ZapNote: Epicentric
Portals are being used to provide access to content sources or applications such as Siebel and SAP, and enable a common composite application that is accessible via a web browser-based interface. There is a strong intersection with this application-centric use of portals and what is going on with Web Services. Portals provide a compelling means for application delivery of Web Services in a familiar development and management environment. Epicentric has produced a number of advanced products and services to address this capability, and has championed the development of XML-based formats for specification of presentation-layer interfaces for Web Services.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: LogML
The key concept behind the idea of data mining using web server log file information is that web site users are inherently "telling" the web server where the relevant information they are seeking is located, and what important information is needed so web masters can appropriately position the information for maximum efficiency. Rather than simply crawling through every page on a website, not always an efficient mechanism for obtaining this information, LOGML can be used as an XML repository for actual usage patterns.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Jabber
Initially created as an open-source Instant Messaging (IM) platform, Jabber’s XMPP protocol has emerged as a general protocol for streaming XML data and Web Services. Offered as an alternative to HTTP, SMTP, and FTP, Jabber provides value in making Web Services more reliable and scalable. It also offers a compelling solution for those interested in a peer-to-peer (P2P) communications format, although the protocol isn’t a P2P protocol per se.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Scientio
While XML data is fundamentally tree-based and hierarchical, most data that is currently mined is table-based and relational. Many existing data mining algorithms deal don’t well with sparse data, and XML is a great example of such sparse data. Scientio has taken an approach to create data mining applications that deal well with the requirements of XML documents. [hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…

ZapNote: Mozquito
Mozquito Technologies AG produces a suite of development tools targeted at advanced interactive "form" development using XForms , XHTML, and their Forms Markup Language (FML) in its Mozquito Factory and Matrix product lines. This is important, since like XML, forms represent a structured interchange of data. Forms provide additional specific features such as workflow, auto-fill, and pre-fill form applications that are supported through the use of instance data.[hide -2]Download File[/hide][hide +1]Purchase: $395[/hide]…
