Re: Databinding Patterns Conformance Tools

Hi Philip,

This is great stuff, and just the kind of tool we'd encourage people to build using our work!

The materials published by the Working Group are available for you to use under the terms of the W3C Document license:

    http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-documents-20021231

and tools under the W3C Software license:

    http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-software-20021231

You should provide attribution to the W3C. Ensuring your tool uses the latest patterns,
without hitting the W3C site hard, would be nice too.

We can add a link to your tool, and other tools using the specification,
from the Working Group page, is this the best thing to point at?

Sorry not to have replied sooner!

Hi

In case there's any interest in using a specialist XPath 2.0
expression library development and management tool that can be used
for Databinding Patterns conformance checking:

I've done a brief study of using patterns.xml with this tool, details are at:

http://pgfearo.googlepages.com/databindingpatternsanalysis

This project uses Saxon.Net, its non-commercial (i.e. no-cost and
redistributable in 'binary' form) but isn't Open Source, its at
Technical Preview stage now with a production release scheduled for
May 8 2008.

In a way, this tool, SketchPath, was a solution looking for a problem
- it might just fit this one. I'm in no real position to judge, but
would appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks

Encouraged by your reply, I've now updated SketchPath (v2.0.0.2) so that the XSD Databinding Patterns can be downloaded and imported into this tool in a single step. This update also includes a fix for a bug related to the sorting of the patterns data that is imported.
 
SketchPath now provides for downloading and processing a regularly updated copy of the patterns.xml file that is cached on the SketchPath website. (The XPath import-expressions used to process the imported data are downloaded at the same time).
 
As well as pattern names, groups, expressions and comments, the SketchPath import-expressions also now add a special administrative group as a container for patterns version and namespace data.
 
Updated instructions on how to use SketchPath for Databinding Patterns detection and a link to the downloads page are at: http://pgfearo.googlepages.com/databindingpatternsanalysis so I would be most grateful if you could link from your tools page to either this or the SketchPath home page at: http://www.sketchpath.com
 
 
Thanks
