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.

Skills Gained

Throughout the course students will be led through a series of progressively advanced topics, where each topic consists of lecture, group discussion, comprehensive hands-on lab exercises, and lab review. This class is “technology-centric”, designed to train attendees in essential XML development skills coupling the most current, effective techniques with the soundest coding practices. Working in a hands-on learning environment student will learn to:
•Design and implement changes to XML Schemas
•Apply advanced XSLT constructs such as calling named templates with parameters
•Use XSLT constructs such as messages, keys, and copy
•Generate linked, dynamic table of contents using XSLT
•Use XML Digital Signature and XML Encryption
•Defend XML-based services and functions from malicious attacks

Who Can Benefit
