XML Component Dictionary capabilities are provided in conjunction with the CAM Editor toolset. These dictionaries accelerate the development of consistent XML information exchanges using standard sets of dictionary components.
The quick tutorials are aimed at showing the 'how to' of the basic
capabilities to jump start use of XML dictionaries with the CAM Editor.
The collection of dictionary tutorials videos run for a total of approximately 20 minutes. Each video can be reviewed individually also.
Learn how to use the dictionary functions to create dictionaries by
harvesting data model components from existing XSD schema, SQL database
table schema, or simple Excel / Open Office spreadsheets with tables of

Included in the latest release of the CAM Editor is the ability to
use the analyse dictionary tool to determine duplicate components,
conflicting component definitions, missing component descriptions and so
on. This ensures high quality dictionary component specifications.
Using the CAM Editor you can also create MindMap models and UML physical
models of your dictionary components sets.
