CTG Unveils Online XML Toolkit for Government Agencies

CTG is pleased to announce the release of the first version of its online XML Toolkit. The Toolkit is a product of the Center's XML Testbed, which served to assist New York State agencies in examining the benefits as well as the challenges of Web site management using the emerging technology of XML.

The Toolkit contains sections for getting started; practical approaches to getting XML up and running in a variety of environments; samples of different code; useful tools for XML development; helpful hints for specific XML tasks; and links to XML guides and reports. Each area has a "modest," "moderate," and "elaborate" approach to allow the user to start according to their unique environment. A special section will contain a complete deconstruction of the Toolkit Web site for anyone to see how the XML, XSL and ASP work together to produce the Toolkit Web pages. In addition, a feedback section will allow users to let CTG know what they think of the library and to contribute their own resources, code samples, or tips.
