Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you’re a programmer who’s only now encountering XML, you do have one advantage: The pioneers have already taken the arrows for you. It’s easier to assess when XML makes sense. There are now best practices for using it. And there’s now a very well thought out beginner’s guide to using it when it does make sense.

Beginning XML, Third Edition teaches XML’s foundational concepts while introducing contemporary techniques for processing, communication, database integration, display, and programming. Along the way, the authors illuminate a wide range of technologies, from SAX to RSS, WSDL to SVG.

To help you apply all that, they wrap up with two start-to-finish case studies. In one, you’ll use PHP to work with XML documents; in the second, you’ll construct a complete XML-based web service with Microsoft’s .NET. Not bad for a “beginner”! Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2003 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.

From the Publisher
"…a comprehensive text for anyone who is serious about learning XML…" (International Developer, June 2005)
