- In a very short time, XML has been recognised as key to the provision of flexible solutions in a complex and fast-moving world. The course also looks at how to use XML for general application integration.
- Examples show how to exchange XML data using a variety of protocols, including CORBA, SOAP and message-based systems such as MQ Series and MSMQ.
- Commercial products are also discussed as well as in-built XML support from relational databases.
- The course comprises lectures, demonstrations, and mini hands-on exercises.
- The demonstrations and exercises illustrate the capabilities and scope of XML, rather than drilling down into the technical details.
- All code samples are available for delegates to take away and study after the course.
- Learn to create well-formed XML documents
- Learn to create basic DTDs
- Learn to create basic XML schemas
- Learn to create basic XSLTs to transform XML documents for output as text, HTML and other XML structures
- Delegates must have some experience in application development or design. Familiarity with HTML is beneficial but not essential. An appreciation of Web-based or multi-tier systems would be advantageous.
After completing this course, delegates will be able to:
- Describe the syntax and structure of XML documents
- Start making decisions about how XML data can be used in their systems
- Appreciate the role of XML in web-based systems
- Understand how XML can be used to integrate systems
- Developers, designers, and system architects that need to understand XML terminology, applicability and capabilities.
