Compete with the big players in today's E-commerce marketplace Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) has long been the standard for large business enterprises to communicate in the B2B marketplace. However, EDI is a difficult technology - the cost and support of EDI standards is often too much for a small or medium business enterprise to bear. To compete in the current E-commerce marketplace, many organizations are beginning to take an interest in the interoperability that exists between XML (Extensible Markup Language) and EDI. XML .NET Developers Guide is written for information technology professionals responsible for supporting data management in both small and large organizations. This book appeals to both individuals working with an existing EDI environment, and small to medium businesses looking to increase their market presence by competing with current EDI players using XML/EDI. XML/EDI is quickly becoming an industry standard, however there is a noticeable lack of quality reference material for programmers looking to adopt these standards. You can take it with you.

This new edition has been updated to explain XSLT 2.0's many dependencies, notably XML Schema and XPath 2.0.
Author: Doug Tidwell
Publisher: "O'Reilly Media, Inc."
There's been great anticipation surrounding the release of XSLT 2.0, the new language specification that's critical for converting XML documents into other formats, such as HTML code or a PDF file. The XSLT 2.0 specification is approaching completion at long last, but unfortunately, version 2.0's delays and complexity have forced developers to rely on the XSLT 1.0 standard longer than they anticipated. Both specifications will be in use during what is likely to be a long transition period. The second edition of XSLT incorporates new material for XSLT 2.0 and expounds on the lessons learned over the last six years of XSLT 1.0 use. Whether you're looking for the latest and greatest in XSLT 1.0 techniques, or is moving on to XSLT 2.0, this new edition of XSLT will address your needs. The book includes plenty of practical, real-world examples to show you how to apply XSLT stylesheets to XML data using either version. You'll get a thorough understanding of XSLT and XPath and their relationship to other web standards, along with recommendations for a honed toolkit in an open platform-neutral, standards-based environment. Author Doug Tidwell starts with the basics: simple stylesheets and methods for setting up transformation engines. Then he works through examples that develop your understanding of the many parts of XSLT, particularly XSLT's template-based approach to transformations. This new edition has been updated to explain XSLT 2.0's many dependencies, notably XML Schema and XPath 2.0.

When students read these texts, they may be left on their own to interpret the code and they may be unable to generalize beyond the specific examples due to an incomplete explanation of the material.
Author: Andrew Whitmore
Many texts that teach eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) assume that their readers are developers who already have a certain level of technical knowledge. As a result, code examples are presented with minimal explanation and the focus of the material tends to target areas that are most appealing to experienced practitioners. When students read these texts, they may be left on their own to interpret the code and they may be unable to generalize beyond the specific examples due to an incomplete explanation of the material. This text is oriented toward students at the undergraduate and graduate levels who seek an introduction to XSLT that makes limited assumptions about technical background and covers a set of topics that are focused on the needs of students. Written by an author with years of experience teaching XML and XSLT to undergraduate and graduate students, this text presents intuitive examples with in-depth explanations coupled with insights and tips that mitigate typical problems that occur when working with XSLT.

Perhaps the most explosive technological trend over the past two years has been blogging. As a matter of fact, it's been reported that the number of blogs during that time has grown from 100,000 to 4.8 million-with no end to this growth in sight.What's the technology that makes blogging tick? The answer is RSS--a format that allows bloggers to offer XML-based feeds of their content. It's also the same technology that's incorporated into the websites of media outlets so they can offer material (headlines, links, articles, etc.) syndicated by other sites.As the main technology behind this rapidly growing field of content syndication, RSS is constantly evolving to keep pace with worldwide demand. That's where Developing Feeds with RSS and Atom steps in. It provides bloggers, web developers, and programmers with a thorough explanation of syndication in general and the most popular technologies used to develop feeds.This book not only highlights all the new features of RSS 2.0-the most recent RSS specification-but also offers complete coverage of its close second in the XML-feed arena, Atom. The book has been exhaustively revised to explain: metadata interpretation the different forms of content syndication the increasing use of web services how to use popular RSS news aggregators on the market After an introduction that examines Internet content syndication in general (its purpose, limitations, and traditions), this step-by-step guide tackles various RSS and Atom vocabularies, as well as techniques for applying syndication to problems beyond news feeds. Most importantly, it gives you a firm handle on how to create your own feeds, and consume or combine other feeds.If you're interested in producing your own content feed, Developing Feeds with RSS and Atom is the one book you'll want in hand.

XSL is a vital companion to XML and is used for two main purposes: to format or style XML data (like Cascading Stylesheets) so that it can be displayed in a browser, and to transform XML data. When you transform and XML document, you manipulate the data into a new structure, for example, re-ordering the data. This enables the same data store to be used in an unlimited number of ways. It is the transformation ability that gives XSL (and therefore XML) its real power. You can imagine XSL as a bridging mechanism between your XML data store and the browser. It does a similar job to ASP, but it is platform independent. XSL can also be used to transform XML into other text formats (eg HTML). Pro XSL demonstrates how to decide which technique to use and how to fit XSL into the development of practical applications. It also shows how to implement the data transformation processes in order to filter, sort or change the structure of data and add style for presentation purposes.
