[RefleX] Once Upon A Tag...

RefleX 0.2.0 is out !
and Better Than Ever

-This new release introduces *XUnit*, a tool that helps to design 
test-suites for programs that are dealing with XML datas. I'll made a 
separate post to present XUnit...

-One of the most outstanding new feature is the ability to *filter SAX 
streams with XPath patterns* ; you'll find in the tutorial section a 
runnable example where a 15Mo file is connected to a SAX pipeline with a 
rule-based filter...

-*XInclude and the XPointer framework* are also supported. You can also 
XMLize raw text with a tokenizer or once again thanks to XPath patterns 
(have a look at the tutorials).

-I also started to write tiny Active Tags applications related to 
XML-oriented Programming : some use cases taken from W3C's "XML 
Processing Model Requirements and Use Cases" 
(http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/langreq.html) intend to proove the 
viability of the engine for various tasks.

-There are also new ideas such as using XML catalogs as a support for 
resources management ; in RefleX, all the resources expected by the 
engine are declared in Active Catalogs, and custom libraries can be 
declared as-well easily.

-You'll still find in RefleX some means to define semantic data types 
and Active Schemata, that is to say schemata that have their content 
models dynamic, not static. 2 examples are available in the tutorial 
section : they demonstrate that what you can't express with W3C XML 
Schema nor RelaX NG can be achieved with Active Schema.

-You can meet me at *<XML 2006>* in Boston, from 5-7 December 2006, 
where I will speak about RefleX and Active Tags.

Enjoy !
