Lesson 3: Exploring the XML universe

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Dr Chgman's Training about XML services in ChangeMan ZMFTo actually start using the XML services, probably the biggest challenge is to become aware (and learn how to use) each of the available XML services.

This lesson starts with providing a functional overview of all available XML services, with an overview organised corresponding to the major ChangeMan ZMF concepts like administration, packages and components. Afterwards some special XML services (utilities and transfer facilities) are explained.

The lesson also explains the most commonly used XML services, and briefly describes ChangeMan ZMF features that are not available via XML.

The lesson ends with some details about the dependency of XML services from one ChangeMan ZMF release to another.
