Paper Abstract

In the near future broadband networks will become available to large groups of people. The amount of bandwidth available to these users in the future will be much more than it is now. The availability of bandwidth will give birth to a number of new applications. Application developers will need a framework that enable them to utilize the possibilities of these new networks. In this article we present a document type that will allow the addition of (meta-) information to data streams and the synchronization of a different data streams. It is called SXML (Streaming XML) and is based on the eXtensible Markup Language (XML). The SXML grammar is defined in a document type definition (SXML-DTD). The content of an SXML document can be processed real time or can be retrieved from disk. XML is being used in a complete new manner and in a totally different environment in order to easily describe the structure of the stream. Finally, a preliminary implementation has been developed and is being tested.
