    The next meeting of the XML Users Group will be held on Wednesday,
    May 18, 2005 at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) at 2000
    Florida Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20009-1277. The meeting
    starts at 7:00 p.m. and usually last approximately 2 hours. If attending
    the meeting by Metro, get off the Dupont Circle stop and walk
    north to Florida Avenue...turn right.

    There is no cost associated with attending but if you are planning on
    attending this meeting, please let us know so that we can give a list to
    AGU management. You can register at:

    Testing XML Applications

    David Patterson will present a talk about a test tool developed for
    a large client/server application. It can test the XML traffic to
    the server and validate the responses. Several variations of the
    testing are described including a way to make do some data mining!
    Another use is in generating a random load on a server for performance

    Document Engineering: Methods, Tools, and Artifacts for Crossing
    the Data/Document Divide

    Document Engineering synthesizes the complementary ideas from
    document analysis and data modeling, emphasizing what they have in
    common and applying it with a unified focus to a broad range of
    documents and processes. The methods, tools, and artifacts used in
    Document Engineering build on those aspects of traditional document
    analysis that are appropriate for transactional documents while
    merging them with techniques from data modeling and object-oriented
    design. Combining these two approaches exploits the rigor of data
    modeling and normalization to make document analysis more systematic,
    while exploiting the heuristics and flexibility of the latter to make
    the former more pragmatic.


    Bob Glushko is an Adjunct Professor at the University of California at
    Berkeley in the School of Information Management and Systems, the
    Director of the Center for Document Engineering there, and a member of
    the board of directors of OASIS. He founded or co-founded three
    companies, the last of which was Veo Systems in 1997, which pioneered
    the use of XML for electronic commerce, inventing the first
    object-oriented XML schema language (SOX) and the first XML vocabulary
    for B2B (the XML Common Business Library, xCBL). After Veo's
    acquisition in 1999 by Commerce One, he headed Commerce One's XML
    architecture and technical standards activities and was named an
    "Engineering Fellow" in 2000. Glushko is the co-author (with Tim
    McGrath) of Document Engineering: Document Analysis and Design for
    Business Informatics and Web Services, MIT Press (2005).

    We hope to see you there.
