This course is designed for Java and web developers who are already familiar with XML and are looking to further their web application development skills with Java and XML. The course covers how Java can be used to validate, parse, transform and create XML documents.
The developer should be familiar with the Windows host environment. Knowledge of the Java programming language is required, as Java is used to validate and manipulate XML documents. This can be gained by attending course EC21 and EC22. A knowledge of XML is also required. This can be gained by attending course EC51.
Whilst covering the basics of Java and XML, and how it is used, this course also aims to give an insight into the different standards and formats for validating, transforming and creating XML documents.
On completion of this course the student will be able to:
XML development will be performed using a text editor:
A web browser such as:
A Java IDE such as:
For on-site courses (i.e. at your premises), we are more than happy to tailor the course agenda to suit your exact requirements. In many cases, we are able to build your in-house standards and naming conventions into the delivered course.
Practical sessions make up a large part of the course, allowing delegates to demonstrate and reinforce the lectures given. During these sessions the delegate will gain experience of coding both SAX and DOM parsers to validate and parse XML documents.
Examples are used extensively, ranging from simple code snippets to full applications with complete ‘real world’ functionality. These are supplied at the start of the course and it is encouraged that the delegates execute and ‘experiment’ with these under the instructor’s guidance as they are introduced.
These examples are available to take away, along with the delegate’s own work.
The comprehensive Student Guide supplied is fully indexed serving as a useful reference tool long after the course has finished. Delegates will also be able to access a free help-line with technical questions relating to topics covered on the course.
