First Sentence
Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a meta-markup language, meaning that the language, as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) XML 1.0 specification, enables users to define their own markup languages to describe and encapsulate data into XML files. Read the first page

a must-have book for XML developers 5 Oct 2004
By Fei Song - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book covers everything on how to develop XML applications based on the Oracle XML infrastructure. It also provides the readers with a lot of samples on how to utilize the technology. No matter you are an advanced professional or a fresh graduate, if you are interested in XML-related Oracle application development, personally I think this is a must-have book.

Does not start the job well 15 Nov 2004
By Moulik Kothari - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book does not do a good job of getting the small experiments running. And w/o that, it is difficult to get any handle over the big picture. If you haven't done XML and Oracle integration before, this book definitely is not what you are looking for.
Sloppy editing 17 May 2010
By J. P. Keller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Got the book a few days ago. I've been going through the examples. You can download all the source code from the Oracle Press web site, which is nice. But the examples in the book aren't given names or numbers, and the web site (although it does at least separate them by chapter) uses a cryptic and unexplained naming convention, so finding the code you want is confusing.

And it gets worse. The very first example in the book (and the downloaded code) won't compile; it calls a method that doesn't exist. I was able to work-around it. The second example wouldn't compile either; it has a typo. The fixes are easy enough so far, but it's frustrating. I guess they didn't have enough time to actually edit the book. Hopefully the online code will eventually be fixed. Disappointing so far. :(

doesn't cover Oracle 10.2 19 July 2012
By N.E.Review - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is titled "Oralce 10g" so that should include 10.2 enhancements - yes?

I bought this book to get more info about XMLTable and XMLQuery functions, which came out in Oracle 10.2, but there is nothing. It covers Oracle 10.1 methods (XMLSequence) but nothing later. The editors should either update the book or change the title to make it clear it covers Oracle 10.1 only. I wouldn't have bought it if I had known... wasted time and money.
