Integrating wireless sensor networks in heterogeneous net- works is a complex task. A reason is the absence of a stan- dardized data exchange format that is supported in all par- ticipating sub networks. XML has evolved to the de facto standard data exchange format between heterogeneous net- works and systems. However, XML usage within sensor networks has not been introduced because of the limited hardware resources. In this paper, we introduce XML tem- plate objects making XML usage applicable within sensor networks. This new XML data binding technique provides significant high compression results while still allowing dy- namic XML processing and XML navigation. This is a step towards more complex but exchangeable data management in sensor networks and the extension of the service-oriented paradigm to sensor network application engineering.
