Re: What approaches do people use to create tag names and attr
I think, in the case of XML content modeling also, the techniques used for logical and physical data modeling can be used (mostly used in RDBMS world). The steps for logical data modeling are: First from the problem domain, we get the entity names (along with their attributes); for e.g. Entity: Book Attributes: Name, Author, ISBN, Price During logical data modeling, we also identify the relationship between entities. During physical data modeling, we add details to the logical model. In RDBMS world, we map entities to the tables, and the relationships between entities (in the logical model) are mapped to the foreign key relationships. We can apply similar concepts for the XML world. From the logical model, we can derive the XML Schema.
