How SXML is used in industry and government

SXML is an S-expression-based data format for XML, and for manipulation and querying of XML. A paper and a complementary talk introduce SXML tools and describe the extensive practical experience of using SXML in real-life commercial and government projects.

The paper and the talk give motivation for and practical examples of S-expression-based implementations of W3C XML Recommendations, the embedding of XML data and XML query and manipulation tools into Scheme. A combination of W3C conformance with seamless integration into a programming language is a distinctive feature of our tools.

The paper and the talk are written in SXML itself, and are available from SSAX project's CVS repository. PDF files are available from:
