Registry Plus™ XMLExchange Plus

XMLExchange Plus and XMLPlus.dll are tools for reading and writing data exchange files formatted according to the NAACCR XML Data Exchange Standard Implementation Guide.External

Tasks performed by XMLExchange Plus include—

  • Dictionary Maintenance. This module is intended to help users who are not XML experts produce valid NAACCR XML dictionaries. This audience includes metafile administrators who may be asked to define a user dictionary based upon custom items collected at their registry.
  • Convert. This module converts data exchange files from the flat-buffer format to NAACCR XML format, or from NAACCR XML format to flat-buffer format.
  • Validate. Validation compares the contents of each item in the NAACCR XML data file to the definitions in the dictionary file(s) named in the header of the data file.
  • Run EDITS. This module runs EDITS against a NAACCR XML data file and creates a GenEDITS-style report (detail and summary).
