Ramp up your enterprise VB.NET applications with XML!
Microsoft envisions a future where the Web will host millions ofdistributed applications all communicating via XML. Data packagedin XML will flow to and from databases, between applications, anddirectly to the browser.
With the release of Visual Basic .NET, XML support is tightlyintegrated into the language and provides numerous methods formanipulating XML data. This tight integration means that VBprogrammers can load, manipulate, and save XML data faster and moreeasily than ever before. With real-world and fully functionalexamples, Rod Stephens and Brian Hochgurtel walk you step-by-stepthrough how to take advantage of XML in all aspects of enterpriseVB.NET development:
Part One explains XML basics-DOM, SAX, Schemas, Serialization-andhow to read and write XML files using Visual Basic code
Part Two examines methods for displaying XML data on the Web andfor building Web Services using Visual Basic, ASP.Net, Web Forms,and XSL
Part Three shows how XML works with other products and how youcan use SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft's Internet Information Server(IIS) to display data directly on the Web with XML
Final chapters show how to use Visual Basic for Applications(VBA) to save and load XML documents in Microsoft Officeapplications such as Word, Excel, Access, and Outlook
