An XML Repository Architecture for STEP Modules



Joshua Lubell


NIST is developing a web-based repository to serve as the core of a modular environment for developers of STEP, a family of product data exchange standards. Modules are represented in the repository as XML, enabling them to be treated both as documentation and as software components. A prototype implementation of the module repository uses XML and other emerging technologiecontent in a web browser in response to user input. No server-side processing is required.
