Fake real-time blog from XML 2006: day one

by Rick Jelliffe

I've just started going through the papers from XML 2006. I wish more people were putting their papers or slides up, so many are missing. Now that we have this new thing called the WWW, the readership for a paper is much more than just the conference participants; people like me on the other side of the world who weren't there would love to read many papers. (I'd love to read the papers from Kitsis, Champion, Kay and Melton for example, who I all admire tremendously.) So here's my fake realtime blog of the first day's proceedings...

We actually haven't quite reached the deadline for paper submission (I'll be done with mine in a day or two) but with it coming after the conference, most papers probably won't get done.

I'm sorry you couldn't come, Rick, but I'm glad you're enjoying the papers. The authors have until 18 December to submit, so with luck, most of them will be up in the next week or so. I'm putting them online as fast as I receive them.

Rick, along with the presentation (limited by time), there is a 40 page paper that goes into much more detail on using Agile techniques for XML Schema development. It can be found at the following URL:

Just a quick note that the test framework I mentioned was "TestNG", not "UnitNG" (easy mistake to make).
Cheers, Tony.
