    Why do we organize this seminar ?

    XML and Java are a good match: Java was conceived to write platform-independent and architecture-neutral applications, while XML was designed to model and process cross-platform data. The combination of Java and XML provides an all-purpose tool set for modern IT architects. By now, XML has delivered on its promise of being the worthy successor for the plain old-times ASCII format: today's configuration and exchange files all hold the recognizable <angle-brackets/>. Both languages are thoroughly internationalized and have been designed to work in a platform independent and distributed environment.

    All participants get the book "Processing XML with Java: A Guide to SAX, DOM, JDOM, JAXP, and TrAX" by Elliotte Rusty Harold:
    Imperfect XML

    This seminar shows how easy it is to have your own Java code work with XML (read, write, store and transform). The W3C is still releasing new Recommendations in the XML space as we speak and the Java Community wraps those features in clear cut API's that offer easy programmer access to the rich feature set of the XML family of specifications (XML, XSLT, Xpath, Xpointer, Xlink, ...). Don't panic if this overwhelms you: we will give a brief introduction to all these XML specifications, so that you understand how they are mapped into the Java API's.

    Taking the step into real-life XML application building, we go beyond the simple XML data handling and right into doing something useful with XML. We will cover how to avoid the typical pitfalls people often see regarding encoding issues and memory consumption. We will also discuss the newer developments like JAXB and STaX to come to real Java implementations of XML-based protocols and solutions:

    This seminar will not only give a status-overview of the API's, and explain how you set them to work in your applications to build, interpret and transform your own XML streams, it will also try to comment on why and when you should decide on (not) using them in your XML&Java-based architectures.

    Finally, we show where and how the different aspects of modern applications should use XML and benefit from the existing Java API's and implementations. To assist you in deciding what combination of Java and XML technology you should use, we will discuss in detail the strengths and weaknesses of Java/XML technologies in respect to what they offer. We will also explain the impact of the use of Java/XML technologies on tools, training, project & people management, ...

    What will you learn during this seminar ?

    Who should attend this seminar ?

    This seminar is targeted towards solution architects, software developers and project managers who want to know how they can use the XML tools and technologies available on the Java platform to build innovative applications (both classical and Web-based).

    This seminar is particularly useful for:

    Note: The seminar assumes that you are already familiar with the basic concepts and syntax of XML, XSL and related standards. These will be discussed briefly where necessary, but will not be explained in detail. The most important Java patterns that are frequently used inside these API's will be explained.
