Overview

eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and Unified Modeling Language (UML) are two of the most significant advances from the fields of Web application development and object-oriented modeling. Modeling XML Applications with UML reveals how to integrate these two technologies to create dynamic, interactive Web applications and achieve optimal business-to-business application integration.

This book focuses on the design and visual analysis of XML vocabularies. It explores the generation of DTD and Schema languages from those vocabularies, as well as the design of enterprise integration and portals--all using UML class diagrams and use case analysis. Also featured are extensive details on the deployment of XML vocabularies and portals, showing how to put these elements to work within distributed e-business systems. You will learn practical techniques that can be applied to both small and large system development projects using either formal or informal processes.

For those who may be new to XML and UML, the book includes a brief overview of these topics, although some background knowledge in these areas is recommended.

Topic coverage includes:

  • An overview of XML vocabularies, HTML presentations, and XSLT stylesheets
  • An overview of the UML diagrams and the Unified Process
  • Defining business vocabulary and creating XML Schemas
  • Designing and customizing e-business portals using XML
  • Mapping UML to XML, including UML relationships to XML hyperlinks
  • Generating XML Schemas from the UML class diagrams
  • Transforming custom XML vocabularies into the RosettaNet XML standard
  • Transforming XML vocabularies into HTML using XSLT
  • Transforming XML documents into Portlets
  • Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) as an XML-based messaging standard for business-to-business integration

A large-scale example runs throughout the book to illustrate important concepts and techniques. Each chapter also features "Steps for Success," a list of tips and issues to consider when planning for a more effective design effort.
