XML and Modeling
Research seminar; one hour of discussion per week. The design of robust web-based services and document-intensive applications requires precise models of information and the processes by which the information is created and used. Neither the modeling methods nor the models have anything inherently to do with XML or any other syntax. Nevertheless, XML has rapidly become a preferred format for representing both the conceptual and physical models used to exchange information and drive model-based applications, and substantial efforts are underway to develop methods and tools that exploit XML.
