   XML compaction software of a new version

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Dear Sirs:

This is an announcement of XML compaction software using 
CSV (Comma Separated Values) format of a new version.

I posted a mail about an introduction of this software here 
in February last year.
The software is used to improve data-processing performance 
of XML documents by reducing the size fo XML instances. It 
makes arbitrary instances in a record packed in CSV forms. 
The improvement of memory consumption, DOM persing time, and 
DOM traverse time is almost propotional to the reduction of 
XML instances. Especially it is useful when sizes of documents 
are large, such as tens of megabytes or more.
Its compacted documents are still XML documents which consist
of character codes. The compaction convesion is performed by
using XSLT, and is reversible.

Now the software, "CSV compaction for XML", of a new version 
was completed and its distribution has begun.
I am happy to announce that.

The funtions of the software are largely enhanced.
It can handle XML documents of not only fixed format in which 
number of elemets/attributes and element-names/attribute-names 
in a record are fixed but also unfixed formats. Moreover, it 
can treat nested records and records in several complicated 

At the end of this March, I had a presentation of the software
entitled "CSV compaction to improve data-processing performance 
for large XML documents" at the poster session of IEEE Data 
Compression Conference 2004. The materials of the presentation 
can be viewed from the following site.
The material decribes the aim, target and application image of 
this method.

I would appreciate it very much if you could try this new 
software and let me have your comments.

Best Regards,
