Customizing Content with XML: Dynamic News Application, 16 of 16
Dynamic News can also import and export XML documents that conform to the Resource description framework Site Summary (RSS) standard. Developed by Netscape as a way to share data channels, RSS is used at Web sites such as my.netscape.com and slashdot.org.
An application can use RSS to syndicate its news pages (making them available to RSS hosts) and to aggregate news from other RSS sites. For example, Dynamic News includes the
xmlnews.admin.RSSHandler class. It uses a specified DTD to parse and extract news items from a specified file, and then it stores the items in a Hashtable. The class also provides a method that returns the elements in that Hashtable.
