The XML Toolbox for Matlab allows engineering users of Matlab to convert and store variables and structures from the internal Matlab format into human-readable XML format and vice versa. This format is required to be able to store parameter structures, variables and results from engineering applications in XML-capable databases and can be used for the transfer of data across the Grid.

The XML Toolbox is implemented as four small intuitive and easy-to-use Matlab function which can be called directly within the proprietary environment.

As an additional feature, this Toolbox allows the comparison of internal Matlab structures through comparing their XML representation, which has not been possible so far.

This work originally began as a collaboration between Geodise and the DTI-funded GEM project at the Southampton Regional e-Science Centre. Current development has been funded as part of the OMII managed programme
