What is GPS?
GPS is an implementation of the groves and property set concepts defined in the HyTime and DSSSL standards. GPS is written in Python, and should work* on any platform to which Python have been ported - including the Java Platform.
There are two implementations in the current distribution, one in-memory implemention and one that supports ZODB - the Zope Object Database. Both groves, property sets and grove plans can be made persistent by the ZODB implementation.
Loading of property sets from documents conforming to the Property Set DTD, or any derived DTD [requires architectural processing].
Grove plans. Default grove plans is automatically created by wrapping a GrovePlan object around a property set. Inclusion and omitting of modules, classes and properties are fully supported.
Two grove node implementations, both generic classes for representing grove nodes.
ZODB - Zope Object Database versions of all grove, property set and grove plan classes.
Module for building XML groves from SAX event streams. This module also contains a class for emitting SAX events by walking XML groves.
Sample Property Sets
- Python 1.5.2 or newer 
- An SGML/XML parser with a SAX driver
- SAX for Python 
- xmlarch 0.25, optional unless architectural processing is needed 
* The ZODB implementation won't work in a Java environment, since the ZODB contains code written in C.
GPS - Groves and Property Sets for Python version 0.10 - an implementation of the groves and property set concepts defined in the HyTime and DSSSL standards. (10-Nov-1999)
