|Abstract:||XML communications and protocols are being built' into a number of proposed standards that are rapidly gaining acceptance in the development community. XML being platform independent and ASCII based is now the default standards for information interchange. The systems that are used in the nuclear installations like reactors, accelerators or other nuclear experimental setups still have to identify an XML standard for the data exchange between the large numbers of networked systems. There are a large number of nuclear instruments supplied by different manufactures that are increasingly getting connected to the network. There is a need to control and monitor these instruments across the network and to provide for information exchange among these systems. The aim of this dissertation is to come forward with an XML vocabulary, which will be used for the control, monitoring, data acquisition and communication with the nuclear instruments. This XML vocabulary is termed as Nuclear Instrument Markup Language, (NIML). The application of NIML in practical scenarios is demonstrated. A software architecture driven by this structured representation of the instruments is created and a prototype is implemented successfully for the Multi Channel Analyzer system being used at Electronics Division, BARC. In this dissertation, the software system has been written in JAVA2 language. The coding has been done in the JBuilder4 IDE. The software system has been tested on Pentium4 machine running on Windows 2000 operating system.|
