XML and Java Workshop

     The explosive growth of the World Wide Web is redefining the existing paradigms of conducting business, communicating, and exchanging information. With the growth of the Web has come the obvious realization that HTML, the principle language of the Web, has reached the limits of its potential. While HTML is a good choice for marking up information for display purposes, we want to do more with the vast amount of information that is available. XML (Extensible Markup Language) is the technology of the future, capable of augmenting HTML with an ability to describe, capture, publish and process information content. This class will combine lecture with hands-on programming to facilitate your understanding of XML and its potential uses. This course will explain in detail the XML standard, will show many practical examples of using XML including XSL and XLL, and will give an overview of E-commerce applications of XML.
