-This example shows how to create an XML document by performing multiple
-serializations of its smaller parts. This can be useful when the
-document is too large to fit into memory or when the other end needs
-to start processing without waiting for the whole document (streaming).
+This example shows how to perform stream-oriented, partially in-memory
+XML processing using the C++/Tree mapping. With the partially in-memory
+parsing and serialization only a part of the object model is in memory at
+any given time. With this approach we can process parts of the document
+as they become available as well as handle documents that are too large
+to fit into memory.
The example consists of the following files:
- XML Schema which describes a collection of data records.
+ XML Schema which describes a simple object position vocabulary. The
+ position is represented as a potentially large series of latitude and
+ longitude measurements.
- C++ types that represent the given vocabulary as well as serialization
- functions. These are generated by XSD from records.xsd.
+ Sample object position document.
+ C++ types that represent the position vocabulary as well as parsing
+ and serialization functions. These are generated by XSD from
+ position.xsd.
+ Stream-oriented DOM parser implementation that is built on top of the
+ Xerces-C++ SAX2 parser in the progressive parsing mode. This parser
+ allows us to parse an XML document as a series of DOM fragments.
+ Stream-oriented DOM serializer implementation that allows us to
+ serialize an XML Document as a series of object model fragments.
- Driver for the example. It progressively serializes one thousand data
- record into a file (out.xml).
+ Driver for the example. It first parses the input file into a series
+ of DOM fragments which are then parsed into the object model fragments.
+ The driver prints the information from the document as it becomes
+ available. The driver then creates a new XML document (out.xml) by
+ creating and serializing a series of object model fragments.
To run the example simply execute:
-$ ./driver
+$ ./driver position.xml
+The serialization results are written to the out.xml file.
