Overview

"Finally, a complete and thorough reference book covering all of the most important XML technologies, including the latest addition (XML Schema), in one concise and consistent presentation. I will definitely have this book close at hand."—Chris Lovett, Product Unit Manager, B2B Web Services, Microsoft

"A handy, comprehensive reference guide to all the latest XML and Web services technologies. Skonnard and Gudgin give you all the details in one place."—Noah Mendelsohn, Distinguished Engineer, IBM and Lotus Development Corporation, and coeditor of W3C XML Schema Recommendation

Even the most experienced XML developer needs a reference guide with essential information and quick answers to the questions and problems that inevitably arise. ESSENTIAL XML QUICK REFERENCE is the most comprehensive and authoritative book available. Covering all of XML, as well as many related protocols and technologies, this book provides a handy, one-stop resource to XML syntax, usage, and programming techniques.

Compiled and written by two leading XML authorities, the book provides complete coverage of all relevant topics. Each chapter provides a topic overview, explanations of various elements, and several meaningful examples.

ESSENTIAL XML QUICK REFERNCE is specifically designed for easy access, with a detailed table of contents, a thorough index, and side chapter tabs to help you quickly locate the information you need.
