Hi Folks,

Over the past few months I have been spending my weekends creating a
technology to automatically generate GUIs from XML schemas and
e-catalogues.  With this technology it is possible to take the manual,
human effort out of building and maintaining Electronic Commerce Web
sites.  This technology  enables the automatic generation of
self-maintaining Web sites, for any domain.

Below is the announcement of this tool.  I welcome your thoughts and
suggestions.  /Roger

                       Electronic Commerce
               Achieving Aggregate Market Awareness 
                         at Internet Speed 
                        using XML technology

Announcing an Open Source tool which automatically generates Web pages
based upon an XML schema and conforming XML instance documents


   XML Schema + e-catalogs ---> AGUI tool --> Web page

AGUI = Automatic Graphical User Interface

The purpose of this tool is to provide automatic, continually up-to-date 
(self-maintaining), aggregate market awareness, across all domains.


Many Web sites today gather data from other Web sites and present an
aggregate view of the data. Of course the Internet is changing very
fast. Consequently, it is very difficult (and expensive) to maintain an
up-to-date aggregate view.  The purpose of the technology being
presented here is to provide a tool which automatically generates an
aggregate view of the data and is constantly up-to-date.  Further, this
tool works for any domain. Thus, this tool provides the capability to
have an automatically generated, self-maintaining search capability,
regardless of the domain.
