AbstractThis paper discusses about benefits derived from providing XML support to the component based framework for audio systems that we are developing. XML is used as data format for persistency, visualization and inter-application interface. Direct XML support is a very useful feature for an audio framework because of the popularity of the XML format as data interchange format, and the introduction of MPEG7 standard, an XML based description format for multimedia content. Formatting task has been distributed along the system objects in a compositional way, making easy to format a single object from its parts. The system minimizes the overhead added to a class and the programmer e ort to support XML I/O. A default XML implementation has been provided for most of the future data structures, giving the chance to customize it. The system has been designed to be reused with other formats with a minimal impact on the system.
