Hi

I need to know the differences between Standard 96 and Standard 66 for XML.

I have search in Google but there are a lot of 'noise'

Anybody know a document or web site with the differences, please?

Many Thanks

Hi,

A quick search in google states that ST.96 succeeds and is compatible with ST.66, ST.36, ST.86
96
66
then clearly go for ST.96.

Best regards,

Thanks

But I mean exactly the differences because I have to mapping from st66 to st 96. Which would be the best way to do it? Using XSLT?

Thanks again

Hi,

Seems that the standard 96 addresses this issue
(f) the Transformation Rules and Guidelines, i.e., Annex VI, which provides guidance for transformation between XML instances conforming to this Standard and XML instances validating against ST.36, ST.66 or ST.86 .

look for Annex VI.

I suppose that you are right and the adequate tool to achieve your goal would be XSLT transformation.


Best regards,

I have checked that it is very useful for tranformation. Thanks

But before I need to know exactly which tags are in 96 and which ines in 66. For example, if I have the tag <X> in st66 it corresponds <Y> st96 and so on.

I am afraid I will have to investigate it for myself because I donĀ“t find a doc with such info.

Do you have idea? Am I missing something?

Thanks

Hi Angus,

I think that all the documentation required could be found in the WIPO site.
With the 2 schemas (96 and 66) at hand I would check them against the 96 Annex VI (transformation from 66 to 96 guide ).

It's a hard work but seems that there is no other path.

Do you think that could be possible build a tool in any language , reutilize code or using an open source tool in order to automatize this kind of tasks? For example convert from ST 96 into ST 66 or ST 86

Thanks

Absolutely yes,

It has to be possible build such a tool with xslt or jaxb for example.
Try to search for existing resources like TM-XML tools


Cheers,

And for testing. How could I test a XMl in the 96?

Thanks

Hi Angus,

Sure that the xml parser / api that you choose (jaxb, xerxes, sax, jdk ...) will have the ability to validate the document against the schema xsd.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
