Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's been great anticipation surrounding the release of XSLT 2.0, the new language specification that's critical for converting XML documents into other formats, such as HTML code or a PDF file. The XSLT 2.0 specification is approaching completion at long last, but unfortunately, version 2.0's delays and complexity have forced developers to rely on the XSLT 1.0 standard longer than they anticipated. Both specifications will be in use during what is likely to be a long transition period.

The second edition of XSLT incorporates new material for XSLT 2.0 and expounds on the lessons learned over the last six years of XSLT 1.0 use. Whether you're looking for the latest and greatest in XSLT 1.0 techniques, or is moving on to XSLT 2.0, this new edition of XSLT will address your needs. The book includes plenty of practical, real-world examples to show you how to apply XSLT stylesheets to XML data using either version.

You'll get a thorough understanding of XSLT and XPath and their relationship to other web standards, along with recommendations for a honed toolkit in an open platform-neutral, standards-based environment. Author Doug Tidwell starts with the basics: simple stylesheets and methods for setting up transformation engines. Then he works through examples that develop your understanding of the many parts of XSLT, particularly XSLT's template-based approach to transformations. This new edition has been updated to explain XSLT 2.0's many dependencies, notably XML Schema and XPath 2.0.

Book News Annotation:

This book teaches readers how to be productive using XSLT in a platform-neutral, standards-based environment, and serves as a dictionary-style reference to all the features and functions of the language that are commonly used on the job. Coverage encompasses XSLT 1.0 and 2.0, along with versions 1.0 and 2.0 of XPath, the XML Path language. The first section of the book explains how stylesheets work and explains the features of XSLT by solving common problems using the language. The second section of the book contains a complete set of examples for all of the XSLT elements, functions, and operators defined by XSLT and XPath, useful for writing stylesheets. A glossary is also included. Tidwell is an XML trainer. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
