Java XML Programming (3 days) print Download

course overview

Java and XML are two of the most successful technologies of the last decade. The fact that they naturally co-exist in software applications is no coincidence. The combination of the simplicity and flexibility of XML and the functionality of Java makes them a perfect team. Recently, XML has been used in data messaging underpinning distributed applications.

This course provides thorough coverage of how to manipulate and create XML content by using Java APIs.
