Integrating XML and Java to Build Server Side ArcIMS Applications
Track: Application Development
Author(s): Nianwei Liu
ArcXML is the protocol for communication between different components of ArcIMS software. This paper focuses on how to build server-side ArcIMS application using XML at Java platform. The paper first discusses some architectural consideration of ArcIMS application, and outlines the basic components and work flow of a Java server-side solution. The paper then
discusses several approaches in detail, including using Java API for XML Parsing(JAXP), a specific W3C Document Object Model(DOM) implementation, Simple DOM for ArcXML (AxlDOM), and a non DOM based, primitive data type model: Java Objects for ArcXML(AxlObjects) combined with Simple API for XML Parsing (SAX) . Finally, the paper introduces a case study of an ArcIMS application in a JSP framework.
