Product Description

Review

"I think this book is very well put together and succeeds in making what could be a very tedious subject relatively interesting. I am sure that anyone starting to work with XSLT will find it most helpful but you will need to get Xalan going as well as downloads the examples." - John Collins, news@UK, March

From the Publisher

Learning XSLT moves smoothly from the simple to complex, illustrating all aspects of XSLT 1.0 through step-by-step examples that you'll practice as you work through the book. Thorough in its coverage of the language, the book makes few assumptions about what you may already know. You'll learn about XSLT's template-based syntax, how XSLT templates work with each other, and gain an understanding of XSLT variables. Learning XSLT also explains how the XML Path Language (XPath) is used by XSLT and provides a glimpse of what the future holds for XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0.

I'm not a huge fan of O'Reilly books - I purchased this because it looked like the best of a bad bunch. To be fair, however, it is actually very good. The author explains things well enough and covers as much as one would need to know to reach an intermediate level with XSLT. It also provides information on versions other than 1.0 and the variety of XML/XSL processors out there.
Although this book provides a guide of sorts for XML, it does get complex at times and it's easy to become lost in a sea of jargon - so I would advise that if you haven't already got some experience or knowledge of XML, then you should get a good book on the subject (John Shelley's How to use XML is excellent).
The only fault I could attribute to this book is that the subject of namespaces, while present, is not covered in any great depth - but it's still a fine piece of work that I would recommend to anybody intending to be doing what it says on the cover.

My first O'Reilly book that I didn't enjoy - wished I didn't buy. I just found it very hard to get into this one. It reminded me of a teacher that we had at University - teaching C++ .. and noone could understand. You could say it was because the subject was difficult. But no, I later found out it was the teacher himself who by being too intelligent (author of papers and books) - lacked the earthly skills of conveying something complex efficiently into a more digestible format. Bad bad book. I know XSLT to a medium-level .. but even as a fresher this one is cumbersome, and wrong. I feel like rewriting it myself - show how with much time & effort - it could be done better. Will try XML in a Nutshell next.

This was required reading on my course last year. It's a fairly good introduction if you already have some familliarity with XML. Strangely in the first few chapters some simple concepts are presented in a quite confusing way. More complex examples later in the book are much easier to get to grips with. As the previous reviewer noted the examination of namespaces is superficial, unfortunate as this is an extremely important area. However, while not comprehensive enough to be a working reference it is a good beginning.

I needed to learn XSLT to support an existing system and this book was ideal. It covered what I needed to know in a quick and accurate fashion and let me get on with my day job (which unfortunately is not based around spending all day reading technical books). It may not covering some of the more arcane aspects of XSLT but covers everything you need to write XSLT that will be sufficient for many tasks.

since xslt 1.0 is still quite common then it's pretty relevant, covers a lot but it's pretty dull, but then how much can you say about xslt before it gets kind of dull, it's practical I guess.
