Java & Xml Data Binding

Overview

More Java developers today want to work with XML, the technology that enables data to be transported intact over the Internet, but they don't have time to become XML experts. If this describes you, then you'll appreciate data binding, the new way of converting XML documents into Java objects, so those documents can be worked on and manipulated like any other Java object, then converted back to XML

This new title provides an in-depth technical look at XML Data Binding. The book ...

Overview

More Java developers today want to work with XML, the technology that enables data to be transported intact over the Internet, but they don't have time to become XML experts. If this describes you, then you'll appreciate data binding, the new way of converting XML documents into Java objects, so those documents can be worked on and manipulated like any other Java object, then converted back to XML

This new title provides an in-depth technical look at XML Data Binding. The book offers complete documentation of all features in both the Sun Microsystems JAXB API and popular open source alternative implementations (Enhydra Zeus, Exolabs Castor and Quick). It also gets into significant detail about when data binding is appropriate to use, and provides numerous practical examples of using data binding in applications.

As Author Brett McLaughlin says "Too many books are written about technologies by people who barely understand them. I've already written two data binding implementations (Zeus, and a previous one for IBM DeveloperWorks.) I've actually used data binding for longer than the official specification has been in existence, and I've really been able to dig into what it takes to code an effective data biding implementation, as well as use one correctly. This book is part user guide, part under-the-hood manual, and part use-case. It's a powerful combination, and one I think people need."

This title provides an in-depth technical look at XML Data Binding, offering complete documentation of all features in both the Sun Microsystems API and popular open source alternative implementations.

    avoid!

    <p> Developing Java applications using XML data binding is a new, important and exciting area. Unfortunately, I need to say that this book is completely misleading and confusing due to the poor design and quality of the sample code. </p><p> Sample code for the book is maintained on a special Web site, but it is actually not complete and cannot be used as is. </p><p> All that can be done with JAXB code samples for chapters 3, 4 is compilation. As for running a simple command line example for JAXB unmarshalling, there is simply no way to do this because complete source is not provided. </p><p> JAXB unmarshalling process is demonstrated on code snippets, but there is no need to maintain a source Web site for unexecutable demos! </p><p> Main sample for unmarshalling is supposed to work with Java servlets, but the simple fact that this needs a Web server (for example, Tomcat) which needs to be properly configured is never put explicitly. </p><p> With this in mind, going on with more involved data binding frameworks like Castor does not make any sense. </p><p> Apparently, the author is not aware of specifics of sample code development. Unfortunately, this book does not fit the venerable tradition of Internet tutorial writing. </p>
