I was actually trying to use the catalog file, by defaulting to a DTD that defines the entity. my goal is to successfully parse the file: &message; I want to define the entity 'message' in a local DTD, and use a local catalog file to point to this DTD. I was following the details at, http://xerces.apache.org/xerces2-j/faq-xcatalogs.html for using it in Xerces-J. I think, we can define the catalog file as: 1. OASIS XML catalog format, or 2. The catalog text format described by OASIS TR 9401 I found that OASIS TR 9401 format... (more)

Re: XML Design Guidelines for Facilitating the Creation and Pr

Hi Roger, Your stated example below (XHTML with embedded MathML) is the kind of example that is often given for a compound document, and it has a slightly different set of needs than your example instance given earlier. The example instance given earlier (the classic 'marking up a book' example) does not state explicitly its use but it implies it because of the way that example is often used - it is an example of marking up data that will be typically used for such things as querying, exchange of data, and perhaps transformation to a presentation format. The example of XHTML and embedded mathml is of an XML format that has an end media purpose - it should be presented in some way (although others may argue that this is wrong) - thus the problem there is - how to combine markup without explicit presentational parameters with markup that does have explicit presentatio...

How OpenKM's Technical Debt Decreased by 49% Through Code Refactoring

Technical Debt is worth nothing if no pragmatic action is taken into code, in order to control and tackle it. To ilustrate the Scertify's capability to automatically correct code defects that increase this unintended debt, we performed code refactoring on OpenKM, an Free/Libre document management system. The initial Technical Debt of the project has been reduced by 49.2% from 84 days to 42 days. Here, at Tocea, we call it the Debt Write-Off. For this first Debt Write-Off, we have decided to perform the refactoring of OpenKM (6.2.1-DEV). According to Wikipedia, OpenKM is a Free/Libre document management system that provides a web interface for managing arbitrary files. OpenKM is a great tool but an audit of the code revealed some technical debt problems. That was a good opportunity to use Scertify and to be useful to an open-source community. The application consist... (more)

How to: Build Client Web Parts in SharePoint 2013 with Office Developer Tools RTM

This is the third time (and hopefully final) I am writing this post about building Client Web Parts (App Parts) for SharePoint 2013 with Visual Studio 2012.  This is largely due to the Office Developer Tools going through a few iterations (Preview 1 and Preview 2).  I don’t want to leave out-dated information out there, so here is the updated version.  The process remains largely the same, but a few of the screens have changed and what Visual Studio produces for us has changed significantly since Preview 1. When you create the project, the first two steps look pretty much the same as Preview 1 and Preview 2. The next step looks the same as well.  For our example, we’ll go with a SharePoint-hosted app again. The good news is, in Preview 2 they’ve added a wizard that helps you get stared with client web parts.  This wizard does three things for you.  It creates an ... (more)

BASF Podcast: the Chemical Reporter - Why do Potatoes get Softer When you Cook Them, While Eggs get Harder?

LUDWIGSHAFEN, Germany, September 16 /PRNewswire/ -- It's strange, isn't it? In both cases you're dropping something you want to eat into a pot of boiling water, but what happens to the spud is the exact opposite of what happens to the egg. The secret involves the chemical make-up of the potato. It consists largely of starch. It's a different story entirely with eggs. They're composed mostly of proteins.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
