A Binary XML for Scientific Applications

K. Chiu, T. Devadithya, W. Lu, A. Slominski
First International Conference on e-Science and Grid Computing (e-Science'05)  
In this paper we present a binary XML format and implementation for scientific data called Binary XML for Scientific Applications (BXSA).  ...  These results challenge the prevailing practice of handling control and data separately in scientific applications, with web services for control and specialized binary formats for data.  ...  Therefore, we have developed a specific binary XML format called Binary XML for Scientific Applications (BXSA) (pronounced "bix-sah").  ...

Rapid Real-Time Interdisciplinary Ocean Forecasting Using Adaptive Sampling and Adaptive Modeling and Legacy Codes: Component Encapsulation Using XML [chapter]

Constantinos Evangelinos, Robert Chang, Pierre F. J. Lermusiaux, Nicholas M. Patrikalakis
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Legacy applications of this form are encapsulated using XML. We present a method that uses XML documents to describe the parameters for executing a binary.  ...  Such binaries, that are most common in scientific applications, expect a standard input stream, maybe some command line options, a set of input files and generate a set of output files as well as standard  ...  By providing a detailed XML description for a binary, this binary is treated as a black-box.  ...

SOAP-binQ: high-performance SOAP with continuous quality management

Balasubramanian Seshasayee, K. Schwan, P. Widener
2004 24th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems, 2004. Proceedings.  
This paper aims to make SOAP useful for high end or resource-constrained applications. The basic idea is to replace SOAP's XML/Ascii-based parameter representations with binary ones.  ...  Such client-and network-aware data filtering has been shown useful for a variety of applications and platforms, including to control the data volumes required for remote 3D visualizations across the Internet  ...  SOAP-binQ: Sample Applications We present three applications -a scientific application, an image application, and a commerical application , and describe a fourth, a visualization application, that are  ...

GPML: an XML-based standard for the interchange of genetic programming trees

Tiantian Dou, Yuri Kaszubowski Lopes, Peter Rockett, Elizabeth A. Hathway, Esmail Saber
2019 Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines  
We propose a Genetic Programming Markup Language (GPML), an XML-based standard for the interchange of genetic programming trees, and outline the benefits such a format would bring.  ...  The coupling of the end-application and the GP training/test software is a major inconvenience, especially in embedded systems.  ...  In a given application, an XML file has to conform to a specified structure.  ...

An ontology driven architecture for derived representations of macromolecular structure

D. S. Greer, J. D. Westbrook, P. E. Bourne
2002 Bioinformatics  
An object metamodel based on a standard scientific ontology has been developed and used to generate a CORBA interface, an SQL schema and an XML representation for macromolecular structure (MMS) data.  ...  In addition to the interface and schema definitions, the metamodel was also used to generate the core elements of a CORBA reference server and a JDBC database loader.  ...  Support for this effort was provided through the Protein Data Bank (Grant DBI-9814284) and the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (Grant ACI-9619020).  ...

Tara D. Talbott, Karen L. Schuchardt, Eric G. Stephan, James D. Myers
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we describe a complementary approach -a general capability for articulating the format of arbitrary textual and binary data using a logical data model, expressed in XML-Schema, which can  ...  This work is based on the draft specification for the Data Format Description Language and our open source "Defuddle" parser.  ...  However, extending XML technology to handle arbitrary un-tagged, binary and textual files would make the extensive XML tools applicable to scientific data and provide analogous benefits.  ...

Standardization of the MSA/MAS/AMAS Hyper-Dimensional File Format

Aaron Torpy, Mike Kundmann, Nick Wilson, Colin MacRae, Nestor J. Zaluzec
2017 Microscopy and Microanalysis  
The XML file is used to define the layout of the binary data in the HMSA file in a human-readable format, which would not be possible if this information was stored within the binary file itself.  ...  The XML file is divided into three sections. The first section is the 'header', which may be used to record non-scientific metadata such as the creation date and owner.  ...

Migration to Intermediate XML for Electronic Data (MIXED): Repository of Durable File Format Conversions

René Van Horik, Dirk Roorda
2011 International Journal of Digital Curation  
It can be used, for example, for the binary DataPerfect format, that was used on a large scale about twenty years ago, and for which no existing XML schema could be found.  ...  Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS), the Dutch scientific data archive for the social sciences and humanities, is engaged in the Migration to Intermediate XML for Electronic Data (MIXED) project  ...  But we expect that, over time, the SDFP format will change at a much slower rate than the individual binary application formats, which makes the application of the MIXED framework an appropriate option  ...
