W3C Advisory Committee Elects Technical Architecture Group
Participants

   11 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8694

   The W3C Advisory Committee has re-elected Ashok Malhotra
   (Oracle) and Henry Thompson (U. of Edinburgh) to the W3C
   Technical Architecture Group (TAG). Continuing TAG participants
   are John Kemp (Nokia), Larry Masinter (Adobe), T.V. Raman
   (Google). The Director is also expected to appoint three
   individuals very soon. The mission of the TAG is to build
   consensus around principles of Web architecture and to
   interpret and clarify these principles when necessary, to
   resolve issues involving general Web architecture brought to
   the TAG, and to help coordinate cross-technology architecture
   developments inside and outside W3C.

   to know how this resource works for you and how we can improve
   it. See the blog post: Take a few minutes to encourage web
   accessibility. Your voice counts. Learn about Accessibility and

Last Call: XProc: An XML Pipeline Language

   05 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8690

   The XML Processing Model Working Group has published a Last
   Call Working Draft of "XProc: An XML Pipeline Language," a
   language for describing operations to be performed on XML
   documents. A pipeline consists of steps. Like pipelines, steps
   take zero or more XML documents as their inputs and produce
   zero or more XML documents as their outputs. The inputs of a
   step come from the web, from the pipeline document, from the
   inputs to the pipeline itself, or from the outputs of other
   steps in the pipeline. The outputs from a step are consumed by
   other steps, are outputs of the pipeline as a whole, or are
   discarded. Comments are welcome through 02 February. Learn more
   about the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Activity.

Indexed Database API Draft Published

   05 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8689

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Indexed Database API." User agents need to store
   large numbers of objects locally in order to satisfy off-line
   data requirements of Web applications. The Web Storage
   specification is useful for storing pairs of keys and their
   corresponding values. However, it does not provide in-order
   retrieval of keys, efficient searching over values, or storage
   of duplicate values for a key. The current specification
   provides a concrete API to perform advanced key-value data
   management that is at the heart of most sophisticated query
   processors. It does so by using transactional databases to
   store keys and their corresponding values (one or more per
   key), and providing a means of traversing keys in a
   deterministic order. Learn more about the Rich Web Client
   Activity.
