Building XML Workflow Applications
New Tutorial Explains How to use XML, XSLT and XQuery to Develop Powerful XML Workflow Applications
BEDFORD, MA -- 02/24/2006 -- Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML development tools and components for advanced data integration, today announced the availability of a new tutorial entitled: Building XML Workflow Applications, written by XML industry guru, Dr. Michael Kay, founder of Saxonica, the producer of the Saxon XQuery and XSLT processor. Dr. Kay is a member of the W3C committee on XQuery, XPath, and XSLT, and winner of the 2005 XML Cup award. Software developers and managers looking gain valuable insight into the design and architecture XML-based workflow applications are urged to read the new tutorial online today.

By writing the logic in these high-level languages (rather than say Java or C#), the biggest benefit you gain is flexibility and adaptability - the ability to change the application in response to changing business needs. XML gives you this flexibility in terms of data design; don't lose it by writing applications that freeze the data structure into Java or C# classes. Building XML Workflow Applications covers the following topics:
The article is the latest in a series of XML articles to be featured in the Stylus Scoop, including Learn XQuery in 10 Minutes, An Introduction to the XQuery FLWOR, and Schema Aware XSLT and XQuery processing. Read the XML Workflow article online today for free!
