Product description

From the Back Cover

"Dan's book provides something that the formal standards and development manuals sorely lack: a context that helps developers understand how to use XML in their own projects."
--Tim Kientzle, Independent Software Consultant

XML and SQL: Developing Web Applications is a guide for Web developers and database programmers interested in building robust XML applications backed by SQL databases. It makes it easier than ever for Web developers to create and manage scalable database applications optimized for the Internet.

The author offers an understanding of the many advantages of both XML and SQL and provides practical information and techniques for utilizing the best of both systems. The book explores the stages of application development step by step, featuring a real-world perspective and many examples of when and how each technology is most effective.

Specific topics covered include:

  • Project definition for a data-oriented application
  • Creating a bullet-proof data model
  • DTDs (document type definitions) and the design of XML documents
  • When to use XML, and what parts of your data should remain purely relational
  • Related standards, such as XSLT and XML Schema
  • How to use the XML support incorporated into Microsoft's SQL Server™ 2000
  • The XML-specific features of J2EE™ (Java™ 2 Enterprise Edition)

Throughout this book, numerous concrete examples illustrate how to use each of these powerful technologies to circumvent the other's limitations. If you want to use the best part of XML and SQL to create robust, data-centric systems then there is no better resource than this book.
