Change Control for XML: Do It Right

In XML, standard tools fail to identify changes precisely, meaningfully and completely. Learn how to solve this problem intelligently, representing changes in an XML format that allows downstream processing in an XML pipeline.

The XML Change Control Solution

XML is fast becoming the standard format for data exchange. As applications and processes are increasingly designed to depend upon XML it is becoming essential to accurately identify and control changes to this XML data.

DeltaXML provides a proven technology for identifying changes to your XML data and documents and represents those changes in XML. Whether your need is for content management, versioning, regression testing of XML software, data synchronisation or B2B exchange, DeltaXML provides the most comprehensive system for change control of your XML data.

Within this Conference Paper we:

  • Understand how DeltaXML’s toolkits solve common problems when comparing XML documents.
  • Review the possible opportunities that come from intelligently handling XML change.
  • Understand why XML change control is important and why other comparison tools struggle to find real change.
