lications, each of which can transform the data into their unique input requirements, using the XML family of specifications. XML validation capabilities ensure that data files can be error free, eliminating many runtime application problems. NSS is currently developed as an application that accesses information from a proprietary commercial object-oriented database that does not support XML interchange. Extending NSS to become an XML-based application is now possible using an XML schema that represents the NSS database. Because the proprietary NSS codebase is not readily modifiable, such XML scenario import/export is achieved via text -based data file conversions. Development of an NSS XML schema and exemplars opens up a powerful new direction for future work.
