* An XML Primer
What is XML, and how can it be used to deliver structured data over the web?
* What's the point of XML?
What is XML, and why is it so important? Also looks at some of the many current schemes already making use of XML - such as CDF (Channel Definition Format)
* Roll a New Data Format with XML
An article from JavaPro magazine giving an introduction to XML use in Java, including sample application using Microsoft's XML Parser.
* Introduction to XML and XSL - Part 2
Shows how to use JavaScript and the Web Browser's Document Object Model (DOM) to display XML data. Then looks at an equivalent Java applet to display the same data, but with extra functionality such as sorting, searching or collating.
* XML and Java Tutorial, Part I
A tutorial from the Bean Factory showing how Java can be used to display information in XML documents using a graphical Swing interface and an HTML based interface.
* Building an XML application - Step 1: Writing a DTD
The first part of IBM's 3 part tutorial on Building an XML Application.
Abstract: One of the main tasks in creating an XML application is writing a Document Type Definition (DTD). The DTD lets us define the different pieces of data we plan to model, along with the relationships between them. The ability to include this semantic information is the source of XML's power, and its main advantage over HTML. This article builds a DTD as the first step in building the XML application.
* Building an XML application - Step 2: Generating XML from a Data Store
The second part of IBM's 3 part tutorial on Building an XML Application.
Abstract: In this paper, we'll discuss how to generate XML-tagged data from a data store. In our examples here, we'll be using IBM DB2 for Windows NT as our data store. Unlike the previous paper, in which we produced a DTD, in this paper we'll focus on building Java code. Although you could certainly build this application with other languages, we'll use Java here for portability's sake. We'll also discuss all of the parts of our Java code, even though there are tools (most notably IBM VisualAge for Java and IBM WebSphere Studio) that could generate this code for us.
* Building an XML application - Step 3: Converting XML into HTML with the Document Object Model (DOM)
The third part of IBM's 3 part tutorial on Building an XML Application.
Abstract: In this paper, we'll take the XML document we generated in the previous paper and parse it into a DOM tree. Building a DOM tree is typically the first step in processing an XML document. Once the DOM tree is built, we'll look at the information in it and convert it into HTML. The DOM tree is a very useful data structure that allows us to manipulate the contents of the XML document. This paper focuses on building the tree, navigating through its contents, and generating HTML based on the nodes in the tree.
* DomView - DOM API Analyzer for XML Parsers
DomView is a program that allows you to learn how to use the DOM 1.0 API. It does so by displaying XML documents as a tree of nodes and then displaying the DOM interfaces that each node implements; it also invokes methods that are available for each interface and displays the output of these methods. This tool is great for learning what exactly a DOM object tree is and how it can be used to extract or process information in your XML documents. It is also useful for seeing the differences in the DOM API implementation in different XML parsers.
