This course provides the foundations for working with XML in Java. XML is an important data format, and although tools try to hide the underlying syntax, eventually you must parse and manipulate it. This course shows how to parse, generate, manipulate, and transform XML using Java. It covers the major World Wide Web Consortium (w3c) interfaces and their implementations in Java, including SAX and DOM. It covers multiple releases of these important API’s. Using SAX and DOM, the course covers event driven and in-memory parsing of XML documents. It also shows how to build DOM trees in memory and persist them as valid XML documents. It also shows the DOM alternative JDOM and how that approaches differs from the standard.

This course also covers important manipulation techniques for XML. It shows how to use XSL and XSLT to drive transformations and how to automate this process using publishing frameworks. It also shows how to use XML as a remote procedure call data format (using XML-RPC) and an introduction to building web services using Java.

Prerequisites:

The student should have experience with core Java language concepts such as fundamental types, classes, abstract classes, interfaces, files, and streams. A working knowledge of XML is preferred but not required.
