Submitted Materials

We, W3C Member Orbeon, Inc. hereby submit to the Consortium the following specification, comprising the following document(s) attached hereto:

  1. XML Pipeline Language (XPL) Version 1.0

which collectively are referred to as "the Submission". We request the Submission be known as the XPL Submission.


The purpose of the XPL submission is to advance work around an XML pipeline language, also known as XML processing model. Two W3C Notes have been published on the subject in 2002 and 2004. The first one describes an XML Pipeline Definition Language. The second one describes requirements for an XML Processing Model. The current submission, while formatted like a W3C Note, attemps to answer that list of requirements in the form of a draft specification for the XPL XML Pipeline Language. The specification lists a number of open issues, that we hope the submission will allow discussing. For this purpose, we would like the submission to be published as a W3C Note.
