From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
After they created the influential XML4J Parser way back in ’97, this leading-edge IBM development team wrote the first edition of XML and Java -- one of the first books to discuss writing programs using XML-based data formats. We’ve come a long way since then, and XML and Java, Second Edition documents that progress exceptionally well.
Like the first edition, it focuses on using XML, Java, and the constellation of technologies surrounding them to solve real business problems. Since both XML and Java have matured, the authors now have an entire industry to draw upon, so they go far beyond the IBM-oriented focus of the first edition. We now have XSLT, XML Schema, and new J2EE APIs for manipulating XML -- not to mention the whole new Web Services paradigm. This book integrates all these advances.
You’ll start with the proven techniques that underlie all XML development, including parsing, generation, serialization, schemas, namespaces, and converting parse results into application-specific data structures. In Part II, you focus on newer technologies, including the construction of servlet/JSP XML applications; working with SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI; data binding, XML security, and even the latest XML grammars. The result: a book that’s even more useful than its predecessor. (Bill Camarda)
