The first edition of XML and Java earned rave reviews for its exceptionally practical, thorough, and example-rich coverage of XML development with Java. Now, the authors -- all leading-edge XML experts from IBM -- have updated the book to reflect the latest XML tools, technologies, and best practices. From start to finish, they provide expert insight and "jumpstart" examples that are immediately applicable to real-world problems. Coverage includes: parsing and generating XML documents; working with DOM/DOM2 and SAX/SAX2; schemas and validation; document manipulation with XPath and XSLT; and utilizing advanced XML parsers. The authors introduce XML programming with servlets and JSP; XML database integration; XML messaging and Web services; data binding and security solutions; and more.
