Aqueducts: A Layered Pipeline-Based Architecture for XML Processing
Aqueducts define a variant of the pipe-filter style designed to handle and manage semi-structured data streams, including those describing system structures themselves, such as XML-based architecture descriptions. This style is based on the concept of aqueduct, a higher-order filter which comprises a sequence of filters able to define a process logic using flow control constructs. Those filters can be expanded, then defining an inner layer in the Aqueducts hierarchy.
