Articles about using XML please

Like I suggest to C++ Builder Developer's Journal about a year ago, I'd like to read articles about using XML (SAX and DOM) parser (like Xerces) with C++ Builder professional: installation and use (application).

I'd like to use something more tranportable (Windows, Linux, etc.), freed from platforms, more standard, more universal (so, I want to stay away as far as I can from anything from Microsoft), more portable.

I want to access data, as easily as possible, from file in XML format using DTD or Schema like file used by OpenOffice.org, DocBook or C++ Builder[/b]'s project file.

The trend take by [b]C++ Builder Developer's Journal
since a year, mostly database (TDataSource), Web (WebSnap, Intraweb, Web Server), graphics (GDI) and programming techniques (Multithreading, Singletons, Synchronization, Design Patterns, Bit fields, Exceptions, auto_ptr, functionoids), don't meet my needs.

I can find a lot of information about programming techniques elsewhere (others magazines, books and Internet), so I don't need it in C++ Builder Developer's Journal; I need C++ Builder Developer's Journal to show me how to do special things with C++ Builder. Database (may be too much), graphics and Web are OK, but C++ Builder Developer's Journal lacks XML a lot.

XML is very important. Web will already depends on it (every browser must support it, XML and XHTML). All software will have to support it (if not supporting it yet, like OpenOffice.org). There's already a lot of files formats standard using XML. It used in all domains: Internet, desktop software and even database.

So, why there's nothing yet about it in C++ Builder Developer's Journal?

Hi,
This is a good suggestion, and I will pass this info along to our editors. Thanks for the feedback.

Cheers,
Damon

There's been a few articles on boost, e.g., Januay 2010 [Using Boost: circular_buffer (M. Smith)] and March 2010 [Using Boost: Boost.Any (M. Smith)].
