XML has proved to be a scalable archival format for messages of various kinds (e.g. email with MarkMail). It is also increasingly used as format of choice for several event models and taxonomies (XES, OASIS/SAF, CEE, XDAS) that need be both processable and human readable. As many eBusiness processes are also relying on XML for message content and/or protocol, there is a need to monitor and validate the messages and documents being exchanged as well as their sequences. XTemp is an XML vocabulary and execution language that is event-centric and intended for the analysis of sequence of events that represent traces of business processes. It is designed for both log analysis and real-time execution. It leverages XPath and XSLT.
