Non-xml best practice

Hi all,

I would appreciate if anyone that has worked with non-xml doc (like pictures etc.) storage, can share their wisdom / experiences with me. This is a follow up question to Storing and retrieving non-xml data.

I’m building an application that stores pictures from a folder, these pictures are then processed and then linked to a client. I’m using VB 6 and the activex api’s, is there a better way?

How do I store the data, do I need to have a seperate collection / doc that stores the information about the non-xml or can I combine them in one?
How do I search for docnames, how do I find the ino:id’s?
How do I delete the document?
The documentation is rather vague on these issues.

Thanks Jean

Hi Jean,

Hi all.

My TSD for 3-d versions of Tamono and TSD:

But I had undestanded problems with 4-d versions of Tamino and TSD for previos schema.

My TSDs for 4-d versions of Tamono and TSD:

and

It’s all.
