Declarative extensions of XML languages

Thompson, Simon and King, Peter R. and Schmitz, Patrick (2007) Declarative extensions of XML languages. In: King, Peter and Simske, Steven, eds. DocEng '07 Proceedings of the 2007 ACM symposium on Document engineering. ACM, New York, USA, pp. 89-91. ISBN 978-1-59593-776-6. (doi:10.1145/1284420.1284442) (KAR id:14554)


We present a set of XML language extensions that bring notions from functional programming to web authors, extending the power of declarative modelling for the web. Our previous work discussed expressions and user-defined events. In this paper, we discuss how one may extend XML by adding definitions and parameterization; complex data and data types; and reactivity, events and continuous ''behaviours''. We consider these extensions in the light of World Wide Web Consortium standards, and illustrate their utility by a variety of use cases.
