Book: Professional XML Development with Apache Tools : Xerces, Xalan, FOP, Cocoon, Axis, Xindice
Publisher: Wrox Press
If you’re a Java Programmer working with XML, you probably already use some of the tools developed by the Apache Software Foundation. This book is a code-intensive guide to the Apache XML tools that are most relevant for Java developers, including Xerces, Xalan, FOP, Cocoon, Axis, and Xindice.
Theodore Leung, a founding member of the Apache XML Project, focuses on the unique capabilities of these best-of-breed XML tools. With the help of a sample application, he demonstrates how you can use them in unison to develop professional XML/Java applications for the real world.
If you need in-depth information to help you assemble a workable toolbox for developing sophisticated XML-based applications, you’ll find it in this volume.
