Product Description

Amazon Review

XML--it's the hip acronym of the moment as the Net community moves on from HTML and onto something which provides greater flexibility and gives the document designer more control.

Increasingly it seems, XML is also opening doors to enhanced data storage and data transfer.

In typical Wrox style, XML Applications is packed with code examples and is written with a structure with proves a major aid to the earning process.

Starting with the roots of XML design by explaining the basics of the DTD, the book moves swiftly on to examine a massive range of subjects including the difference between well-formed and valid documents, using XML documents as data storage receptacles, client and server-side XML and how to use XML with Cascading Style Sheets.

Although heavily slanted towards a Microsoft-based platform, the information contained within the cover so this book could prove invaluable to the Web programmer/developer looking to extend their knowledge to encompass the Net's "Next Big Thing".

There wasn't one solid case-study or example application which demonstrated how to actually manipulate an XML Structure. Many of the screenshots are fakes. There are far too many forward references. This book was written using Cut & Paste. Almost exclusively Microsoft based -- do Micrsoft own this publishing company?

This book is well balanced in its discussion of history, XML, XSL, XLink, displaying XML, and case studies. The historical introduction is well done, and doesn't drag on and on. The discussion of XML is written in english, building with simple examples to more complex. The case studies were all using Microsoft products, but concrete examples really illustrated key XML concepts. Although the discussion of XSL is probably one of the most up-to-date I've seen, caution on the examples. The XSL formatting discusion tries to go into detail, but can be difficult to follow.
One of the best XML books I've seen.

XML Applications has everything that I want to learn about XML, XSL, DTDs, etc. But the presentation of material is very poorly organized. It reads like a book from 9 different authors that don't know each other. XML and its related technologies cleanly breaks down into 5 major topics, but this book scatters text about each of these 5 topics all over the book. Again, the content and detail is excellent, but the presentation is poor.
