XML Programming Hands-On Training Class

This hands on XML programming class is a thorough introduction to using XML in a variety of practical applications using Java, .NET and JavaScript.

The course covers structuring data with XML; validating data with document type definitions (DTDs) and XML Schemas; creating and viewing XML documents; transforming XML documents with the XML Stylesheet Language (XSL, XSLT and XPath); service- oriented architectures using SOAP and Web Services; accessing and editing XML data via the document object model (DOM) and Simple API for XML (SAX) libraries; mapping XML structures to and from databases and object-oriented languages. These techniques are then combined in client or server-based applications to deliver rich AJAX user interfaces with clear and modular code.

Extensive examples in Java, ECMAScript (JavaScript) and .NET environments combined with comprehensive hands-on lab exercises reinforce the concepts being taught and introduce the practical application of XML to business problems.

Course Prerequisites: Programming experience in an object-oriented language such as Java, JavaScript (JScript, ECMAScript) or C# is strongly recommended.
