   SAX random access update

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm thinking of the following method to provide random access update to SAX 
If there's already similar thing developed somewhere (or better perhaps) , 
I'd be glad
to have some urls, you can also tell me that the idea sucks, I can take it ;)

the method assumes:
- roundtrip serialization from input to output works
- there's some way to generate new unique entity names/refs for document
- state tracking is already working and is controllable by switching some flag
   that indicates we're collecting data (replaced by unique entity ref) or 

the doc:

	<name>Marlon Random</name>
   <person> etc ...

the procedure:

if wanted person(s) is found, the doc will be serialized to the format:

<!DOCTYPE viplist [
	<!ENTITY uniqueID SYSTEM "someuniqueIDtoo">
   <person> etc ...

when the update is performed, document is simply parsed again and
unique "update" entities are resolved with custom resolveEntityHandler.

"There are lots of myths that people have around issues of beauty and 
attraction, and part of the issue is to stop thinking about things in terms 
of myth, but to use the tools of neuroscience, and start dissecting and 
understanding how things actually function," said Dr. Hans Breiter, a 
psychiatrist and co-author of the study."
