XML for Managers


Got data? XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a W3C standard for encoding self-describing data. It is designed to ease the interchange of diverse types of data across a variety of platforms and applications, including the WWW.

This course presents an introduction to XML and its related standards: DTD (for specifying document types), XSL (for stylesheets), XLink (for links) and XPointer (for pointers), DOM (for object tree construction) and SAX (for event-based parsing).

It will also survey some XML vocabularies that are being formed or established for data communication in a variety of domains. We will examine approaches to using XML to create "information communities". XML's role in enterprise architectures and as an enabling technology for business-to-business applications will be studied.

The goal is to provide a technical overview of XML and related technologies at sufficient depth to enable evaluation of its suitability for your needs.

Course Structure

The course is presented as 1 day of lecture with some live demonstration if facilities permit.
