XMLBooster’s DTD support
DTD’s are a formalism to describe the structure and content of a set of XML messages. DTD’s are thus quite similar to XMLBooster’s own meta-definitions, except for the fact that DTD’s only describe the XML structures, not their mapping to a host data structure as XMLBooster does.
XMLBooster includes both a DTD-to-metadefinition and a metadefinition-to-DTD translator.
When translating an XMLBooster meta-definition to an equivalent DTD, some of the information is lost, as the meta-definition formalism addresses issues such as data typing (integer, booleans, etc.) which DTD’s don’t support.
