XML Configuration Rule Inference

Rule inference from J2EE XML config. files

Finding out how to write XML configuration files is often hard. For example, J2EE applications typically require long and detailed configuration specification files. In order to write these files, the user either has to start from an existing skeleton (e.g. tutorial, example, etc..) or read the official documentation. In both cases, long time is required to complete the task.

We want to investigate whether this task can be simplified by harvesting the information coming from existing configuration files present in open source applications. In particular, we are interested in discovering usage statistics and correlation among schema elements.
