[July 06, 2000] The 'JXML' format was apparently renamed 'JigXML' sometime after September, 1999.
[September 09, 1999] W3C Jigsaw Web Server Uses XML Serialization (JXML). The W3C has recently released Jigsaw version 2.1.0, which uses XML serialization. New XML serialization scheme implemented in the current version of Jigsaw is documented as the the JXML format. "Jigsaw is W3C's leading-edge Web server platform, providing a sample HTTP 1.1 implementation and a variety of other features on top of an advanced architecture implemented in Java. The W3C Jigsaw Activity statement explains the motivation and future plans in more detail. Jigsaw is an W3C Open Source Project, started May 1996; see the license for details." The Jigsaw XML format (JXML) is a "format used by Jigsaw to store the resources metadata. A JXML file describes a set of resources metadata, each container (e.g.: a directory) save its children's metadata in such a file (via the ResourceStoreManager). The Jigsaw XML DTD is supplied as part of the documentation. An XSL example is also provided: "an example of what can be done with JXML and XSL. . . in this example, the JXML file is transformed to an HTML file using the following XSL rules." In this version a new administration exchange format, also using JXML, allows one to create administration scripts; a new upgrader will automatically convert the old Jigsaw stores to the new format, and the old stores are kept in a backup directory, as explained in the Jigsaw Release Notes. The Java source and the documentation are available for download.
