Advanced XML
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training

This 3-day hands-on workshop is designed to provide you with the concepts, tools and techniques to enable communication between applications and platforms using XML messaging.

You will learn how to parse XML documents with Document Object Model (DOM) parsers and Simple API for XML (SAX) parsers. You will also learn to format messages using both basic XML messaging concepts and the new Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP). Both server-side and client-side XML deployment will be discussed.

This workshop includes a balanced mix of presentation, exercises and hands-on labs and also includes examples of XML in a variety of applications to reinforce and demonstrate the range and importance of XML.

Who Should Attend

This workshop is beneficial for individuals involved in developing communication between applications on heterogeneous platforms including database personnel who need to access, transfer or communicate data, analysts who will need to define and organize the requirements, and developers who will need to construct the system.


Students should have attended the introductory workshop on XML for developers, or have equivalent hands-on experience with XML. At least a reading knowledge of HTML, and proficiency in some procedural programming language or scripting language is needed. This workshop involves some programming, but is structured so that knowledge of a specific language is not required. Basic concepts and terminology of Object-Orient Programming, such as encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, interface, class, and method should be familiar.
