Streaming Transformation for XML gets started
16:30, 19 Feb 2002 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

Petr Cimprich announced the creation of an "entry point" and mailing list to develop Streaming Transformations for XML (STX).

The project builds on discussion earlier on xml-dev:

"I'm playing with an idea of a streaming transformation language. I don't mean things like forward-only streamable subsets of XSLT or building subtrees on request only, but an alternative language designed for streaming transformations. From a bit different point of view, it would be a language to define SAX filters."

The initial draft expands on that plan, making explicit its lack of dependence on XPath and DOM and aiming "to be platform and implementation independent language".
