Hi Philip,

This is great stuff, and just the kind of tool we'd encourage people to build using our work!

The materials published by the Working Group are available for you to use under the terms of the W3C Document license:


and tools under the W3C Software license:


You should provide attribution to the W3C. Ensuring your tool uses the latest patterns, 
without hitting the W3C site hard, would be nice too.

We can add a link to your tool, and other tools using the specification, 
from the Working Group page, is this the best thing to point at?


Sorry not to have replied sooner!

In case there's any interest in using a specialist XPath 2.0
expression library development and management tool that can be used
for Databinding Patterns conformance checking:

I've done a brief study of using patterns.xml with this tool, details are at:


This project uses Saxon.Net, its non-commercial (i.e. no-cost and
redistributable in 'binary' form) but isn't Open Source, its at
Technical Preview stage now with a production release scheduled for
May 8 2008.

In a way, this tool, SketchPath, was a solution looking for a problem
- it might just fit this one. I'm in no real position to judge, but
would appreciate any thoughts.
