   Schemas vs DTD (Newbie Discussion!!) - For XML-CV JAVA Application

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi all,

I am fairly new to Java and XML having learnt the basic skills in my spare
time but wish to move into a JAVA/XML development environement. I wish to
build a Java Application that can take advantage of XML in order to have
something demonstratable when applying for positions.

I have decided to build a XML-CV Application using Java, which I have spent
the past month or so learning how to use the SAX API, and working with the
DOM. I have come across XML Resume, a DTD with XSL and CSS files that allows
one to write an XML document and have it output it 3 different formats in 3
different languages. I liked the idea as I am working on my CV at the
present time with a view to the future.

I would like my application to allow Users to graphically construct a
document but was wondering if I would be better off using a Schema rather
than a DTD and if the Java API's are able to work with the Schema's. I work
at home using XMLSpy and recently begun using the graphical Schema designer
and feel the data typing would be beneficial.

I also envisage the application being useful for employers as well as
job-seekers by implementing the ability to sort, highlight and compare CV's
sent to the employer, and categorise them etc. Whilst the job-seeker will be
able to choose a format as well as XML to have their CV.

Job-Seekers will be able to download Langauge files, and format files when
added from a web page, with users able to submit language templates for
production of various language files, as well as XSL files for formatting

I would be interested to hear from anyone who feels this is a viable
application, and if I am approaching it from the correct angle.

Kind Regards
