WAQL-PP 0.1 released

With this post I am proud to announce the first release of WAQL-PP, a WAQL Preprocessor for Java I was working on for the last two weeks. In one of the former posts I described the motivation behind this little project and how I planned to implement it. I’m rather satisfied with the result, so without further ado comes a copy of the release notes for this version. If you are interested just visit the project page to check it out.

WAQL-PP 0.1 released.
This is the first release of the WAQL Preprocessor for Java. Here is a short
list of the most important features:
  * Resolves Data Dependencies between separate queries by converting
    replacement objects into a textual representation.
  * Handles nested Data Dependencies from innermost to outermost.
  * Transforms Template List constructs into valid XQuery for-clauses and
    handles correlations between different Template Lists.
  * Parser tested against the XML Query Test Suite (XQTS).
This release was developed against and tested with Java SE 1.6.0_22. It uses
Apache Ant as a build tool, JUnit 4.8.2 for testing purposes, JavaCC 5.0 as a
parser generator and has no additional runtime dependencies. It is currently
being used as a component in the WS-Aggregation framework.
Information about the project and general documentation can be found on

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
