DEVX article examines OASIS CAM XML validation capabilities

Michael Sorens examines the capabilities of OASIS CAM in a series of articles on DEVX.

Part 1 and Part 2 are now available.

 Michael explains: "The generic-sounding Content Assembly Mechanism, or CAM, is actually an exciting step forward from XML Schema, but it's new, and not well documented. This article series represents CAM: The Missing Manual".

Michael continues: "CAM is more than just another schema language, though. It was designed to better meet the needs of business exchange requirements and interoperability. CAM provides a powerful mechanism for validating XML both structurally and semantically, in a concise, easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain format. It provides a context mechanism—a way to dynamically adjust what should be considered a valid XML instance based upon other parts of the XML itself or external parameters".
