The Web Services model requires developers to approach enterprise and Internet application development in a radically different way. Developers are scrambling to make sense of XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI and the other technologies that make up this new paradigm.

Professional XML is aimed toward seasoned Web or general application developers as a guide for developing sophisticated, real-world XML solutions. It successfully meets the most pressing need for programmers new to XML by putting all of the various component technologies into clear context. / The near boundless potential of XML also means there is much ground to cover, and this book cuts no corners in taking the reader through the network of technologies, exploring both the presentation and data exchange applications of XML. This second edition represents the current state of the ever-evolving set of XML standards, particularly the momentum toward XML Schemas.

XML is now an established technology for the description and transportation of data, and has made a major impact on almost every aspect of software development. When Microsoft introduced the .NET Framework, they took advantage of XML wherever they could. No other technology is so tightly bound with .NET as XML, both at the developer level and underlying the whole framework. / This book aims to give the reader enough information to be able to use XML from within the .NET Framework in the most efficient manner possible. It will explain in detail the usage of all the XML-related .NET Framework library classes for the manipulation, validation, transformation, and serialization of XML data, using both C# and Visual Basic .NET. It also looks at how the developer can utilize the full power of XML within the .NET Framework, for example, with the new XML capabilities of ADO.NET and ASP.NET. As is demonstrated, the .NET Framework itself uses XML, in configuration files, meta data, and C#'s XML code documentation mechanism, for example.

Suitable for virtually any XML designer or developer, Professional XML Schemas provides a challenging, in-depth guide to state-of-the-art XML Schema tools and techniques. This title will likely be a virtual must-have for anyone working with XML for databases or document management. / The range of topics presented here helps make this title a success. While there is some leading-edge (and somewhat obscure) material on emerging topics in XML Schemas, much of the book avoids XML "language lawyering" and concentrates on delivering a solid tour of the basics. The authors walk before they run, taking the reader along with basic XML Schema constructs to define simple data types in XML. They show off elements, attributes, and simple data types. (There's coverage of the full complement of over two dozen built-in XML Schema data types for numerical, string, date, and IDREFs.) The earlier sections include the author's own sample classes for a handful of common data types for such common entities as people's names, countries, IP addresses and URIs, plus geographical locations. Fully internationalized, these samples can serve as a basis for entities in your custom projects.

The emergence of XML is having an enormous impact on Web development, and scaling the learning curve of this new technology is a priority for many developers. The XML Bible offers a superb introduction to the subject and the groundwork to understand XML's future developments. / Author Elliotte Rusty Harold uses a patient, step-by-step discussion that clearly points out the potential of XML without boring his readership with tons of SGML spec-speak. Harold opens quickly with a "Hello World" example to get the reader coding early, and follows that with a simple but powerful example of XML's data management benefits--presenting baseball statistics. Once you've coded your first XML documents, you'll be hooked on the technology and motivated to learn about the more sophisticated topics.

In the crowd of XML books, this book stands out, with its specific focus on the needs of Web-page authors. Elliotte Harold handles the technical details and programming aspects as briefly as possible in order to concentrate on the pragmatic issues of producing efficient Web sites. / Harold divides the 11 chapters of the book into three parts. The first part covers the basics of XML, providing enough information to start creating XML Web pages. This section includes information on the philosophy behind XML, how XML uses extensibility in place of a multitude of tags, how to render XML documents into HTML, how to get pages onto the Web, and how to use Extensible Style Language (XSL) style sheets. / The second part discusses more advanced issues, such as document type definitions, how to assemble documents from a variety of sources, how to use attributes to describe elements, and how to use Xlinks and Xpointers to provide greater functionality than HTML's hyperlinks and anchors. Each chapter builds upon the preceding ones so by the time you get to part 3, "Practical XML," you're able to follow right along as Harold demonstrates XML in action. In this section, Harold uses XML to build a push technology site and then a genealogy site, element by element. An enclosed CD-ROM contains the source code for all the book's examples. --Elizabeth
