Overview

This course is an intensive, hands-on treatment of XML, XPath, and XSLT.  The course is a balanced mixture of theory and practical labs designed to take students from a quick review of the basic fundamentals of XML through to the related advanced technologies.  The students walk through the different standards in a structured manner to enable them to master the concepts and ideas, which are reinforced in the lab exercises.  The course starts with a quick review of the fundamentals of XML before covering XML Schema in detail.  It then moves on to the XPath and XSLT covering advanced topics in both.  Finally, XML and Web Services security mechanisms and issues are addressed.
