z/OS XML System Services functions

z/OS XML System Services include the following three primary functions:
  • A query service that allows callers to determine the encoding of the document and acquire information from the XML declaration.
  • Parsing with schema validation
  • Parsing without validation
These functions are provided in the form of callable services. A caller can access these services through the z/OS XML System Services APIs (for information on the APIs, see z/OS XML XL C/C++ API and z/OS XML parser API: Assembler ). The following sections provide a summary of the functions, with pointers on where to go for more information.
Note: For information about the separately orderable product XML Toolkit for z/OS, which contain both the XML Parser, C++ Edition and XSLT Processer, C++ Edition, see XML Toolkit for z/OS V1R10 User's Guide.
