The industry bundles for pureXML™, published on alphaWorks, illustrate access to content stored on IBM® DB2® in XML, through small script or Java™-based applications. They are focused on populating, validating, and querying XML content that is pertinent to a specific industry. A pureXML industry bundle is typically a downloadable zip file that contains sample XML messages (XML instance documents), and scripts or Java code that populates one or more DB2 pureXML tables with the XML messages. The scripts also issue validation and query requests on the XML messages, and transform portions of the XML messages into relational tables. In this article, you'll learn about the industry-specific XML exchange formats, and learn how you can easily get started with implementing these solutions by downloading the industry bundles and viewing the interactive demonstrations.

To download the pureXML industry bundles from the Internet, please go to the IBM alphaWorks site: Select the Download Now option to retrieve the bundles. There are accompanying interactive demonstrations that illustrate access to stored XML content through a variety of interfaces such as regular Web browsers, feed readers, and XForms viewers. In addition, a selection of RESTful and SOAP-based Web services are exposed that enable access to the XML content.
