XML: FastTrack to Application Development
Duration: 5 Days
To be competitive today, it is no longer enough to just have a presence on the Web; you must also take advantage of the most efficient and effective technologies. XML has become an essential tool in an application developer's toolbox, allowing for easy interchange of pure data between disparate systems across the Internet. Integrating these systems involves transforming and styling XML data. XSL is the solution to these integration issues. Scripting languages can be used to automate tasks and even to write COM components.
XML stands poised to revolutionize the Internet, offering an easier way to conduct business-to-business transactions and a better means for searching and managing data.
This course provides extensive experience transforming and styling XML data. You learn how to exploit XSL components to manipulate and analyze XML data. You also learn how to generate HTML, WML, PDF, SVG and various EDI formats.
Because of its cross-platform capabilities and APIs for accessing backend resources, Java is rapidly gaining acceptance for server-side Web development. Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP) allow you to create dynamic data-driven Web applications. In this course, you gain hands-on experience developing XML-based solutions. You also learn how to integrate XML with existing applications.
Students will learn how to use XML to transcend the limitations of HTML and deliver rich, structured data from any application as well as create well-formed and valid XML documents.
