XML Based Application Development

XML has become the de facto data interchange language of business. Silicon Digital Systems develops custom application components for clients desiring to integrate XML-enabled capabilities into their business computing systems.

Using a variety of development tools, Silicon Digital Systems has designed, developed and deployed custom XML applications that run within traditional client / server and web "n" tier architectures. Applications have been as straightforward as custom XML editing tools with specialized features added to support link specification and validation.

Schema Design services encompass the full range of activities associated with the design, deployment and support of schema specifications. Syntactically, these schemas can be formulated as traditional Document Type Definitions (DTDs) or as XML Schemas that can incorporate more elaborate content constraints.

Irrespective of syntactical form deployed, the main focus of the schema design effort is to establish the most appropriate XML markup vocabulary to be applied to an organization's or a business community's information transactions.

While on the surface schema design may appear to be a simple undertaking, the construction of effective, maintainable, and adaptable schemas demands that the business requirements are well understood, the types of automation that will be supported have been thoroughly explored, and the interpretative behavior of all information recipients has been documented. Where a business process is complex, the number of potential data elements to be addressed can be staggeringly large and it becomes the challenge of the schema design effort to introduce useful abstractions that can be used to "compress" the details. A guiding consideration is determining the level of information detail that must be accessible to the different types of processing that will occur. Historically, the tendency in schema design has been toward excessive detail and this leads directly to spirally implementation costs and erratic application behavior. Our XML designers have years of experience in developing XML based solutions.

Our application development teams work with such application development tools as Visual Studio .NET 2003, C# .NET, Visual Basic .NET, Java, C/C++, Visual Basic, Perl, PHP, Javascript, and XSLT to design and build applications that the client organizations can operate, maintain and evolve within the architectural guidelines that apply within their environments.
