Editorial Reviews

Review

"XML and Schemas are now taking the enterprise world by storm. Understanding how to leverage their abilities is essential to those who already use XML from fields such as the web, content and knowledge management, and e-business. But it is equally important that experts in other technologies, such object-oriented or relational technology, build their understanding of XML Schemas. Specifications such as the XML Schema Recommendations produced by the Working Group must focus on defining technology and do not have the luxury of explaining motivation, design issues and applications. This book fills that need admirably."―From the foreword by Dave Hollander, CTO, Contivo, Inc.; Co-chair W3C XML Schema Working Group.

Book Description

This is the best book out there on XML. If you want an intro to XML get Mark Johnson's article "XML for the Absolute Beginner." If you want to go in depth, this is the place to go.
Unlike the hundreds of other books that just describe what XML and XML Schema are, Daum's book gets deeply into why it is the way it is, by exploring how it fits in with conceptual modeling and how you would fit it into a complex environment.
He introduces a beguiling simple example domain (jazz musicians) which he revisits over and over again throughout the book. Through this simple example he works out subtle differences in different approaches to modeling, to schema construction, to constaint definition and modeling and finally how would you map this back to Object or Relational technology.
He introduces Asset Oriented Modeling, which is a form of conceptual modeling more attuned to XML schema model creation. His treatement of polymorphism in Schema, and techniques for evolving schema are as good as I've seen anywhere.
Excellent treatment of constraints, both conceptually as well as practical approaches to realizing the constraints in XPath or XSLT. These were worth the price of the book by themselves.
It's probably too late, but if you get no other book on XML and XML Schemas, this is the one to get.

I just finished reading "Modeling business Objects with XML Schema" for the second time. It is the most useful book on XML modeling that I have read. After defining the ERM and UML modeling techniques, the author introduces AOM (Asset-Oriented Modeling) in a simple and thorough way. The book emphasizes on the best practices for modeling heterogeneous and multi-namespace systems. It emphasizes on the compatibility of the XML Schema with RDF and SQL. The reuse and composition of XML Schemata constitute the main focus of the book. The example given in the book is processed through several iterations and improvements, with complete and clear explanations for improving the XML code. The KLEEN Modeler tool ([...]) is used to create the conceptual models throughout the book. Mapping the XML Schema code into SQL, and normalization of the XSD code is clearly defined. The XML metalanguage itself, is concisely and efficiently covered in the book. I highly recommend this book; you learn a lot from this book.

It may be objected that you shouldn't be doing business modeling directly using XML schemas. But if you need to (and a good example is the National Information Exchange Model, or NIEM -- see [...]), then this book has content you won't find anywhere else, at least not in one place or at this level of exposition.

I have used this both to understand NIEM and to critique it, including many new trends, such as Schematron validation for NIEM.
