.NET & XML
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: November 2003
Pages: 476

If you're seeking ways to build network-based applications or XML-based web services, Microsoft provides most of the tools you'll need. XML is integrated into the .NET Framework and Visual Studio .NET, but if you want to get a grasp on how .NET and XML actually work together, that's a different story. With .NET & XML, you can get under the hood to see how the .NET Framework implements XML, giving you the skills to write understandable XML-based code that interoperates with code written with other tools, and even other languages.

.NET & XML starts by introducing XML and the .NET Framework, and then teaches you how to read and write XML before moving on to complex methods for manipulating, navigating, transforming, and constraining it. To demonstrate the power of XML in .NET, author Niel Bornstein builds a simple hardware store inventory system throughout the book. As you move from chapter to chapter, you'll absorb increasingly complex information until you have enough knowledge to successfully program your own XML-based applications. This tutorial also contains a quick reference to the API, plus appendices present additional .NET assemblies that you can use to work with XML, and how to work with the .NET XML configuration file format.

One study puts the potential market for new software based on XML at or near $100 billion over the next five years. The .NET Framework gives you a way to become a part of it. But to use XML and .NET effectively, you need to understand how these two technologies work together. This book gives you the insight to take full advantage of the power the two provide.

In the future it will be XML for all the places...

Comments about oreilly .NET & XML:

For my experience as desenvolvedor, I believe that xml will be the basic foundation for web.

Who still does not know this language must have in mind all the concepts.

I advise this book for who intends to learn this! It looks for to see in this book the details of XSL, DTDs and the Schemas.. I liked it book!

OK but not conceptual enough

Comments about oreilly .NET & XML:

I have been waiting for a book like this for a quite a while, and it is certainly a valuable reference. However, although the author is obviously very proficient in the technologies discussed, his approach seems to focus too much on implementation details and not enough on concepts and 'the big picture' for my taste - it is clearly the work of an engineer, not an educator or author.
