Specification for this project, in more detail:
a) The entire website must consist of one view, a page that loads completely only the once. Once the loaded the page must consist of at least 4 sub-sections, each section must load/reload or redisplay at least on other piece of information. This means in total there are 8 xml documents making up the web presence and that the page loads in it's entirety just the once. All pages must be written in xml, must use a transform to generate the output and may use xsl as required to style each of the sections. The sub-sections should change in response to any event chosen to load them or even on a timed event, all this without requiring the reload of the entire page, so ajax technologies are required here
b) Write an XML schema, against which your XML documents can be validated.
c) Design and build the website, containing the XML document you constructed in (a) above and validated in (b). It should also contain other text documents, and a selection of pictures, videos and/or sound files.The XML files should use xslt to transform the xml into XHTML.
d) The document should be accompanied by an XSL stylesheet, which will determine the visual style.
e) Ensure that one of the components in your website is a PDF document, describing your site. The styling for the PDF document must be done by XSL-FO (i.e. an XSL-FO stylesheet must be used)
The final coursework, as submitted, will consist of:
- The XML documents constructed in (a) above.
- The XML schemas constructed in (b) above.
- The XSLT documents constructed in (c) above.
- The XSL document constructed in (d) above.
- The XSL-FO document constructed in (f) above.
- The URL of the website you have constructed.
- A short report showing your site with some screen shots of the views of the sections.
