[announce] Dear XML Schema Dev,

A new XML tutorial by Dr. Kay entitled: "Buiding XML Workflow
Applications" has been published at:
http://www.stylusstudio.com/xml/workflow.html

The article argues that the bulk of the application logic
required for typical XML workflow applications can be modeled
using XML schema, then implemented in high-level XML processing
languages, notably XSLT and XQuery, with individual components
linked together in a pipeline processing framework.

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:

  Modeling XML Workflow Applications
  Choosing a Centralized or Decentralized Architecture
  The Life-Cycle of a Document
  Finding Resources using Directory Services Markup Language
  Writing XML Workflow Applications
