XML Programming Using C# and .NET
Rev. 2.0
XML Training Overview

This comprehensive and practical four-day course builds skills in .NET’s XML processing APIs—chiefly parsing using XmlReader and the Document Object Model (DOM), writing XML streams using XmlWriter, and transformations using XPath and XSLT, all using the .NET Framework XML classes and the C# language. It also covers XML serialization according to XML Schema and the tight coupling between XML and ADO.NET. The course is intended for students with a working knowledge of XML—and possibly DTDs or XML Schema—who want to build XML applications or components using .NET and the C# language. Everything in the course adheres to W3C and .NET standards for highly portable code. The course includes a practical discussion of performance tradeoffs using various XML technology alternatives.

The course includes extensive programming examples, a case study, and several tools for manipulating XML documents. All source code is in C# and is provided with the course.

Upon completion of this course the student will easily program XML application in .NET and understand which XML and .NET technologies to apply for the problem domain.


XML Training LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the purpose of the .NET Framework XML classes.
  • Parse XML data streams using XMLReader classes
  • Validate XML data streams that are described by a DTD or an XML Schema
  • Use the XMLTextWriter class to create XML data streams.
  • Modify, create and delete information in an XML document using the Document Object Model (DOM) .NET classes.
  • Use XML Schema to express precise type information for an XML document and the .NET Schema Object Model classes to read and write schema information.
  • Use XML Serialization to persist XML data.
  • Acquire a working knowledge of the tight coupling of XML with ADO.NET
  • Use XPath to query for content in an XML document and the .NET XPathNavigator class to parse XML documents.
  • Use XSLT to transform XML documents into text, HTML or other XML.
  • Evaluate performance tradeoffs in alternative XML technologies.
XML Training Prerequisites

Ability to read and to write well-formed XML. Ability to read a DTD not strictly required, but preferred. A working knowledge of programming the .NET Framework using C#. A working knowledge of ADO.NET is recommended for the portion of the course dealing with ADO.NET and XML
