XSLT and XQuery

A session at XML Summer School 2011

Monday 19th September, 2011

12:00am to 12:00am (GMT)

XML makes it pos­sible to store con­tent in a stand­ard­ized format that can be con­ver­ted to a vari­ety of out­put media using a broad choice of tech­no­lo­gies. Most of these tech­no­lo­gies build on related W3C stand­ards with both com­mer­cial and open source tools sup­port. XSLT lets you define a trans­form­a­tion of a set of doc­u­ments into a par­tic­u­lar format, so that three XSLT stylesheets could cre­ate pub­lished products from the same con­tent for three dif­fer­ent media. The XQuery lan­guage lets you pull sub­sets of XML con­tent from huge repos­it­or­ies, so that XML data­bases that sup­port XQuery can (among other things) provide dynamic pub­lic­a­tions cus­tom­ized for dif­fer­ent customers.

The classes in this course will show you what you need to put XSLT and XQuery to work, as we look at effi­cient and effect­ive devel­op­ment prac­tices, how to write test-driven XSLT applic­a­tions, and where XSLT, XQuery, and related tech­no­lo­gies best fit into the applic­a­tion archi­tec­ture of a lar­ger system.

Because the “Hands-on Intro­duc­tion to XML” course will provide intro­duct­ory mater­ial on XSLT and XQuery, classes in this course will focus on help­ing exist­ing XSLT and/or XQuery developers get the most out of their code and their devel­op­ment time.
