Very well written and well thought out
Anyone who has spent even a little time with .NET knows that XML is at the core of many of the libraries. When performing a query with ADO.NET, it¿s as easy to return the results as a DataSet as it is to return it as XML. This book realizes the core use of XML to .NET and discusses many of the various options developers have in handling XML. The book covers a few main points: how to read XML, how to write XML, how to transform XML (via XSLT), and various data manipulations. Each of these points, in turn, opens up various different issues which are discussed at length (like constraining XML via an XSD or how to read a non-XML document into XML). Much of the discussion contained some of the best instruction related to XML and .NET that I have seen. The final section of the book contains various reference chapters related to the XML namespaces (think of the reference section in the Nutshell series and you¿ll have a pretty good idea of what to expect). All in all, this is a very well written and well thought out discussion on the uses of XML in .NET. Not only will this book further your understanding of how to use .NET and XML together, but it will also help you gain insight into perhaps new uses for XML in your applications. I would recommend looking through this book before you begin your next .NET application.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
