This nuts-and-bolts guide shows you the power of XML by presenting an enterprise application problem that you'll design a program to solve throughout the book. Each chapter takes one part of the featured project and leads you through the design of its solution. The team of experienced authors gradually walks you through sections of increasing depth, each one developing a more advanced treatment of XML than the previous.
You'll learn various resolutions to common business and technology needs that are best solved using XML. Plus, you'll get under the hood of everyday applications and web services and discover how to tackle XML markup. By the end of the book, you will understand how to leverage XML applications in order to build a complete, functional, end-to-end XML solution.
