A nuts-and-bolts guide that focuses exclusively on Sun's Java XML API
An overwhelming amount of information about XML exists in books and magazines, on the Internet, at conferences and seminars, and even in mass mailings that can send the most technologically savvy person whirling. You could find yourself hard-pressed to find a resource that contains a concise breakdown of all that data, filtered and distilled to its bare bones-- until now. Arthur Griffith realizes that other books on the topic are often expansive tutorials that force the reader to wade through all the material before finding the critical information needed. With Java, XML, and JAXP, he provides you with instant access to critical, drill-down information on Sun's Java XML API and the foundation for you to proceed into any region of XML usage and technology and have secure knowledge of the basics.
Geared toward developers and IT professionals with an understanding of the fundamentals of Java, HTML, and URLs, this book is filled with examples that describe and demonstrate API's specific features and capabilities. Griffith uses his vast experience as a systems veteran to explain the two distinct ways of using Sun's Java XML API. He explores one option of placing the XML data in an internal tree-like structure and the alternative of streaming the XML data through a filter. Additionally, Java, XML, and JAXP offers you the following:
A high-level overview of Java software and a concise look at the structure of XML
Explanations of the SAX and DOM parsers
Ways to process XML documents by using XSL stylesheets
How the Ant utility can be used to manage a Java project of any size
The companion Web site includes all of the examples found in the book and links to valuable resources.
