Java & XML 1ST Editionby Brett Mclaughlin
Synopses & Reviews
XML has been the biggest buzzword on the Internet community for the past year. But how do you cut through all the hype and actually put it to work? Java revolutionized the programming world by providing a platform-independent programming language. XML takes the revolution a step further with a platform-independent language for interchanging data. Java and XML share many features that are ideal for building web-based enterprise applications, such as platform-independence, extensibility, reusability, and global language (Unicode) support, and both are based on industry standards. Together Java and XML allow enterprises to simplify and lower costs of information sharing and data exchange. Java and XML shows how to put the two together, building real-world applications in which both the code and the data are truly portable.This book covers:
Book News Annotation:
A guide for Java programmers, showing how to build real-world applications with XML featuring portable code and data. Early chapters focus on getting grounded in XML and core Java APIs for handling XML, and include coverage of the latest API, JDOM 1.0. Later chapters focus on specific XML topics such as Web publishing frameworks, XML for configurations, and XML schema. Includes a case study of creating inter- and intra-business communication channels using XML as a portable data format. The author specializes in building application infrastructure using Java.
