Creating, using and managing XML component dictionaries quick tutorials
By drrwebber on Nov 04, 2013
XML Component Dictionary capabilities are provided in conjunction with the CAM Editor toolset. These dictionaries accelerate the development of consistent XML information exchanges using standard sets of dictionary components.
The quick tutorials are aimed at showing the 'how to' of the basic capabilities to jump start use of XML dictionaries with the CAM Editor.
The collection of dictionary tutorials videos run for a total of approximately 20 minutes. Each video can be reviewed individually also.
Learn how to use the dictionary functions to create dictionaries by harvesting data model components from existing XSD schema, SQL database table schema, or simple Excel / Open Office spreadsheets with tables of components listed.
Also included are tips and functions relating to use of NIEM exchange development, IEPD and EIEM techniques.
These videos should be viewed in conjunction with reviewing the overall concepts and techniques described in the companion video on the CAM Editor and Dictionaries overview. The approach is aligned with OASIS and Core Components Technical Specification (CCTS) standards specifications for XML components and dictionaries.
Dictionary collections can be stored locally on the file system, or local network, or collaboratively on the web or cloud deployment, or can be shared and managed securely using the Oracle Enterprise Repository (OER) tool.
Also included are techniques relating to the use of the NIEM approach for developing XML exchange schema and IEPD packages. This includes generating reuse scores, wantlist, and cross reference spreadsheets.
Included in the latest release of the CAM Editor is the ability to use the analyse dictionary tool to determine duplicate components, conflicting component definitions, missing component descriptions and so on. This ensures high quality dictionary component specifications. Using the CAM Editor you can also create MindMap models and UML physical models of your dictionary components sets.
