Article about using libxml2/libxml++ for XML management

Post by kiklop »

Hi,

Recently I discovered this site and it looks great but it is too VCL-centric in my humble opinion. There quite a few other libraries that can be utilized with C++ Builder.

Since I extensively used libxml2/libxml++ with C++ Builder for almost a year and even contributed to libxml++ support for Borland compiler I volunteer to write article (or even two if needed) about this experience. What works, what does not work, some samples etc.

What do you think?

Sounds Good

I like the idea. We often forget there are other libs out there that will work with BCB. :)

Anybody else?

XML libraries

Go for it. I was looking into writing a wrapper around the MS XML library and then writing an article once I had merged the code into my MJFAF framework but would love to hear of your experiences first.

Ok. I'll start writing stuff and I hope next week I'll have something to send here.

Be sure to contact the editor before you write it all up to make sure the content is agreed. Additionally, submit your material to the editor rather than this forum.

Looking forward to reading it. I will still be considering my MS XML wrapper which could be presented as an alternative discussion.

As I have very little experience with XML can I recommend you do an initial article describing XML and all those other acronyms such as XSL. I know you can transform data presentation using this technology but I have no idea how. I'd love to learn about that first.

While you are on the subject, why not have a general article on what XML is and how it can be used by us BCB pluggers.

Hmm... You could almost do an whole issue on XML if everything worked out.

That is interresting point. I'll probably do that.

I recently made a BCB 6 Project cleaner using TinyXPath and TinyXML,
which worked very well for me.
