Training XML for Java Developers – 4 days

Class overview :

This four-day course builds skills in Java’s XML processing APIs. The course is intended for students with a working knowledge of XML — and possibly DTDs or XML Schema — who want to build XML applications or components using the Java language. Everything in the course adheres to W3C and Java standards for completely portable code.

Class goals :

– Understand the use of SAX and DOM APIs for XML parsing.
– Understand the need for JAXP as an additional layer to the standard contract between applications and parsers.
– Parse element and attribute content, processing instructions, and other document information using SAX.
– Parse documents using the DOM.
– Modify, create and delete information in an XML document using the DOM.
– Write simple and complex queries into XML document content using XPath.
– Use XSLT for XML-to-XML, XML-to-HTML, or XML-to-text transformations.
– Build standalone and web applications that build on XSLT transformation logic.
– Use JAXB to generate persistent Java object models based on XML Schema.
– Implement XML persistence using the JAXB.
