XML Representation of EXPRESS Models and Data



Joshua Lubell, Edward J. Barkmeyer Jr.


EXPRESS is a modeling language for use in engineering data exchange standards that combines the entity-attribute-relationship and object modeling paradigms. This paper discusses some issues we encountered when attempting to represent EXPRESS models and data sets as XML (Extensible Markup Language). Our experience should be applicable to other projects concerned with providing XML-based exchanges of information modeled in relational or object-oriented languages.
