XML Schema-driven Generation of Architecture Components

Ali El bekai, Nick Rossiter


It is possible to code by hand an XSL stylesheet that validates an XML document against some or all constraints of an XML schema. But the main goal of this paper introduces general techniques as a technology solution for different problems such as (a) generation of SQL schema from XMLSchema, (b) generating XSL stylesheet from XMLSchema, and (c) XQuery interpreter generating. Each of the techniques proposed in this paper works by XMLSchema-driven generation of architecture components with XSL stylesheet. As can be seen the input is XMLSchema and XSL stylesheet and the output is generic stylesheets. These stylesheets can be used as interpreter for generating other types of data such as SQL queries from XQueries, SQL data, SQL schema and HTML format. Using XSL stylesheets we present algorithms showing how we can generate these components automatically.
