The objective of this session is to introduce developers to implementing commonly used XML functionality in applications developed using the .NET Framework and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. The focus will be on using the classes implemented in the .NET Framework XML assemblies to address common XML-related programming tasks. This presentation will not cover the basics of XML and its related technologies (XSLT, Path, DOM, concept of XML parsers and XSD schemas). Audience familiarity with these topics will be assumed.
The following are some of the key topics that will be covered in this presentation:
The XML parsing models in the .NET Framework
Implementing pull model XML parsing in .NET applications
Implementing DOM parsing in .NET applications
Implementing common DOM-related programming routines in .NET applications
Validating XML documents against DTDs, XDR schemas, and XSD schemas
Executing XPath queries and processing the generated results
Executing XSLT transformations
The code samples presented in the slides of this presentation will be written using Visual Basic .NET.
