Implementing XML Schema Naming and Design Rules



Joshua Lubell, Boonserm Kulvatunyou, Katherine C. Morris, Betty Harvey


We are building a methodology and tool kit for encoding XML schema Naming and Design Rules (NDRs) in a computer-interpretable fashion, enabling automated rule enforcement and improving schema quality. Through our experience implementing rules from various NDR specifications, we discuss some issues and offer practical guidance to organizations grappling with NDR development.
