Overview

The seamless integration of source code and data from many different programming languages and platforms to build large, reliable software systems has been the Holy Grail of computing since the early 1970s. Now, with the marriage of the Java programming language and XML—the worldwide standard for representing data—that ideal has been realized. Together, Java and XML make up the backbone of a bold new generation of applications and Web services. As the sixties radicals used to say, “Either you’re part of the problem or part of the solution!” and no programmer worth his or her salt will want to pass up an opportunity to get in on the Java and XML revolution.
