Quick Start for Persisting XML Standards-Compliant Data
August 18, 2008
XML-based standards have emerged in many industries. For instance, there is ACORD in insurance, FIXML in financial services, NIEM in government, and so on.
Are you evaluating options for persisting standards-compliant XML data? If so, you should know about a great resource. As you know, you can freely download IBM DB2, which is a data server for both relational and XML data. Well, IBM has also made available working demos for a number of XML standards, including ACORD, FIXML, FpML, MISMO, NIEM, OTA, TAX1120, TWIST, UNIFI, and more. The demos show end-to-end XML data exchange, together with data retrieval via RESTful Web services, Atom feeds, and XForms.
You can see the demos for yourself at:
