CodeNotes for XML is a practical handbook for Java and Visual Basic developers interested in working with XML. You will learn how to leverage both CSS and XSLT to produce rich, compelling output, as well as manipulate XML using the DOM and SAX APIs. The new XML Schema specification is also covered in-depth. Companion articles on www.codenotes.com cover XML development with Perl, integrating XML with databases, important grammars such as XHTML and SOAP, and much more. CodeNotes for XML is your guide to these powerful technologies, presented within the context of the distributed application, database, or web-based world you already know.
This edition of CodeNotes includes:
-A global overview of a technology and explanation of what problems it can be used to solve
-"How and Why" and "Bugs and Caveats" sections that provide hints, tricks, workarounds, and tips on what should be taken advantage of or avoided
-Instructions and classroom-style tutorials throughout from expert trainers and software developers.

This new series was designed for the software developer who -- whether to prepare for an interview or a new project -- needs to come up to speed quickly on a new language or technology. CodeNotes presents the most succinct, accurate, and speedy way to ramp up. Most programming books give equal weight to all areas of a given technology. CodeNotes, by contrast, drills down to the core aspects, focusing on the key elements needed to quickly understand -- and immediately implement -- a technology. CodeNotes was conceived and written by a team of seasoned, published software developers. The series offers a fresh approach, providing easy-to-follow labs that use real-life case studies, exercises, and "skeleton code" to help demonstrate the key concepts. It is also the first series to offer, at its launch, a distinct and highly effective electronic component, which includes an e-book edition and access to a Web-based developer community where CodeNotes readers can communicate with both the authors and other developers and take free on-line tests to gauge their understanding. This Codenotes edition will introduce and demonstrate how XML/XSLT can be used to transfer and translate data in the Enterprise. Coverage will also include advanced uses of XML, such as the SOAP protocol, and how relational databases such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server are taking advantage of these new standards.
