oXygen Users Meetup - Prague 2014

Agenda

SessionPresentersDescription
14:30 - 14:40Welcome to the oXygen users meetupGeorge Bina Syncro Soft Team MemberGeorge will present on overview of the meetup agenda. You can also meet the 6 oXygen team members that will be at XML Prague.
14:40 - 14:50Batch editing actions on highlights (Modify All, Remove All and Surround All) Alin Balasa Syncro Soft Team MemberAlin presents a newly introduced set of actions, available for highlighted content and designed to assist the user in quickly solving time consuming repetitive tasks such as fixing XML structure errors, renaming multiple occurrences of an attribute or even correcting misspelled words.
14:50 - 15:00Schema-less editing George Bina Syncro Soft Team MemberXML tools usually support editing with different helpers, taking advantage of the schema information. What happens when there is no schema, how can a tool assist users to create XML content in the absence of a schema or a DTD? Let's discover what support oXygen offers that does not look into a schema but into the document itself.
15:00 - 15:10How to develop XSLT stylesheets for Saxon-CE Radu Pisoi Syncro Soft Team MemberoXygen does not provide yet support for Saxon-CE but Radu will show you that there are some things you can do to be able to develop XSLT stylesheets for Saxon-CE.
15:10 - 15:20Working with XML Schema 1.1 and 1.0 Alin Balasa Syncro Soft Team MemberA quick demo about how to use the 'vc:minVersion' and 'vc:maxVersion' attributes for XML Schema. oXygen automatically detects the version set for the current XML Schema document, and configures the validation and the Content Completion Assistant accordingly.
15:20 - 15:30Schematron development with oXygenGeorge Bina Syncro Soft Team MemberThe support for developing Schematron schemas was improved a lot in the last release of oXygen to include enhanced validation of the Schematron schema, search and refactoring actions. See what is new on developing Schematron in oXygen.
15:30 - 15:40Schematron use-cases George Bina Syncro Soft Team MemberWhat can you do with Schematron? Let's explore some use cases of enforcing and checking different constraints on XML documents with Schematron.
15:40 - 15:50Controlled values Alex Jitianu Syncro Soft Team MemberWhat if some values in the XML document are contained by an external data source? Alex will show you how you can configure oXygen to assist the user to select values defined outside the XML document, in external data sources.
15:50 - 16:00Import to XML from different sources Iulian Velea Syncro Soft Team MemberSee how you can use oXygen to import existing data from relational databases, Excel sheets or text file (CSV files, tab separated values, etc.) as XML, so you can process that further with XML tools.
16:00 - 16:30Coffee break
16:30 - 16:40Automatic Text Analysis with oXygenFelix Sasaki Felix Sasaki joined the W3C in 2005 to work in the Internationalization Activity until March 2009. In 2012 he rejoined the W3C team as a fellow on behalf of DFKI. His main field of interest is the application of Web technologies for representation and processing of multilingual information.We will demo how to turn oXygen into a text analysis tool. The demo is based on freely available automatic text analysis Web services and the oXygen customization facilities. The DocBook 5.0 type has been adapted to allow automatic annotations of entities, while preserving the original DocBook markup. Use cases are, for example, disambiguation of named entities to ease localization of content
16:40 - 16:50TEI oXygen Framework for the Romanian Academic Dictionary Claudius Teodorescu Claudius Teodorescu is an XML consultant. He has more about 10 years of experience with XML related technologies.The main goal while working for the digitisation of the Romanian Academic Dictionary was to provide an easy way to create dictionary entries while using oXygen, along with reducing the information entered manually, as this can lead to human errors.

For this, they adopted the Author editing mode that allows a fast and easy way of styling the XML using CSS. By using CSS extensions authors can use text boxes, text area, combo boxes to edit XML data, buttons to trigger specific actions, as well as other various in-house developed components.

16:50 - 17:00Taking advantage of Master Files support when working with DocBook modules Radu Pisoi Syncro Soft Team MemberSee how you can work with DocBook modules, referenced through XInclude or as external entities, taking advantage of the Master Files support.
17:00 - 17:10Smart Paste between other applications and oXygenIulian Velea Syncro Soft Team MemberCopy/paste is a simple way of exchanging information between applications and implementing this intelligently allows to automatically convert from spreadsheet formats to XML and back, from different office applications to specific XML formats and to get nicely coloured XML code in your email.
17:10 - 17:20User-friendly interfaces Alex Jitianu Syncro Soft Team MemberIs it possible to get people that are not familiar with XML to create XML content? The answer is yes, but some work is needed to provide them a customized user interface that is tuned to use the concepts they are familiar with and that makes the editing easier. Alex will show you how such user-friendly XML authoring interfaces look like.
17:20 - 17:30Advanced search for resources Iulian Velea Syncro Soft Team MemberWhen you create XML content you may need to reference some other information from your current project but you do not know where exactly that information is. If you work on a project together with your colleagues and some of them annotated some files, how can you find those annotations to look over them? The advanced search for resources provides the answer to these questions and more.
17:30 - 17:40Using custom CSS pseudo-classes to create trigger editing of specific XML fragments Alex Jitianu Syncro Soft Team MemberoXygen supports user-defined pseudo-classes in CSS and these can be used to create a better user experience when editing XML documents. Alex will show you some examples of using this new functionality.
17:40 - 18:00What's next for oXygen?George Bina Syncro Soft Team MemberPanel discussing about the future oXygen.
