Java & XML Data Binding
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: May 2002
Pages: 218

More Java developers today want to work with XML, the technology that enables data to be transported intact over the Internet, but they don't have time to become XML experts. If this describes you, then you'll appreciate data binding, the new way of converting XML documents into Java objects, so those documents can be worked on and manipulated like any other Java object, then converted back to XML

This new title provides an in-depth technical look at XML Data Binding. The book offers complete documentation of all features in both the Sun Microsystems JAXB API and popular open source alternative implementations (Enhydra Zeus, Exolabs Castor and Quick). It also gets into significant detail about when data binding is appropriate to use, and provides numerous practical examples of using data binding in applications.

As Author Brett McLaughlin says "Too many books are written about technologies by people who barely understand them. I've already written two data binding implementations (Zeus, and a previous one for IBM DeveloperWorks.) I've actually used data binding for longer than the official specification has been in existence, and I've really been able to dig into what it takes to code an effective data biding implementation, as well as use one correctly. This book is part user guide, part under-the-hood manual, and part use-case. It's a powerful combination, and one I think people need."

another question

Comments about oreilly Java & XML Data Binding:

The new JAXB version do support 'DTD' as it support Schema ,I have another question :when I want to insert a new record into the XML file (movies.xml), must I first UNMARSHAL the file, and add the corresponding object (Movie) to the generated Movies's movie list, then MARSHAL it?

I think it looks not so beatiful when the Movies has a large number of movies!

Java & XML Data Binding Review

By Surendra

Comments about oreilly Java & XML Data Binding:

The book was a really good reading.

BUT, when I started to work on JAXB, it was totally diffrent!

They have dropped the support for DTD and taken Schema support.

Which is just the opposite - what the book says.

SO PLEASE DON'T BUY THIS BOOK NOW !

WAIT TILL THE FIRST SIX CHAPTERS ARE UPDATED TO REFLECT CHANGES IN JAXB.

Java & XML Data Binding Review

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly Java & XML Data Binding:

The book describes the JAXB api based on an early access version. The definitive version is completely different form the early access version, making this book alomst useless.
