Mapping Paradigm for Document Transformation

Abstract : Since the advent of XML, the ability to transform documents using transformation languages such as XSLT has become an important challenge. However, writing a transformation script (e.g. an XSLT stylesheet) is still an expert task. This paper proposes a simpler way to transform documents by defining a relation between two schemas expressed through our mapping language. And then by using a transformation process that applies the mapping instances of the schemas. Thus, a user only needs to focus on the mapping without having any knowledge about how a transformation language and its processor work. This paper outlines our mapping approach and language, and illustrates them with an example.
