able to appreciate that there is not a huge difference between query languages based on a database standard query language such as OQL and those, like XSL and XML-QL, that are based on pattern matching on the syntax of the underlying data format.

Such information may be included separately in a stylesheet. Stylesheets in a specification language called XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language) are used to translate XML data to HTML. The resulting HTML pages can then be displayed by standard browsers. XSL will be described in Chapter 5. In its basic form, XML is simply a syntax for transmitting data, much in the spirit of the syntax described in Chapter 2. As such, it is likely to become a major standard for data exchange on the Web. For an organization or a group of users, XML allows a specification that facilitates data exchange and reuse by multiple applications.

If the user clicks on this anchor, a pop-up menu appears with an alternative between visa and kleebox, the two accepted forms of payment. The choice of one triggers the inclusion of the appropriate form. The linking process is quite rich. Indeed, a link between an element in a document d, and a document d 2 may be defined externally to both d, and d 2 . Thus, we may link a document to others without actually modifying it. XLink also allows us to create links that have several targets. XLink and Xpointer are not yet fully standardized.
