Beginning XML with C# 2008 focuses on XML and how it is used within
.NET 3.5. As you'd expect of a modern application framework,
.NET 3.5 has extensive support for XML in everything from data
access to configuration, from raw parsing to code documentation.
This book demystifies all of this. It explains the basics of XML as
well as the namespaces and objects you need to know in order to
work efficiently with XML. You will see clear, practical examples
that illustrate best practices in action. With this book,
you'll learn everything you need to know from the basics of
reading and writing XML data to using the DOM, from LINQ and SQL
Server integration to SOAP and web services.
XML is the de facto language for communication both within and
between distributed applications whether they are on the Internet
or a corporate network. As such, the .NET Framework 3.5 relies upon
XML for much of its communication and configuration. All .NET
developers need to know how to use XML and how to best take
advantage of the .NET Framework's excellent XML support.
This book provides the only complete solution to XML on the .NET
Framework 3.5, making it an indispensable guide. No knowledge of
XML is assumed and the author shows, through many hands-on examples
written in C 2008, how to get up and running with XML in the .NET
Framework. The comprehensive coverage ensures, however, that even
advanced uses of XML are covered. This all-inclusive approach means
a wide range of developers will find a use for the book, both as a
reference and as a tutorial.
