Additional topics covered include:

  • Naming Resources, including Public Identifiers and Uniform Resource Names
  • Understanding Catalog Files, including OASIS XML Catalogs, OASIS TR9401 Catalogs, XCatalogs, and Resolution Semantics
  • Using Catalogs with Popular Applications
  • Adding Catalog Support to Your Applications
  • Catalogs In Action, including using resolver and xparse

Resolver Classes and JavadocTM API doumentation is also available on the XML Developer Connection web site. Additional technical details for this article are available online.

The download is also available online, including information on system requirements and file size. This download package includes Java classes, JavaDoc API documentation, and step-by-step instructions explaining how to use and customize the resolver components. These classes can be used directly "out of the box" with their applications (such as Xalan and Saxon) or customized to suit your particular needs. It includes Binary Code and Sample Code.
