"Pro XML Development with Java Technology has been written to help you, the professional Java developer who needs a practical hands-on guide to marrying these technologies together effectively. There are a lot of books out there, but none really explore the combination deeply, and they are largely theoretical. The main objective here was to consolidate the theory and practice of XML and Java technologies in a single, up-to-date source, that is firmly grounded in underlying XML concepts, and can be consulted time and again to rapidly speed up enterprise application development!
It covers all the essential XML topics, including XML Schemas, addressing of XML documents through XPath, transformation of XML documents using XSLT stylesheets, storage and retrieval of XML content in native XML and relational databases, web applications based on Ajax, and SOAP/HTTP and WSDL based Web Services. These XML topics are covered in he applied context of up-to-date Java technologies, including JAXP, JAXB, XMLBeans, and JAX-WS. You will find this book useful in building contemporary, service-oriented enterprise applications."
