Creating, using and managing XML component dictionaries quick tutorials

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.

For a complete guide to using the CAM Editor see the main YouTube video tutorials website and the CAM Editor website.

SQL to XML open data and NIEM training video posted

Learn how to build a working XML query/response system with SQL database accessing and XML components from example NIEM schema and dictionary.

Software development practitioners, business analysts and managers will find the materials accessible and valuable in showing the decision making processes that go into constructing a working XML exchange.

The 22 minute video available online shows how to build a fully working ULEXS-SR exchange using a Vehicle license search example.  Also included are aspects of NIEM training for assembling an IEPD schema with data models.

Materials are focused on practical implementers, after viewing the instruction material you can use the open source tools and apply to your own SQL to XML use cases and information exchange projects.

All the SQL and XML code, editor tools, dictionary and instructions that accompany the tutorial video are also available for download so you can try everything yourself. 

See http://www.youtube.com/user/TheCameditor to run the video.

And the open source project web site (sponsored by Oracle) contains all the resources, downloads and supplemental materials.

Enjoy.

CAM editor tutorial video launches

To accompany the new CAM editor v2.0 release we now have an 8 minute online video. The video provides a quick introduction to the features and capabilities in the latest CAM editor release made available for community use courtesy of Oracle's media folks.

 The demonstration steps through a scenario of enhancing an existing OASIS HAVE schema to add new components and then generate the resulting updated exchange schema. The tutorial inserts new NIEM core components to the existing OASIS schema via drag and drop from the dictionary - showing you how you can tailor or build a new NIEM exchange from existing library components - and/or add your own components and rules.

To access the tutorial - see this link and just enter in an email address to launch the video page - http://launch.oracle.com/?NIEM

Oracle also has a new NIEM focus page with more resources and information: http://www.oracle.com/goto/niem

The main CAM editor download page is http://www.cameditor.org

About

Not all XML is created equal. XML Orb looks at the challenges of creating information exchanges with XML and NIEM and how this can be made simpler, comprehensible, consistent and reliable.
