7:25 AM Interesting XUL things.

You might notice some unusual things about these XUL examples:

  1. <button ref="NC:BookmarksRoot" label="OK"
      oncommand="alert(document.getElementById('NC:BookmarksRoot').tagName);"/>
    
  2. <button id="NC:HistoryRoot" label="OK" oncommand="alert(this.resource);"/>
    
  3. <tree id="urn:animals:data" datasources="animals.rdf">
    ...
    </tree>

7:15 PM RPath Lives!

({urn:actor:Myers-Mike}^playedBy*)[not(contains(role*,'Evil'))]/role*

The question is, can you figure out what the expression above does? If so, then RPath passes the Syntax Is Comprehensible Test.

5:09 AM XUL Questions and Examples

A new section has been added to XulPlanet! It contains answers to some common XUL questions, and provides a number of new examples.

I'm hoping others might contribute additional examples.

By the way, we've moved to a new host, so if you see anything broken, let us know. I do want to thank the XML Workshop for hosting us for free all these years. But now that XulPlanet has gotten bigger, it's time to move on.

11:20 PM Scary Monsters

Last night I watched the movie Monsters, Inc. Now I realize why I've never seen any monsters in my closet. I've always had the kind of closet that slides open, yet now I know that monsters can only sneak into rooms via closets with standard doors that open outwards.

I feel a bit safer now.

12:56 AM RDF Stores

Anyone know of a good RDF storage system? I mean a file format that stores RDF data like a database. I'm thinking a Mozilla component could be written that could read and write it.

I ask as applications that use a lot of RDF could get quite large using serialized RDF files. Take a look at localstore.rdf -- it contains a lot of repeated text. That file could get quite large with lots of data in it.
