XProc Requirements and Use Cases

Volume 9, Issue 41; 11 Apr 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

The XML Processing Model Working Group has officially published its first document: XML Processing Model Requirements and Use Cases.

I'm happy to report that we've published XML Processing Model Requirements and Use Cases, our first public working draft. (Thank you WG, thank you Alex!)

The requirements and use cases document for XProc carries on the work started by the XML Core Working Group.

Looking at the schedule, we're a little behind. But we have the beginnings of a language specification so I'm still optimistic.

Your comments are, as always, most welcome.


This is looking really good!

Cool. I will be interested to see how this compares to what I do now within Apache Ant. One thing I would want a pipeline to be able to do is to be able to generate a series of temporary XML documents as an intermediate step, and then be able to iterate over them for a later step. I find this kind of thing very useful for separating actual processing from reporting at the end of the pipeline. Cheers, Tony.
