Understanding XML Server

Written by Balaji B

XML Server can be a Web Server that storesrepparttar XML files in it and serves them on demand. The XML Server would have processing capabilities with an XML engine and to transformrepparttar 149796 XML document to other forms. Basically a server which hosts and servesrepparttar 149797 XML documents is called a XML Server.

There are many commercially available XML Servers inrepparttar 149798 market. The popular among them arerepparttar 149799 Tamino Server,repparttar 149800 Sonic Server andrepparttar 149801 FDX XML Server. Thoughrepparttar 149802 basic functions of these servers are samerepparttar 149803 way they are implemented andrepparttar 149804 features that they support varies.

The Tamino XML Server is from Software AG and is used to publish and exchange all kinds of data especiallyrepparttar 149805 XML documents inrepparttar 149806 native format. It handles open standards. Leveraging onrepparttar 149807 XML technologies will improve an organizations data access.

Exchange of data between different applications on different platforms is possible using XML technologies. Hence organizations are moving on to store their data in XML format to take advantage ofrepparttar 149808 XML technologies. Storingrepparttar 149809 data in XML format improvesrepparttar 149810 performance of delivery and scalability of your applications with low operational and administrative costs.

In traditional relational databases, data is stored in rows and columns which can be too complex. But inrepparttar 149811 case of an XML Server such complexity is avoided and any data can be stored which includes even multimedia files and even relational data. These data can be easily retrieved at lightning speed using a Tamino XML Server.

To retrieve data that is requested by any application, XQuery is used in Tamino XML Server. This server implementsrepparttar 149812 XQuery specification draft. Hence queries onrepparttar 149813 server can be issued usingrepparttar 149814 internet and data can be returned in any format by using XSL style sheets. Thusrepparttar 149815 customers can manipulaterepparttar 149816 format of presentation ofrepparttar 149817 data that is presented using style sheets. High speed retrieval of data is possible in XML Server.

The Tamino XML Server is robust, reliable, and scalable. It is used in mission critical environments and there is almost no failure and loss of data. It is reliable inrepparttar 149818 sense it supports backup of data that can be stored in external devices or remote devices and used in clustered environments. The number of users can be increased andrepparttar 149819 load onrepparttar 149820 server can also be increased.

The document structure can take additional elements without changingrepparttar 149821 entire structure ofrepparttar 149822 data store. These characteristics ofrepparttar 149823 XML Server help it to be used in mission critical environments. Developers can develop XML applications very faster by using Tamino XML Server. It can be easily integrated with application servers.

Buying a Satellite Navigation (Satnav) system for your car

Buying a Satellite Navigation (Satnav) system for your car.

Once they were only forrepparttar rich and were only fitted inrepparttar 149723 very high end cars but today SatNav systems are available to all. You can either opt forrepparttar 149724 in-car fitted systems that are still quite expensive or you can go forrepparttar 149725 handheld or protable units. This article is aboutrepparttar 149726 latter.

What is SatNav?

SatNav is a system that comprises of 2 elements, a GPS data receiver and a CPU/display unit. The receiver gets information from orbiting GPS navigational satellites and communicates it torepparttar 149727 CPU/display unit. This unit is then able to find its exact location onrepparttar 149728 planet by comparing signals from various satellites.

The unit incorporates road maps ofrepparttar 149729 area and places an indicator onrepparttar 149730 map showing whererepparttar 149731 car is onrepparttar 149732 maps.

Features The units allow you to plan a journey ahead of time and thenrepparttar 149733 unit will guide you to you destination by displaying a map showing you where you are andrepparttar 149734 direction you should be heading. Most now have voice instructions sorepparttar 149735 unit will tell you, when you are approaching a junction, which turning you should take. The units are also capable of making real time adjustments torepparttar 149736 route, this means that if you gorepparttar 149737 wrong wayrepparttar 149738 until will recalculaterepparttar 149739 route to your destination taking into accountrepparttar 149740 wrong turning you have just made.

Maps The maps forrepparttar 149741 unit can be loaded forrepparttar 149742 different regions you visit, so they may have a map ofrepparttar 149743 UK and another for France and so on. Most modern unit haverepparttar 149744 maps stored on a removable memory cards like SD cards or similar memory card but some units read directly from a CD or DVD. The display can be set to showrepparttar 149745 conventional flat map view orrepparttar 149746 new 3D view that shows a view as if it was above you and looking forward. This view is very good and clear.

Traffic Some units offer systems that will warn you of road works/traffic jams etc as they happen, and offer suggestion as to how to avoid them.

POI Most units have POI's (Points of Interest) incorporated into them that will show things like garages, restaurants, historic sites, airport and ferries etc. You can also add your own POI's of your favourite places. One POI that is very popular isrepparttar 149747 location of allrepparttar 149748 speed camera and accident black spot locations.
