Generic code book compression for XML based application programming interfaces
A synthetic code book document type definition (DTD) is generated that identifies selected compression codes, based on specifying code-book extensible markup language (XML) tags having semantics defined according to a generic code book document type definition (DTD). The compression codes are used to compress API commands, defined by second XML tags having semantics defined by a generic API DTD, into synthesized data. The synthesized data and the code-book XML tags are supplied to a destination device configured for storing the generic code book DTD and the generic API DTD, enabling the destination device to synthesize a code book for recovery of the API commands from the synthesized data.
