About This Item

Reading, Mass; Harlow, Engl; Menlo PK Calif.: Addison-Wesley. Very Good 2001. Softcover. White tite, illus fresh prtg; not written-in, underlined, highlighted, clearance or discard. Usually mails within 12 hours. ; Addison-Wesley Information Technology Series; Textbook; 0.45 x 8.94 x 6.95; 208 pages; Online Rev. : Amid the technical hoopla over the Extensible Markup Language (XML) , many managers and executives find themselves scratching their heads and wondering what the new language means to them. In XML: A Manager's Guide, author Kevin Dick offers an executive summary of this exciting new technology that focuses on the big picture. This book is a quick read, partly due to its bulleted format. Frequent topic headings and accompanying blurbs in the margin for each make it easy for even hurried readers to pick up the key concepts quickly. However, the author doesn't cut any corners in describing the basic nature of XML and its associated standards and tools. The first part of the book is devoted to this high-level tutorial and includes useful diagrams and code examples that nonprogrammers can easily understand. The most instructive part of the book comes in the second half. Here, the author illustrates some of the ways XML can be useful in the real world and does a great job of demonstrating the wide-reaching applications of XML. Five example applications for enterprises and five more for vendors are presented in miniature case studies. Here the reader will see how XML can be used for workflow, data integration, distributed protocols, knowledge management, and more. --Stephen W. Plain Topics covered: XML standards background, Document Type Definitions, schemas, XLink, XSL, XSLT, development tools, associated standard status, XML application examples. From Book News, Inc. Explains the basic XML principles and elements without going into the detail needed to develop applications. Written for all types of managers, the book identifies the benefits offered by the standards related to XML, the types of software infrastructure available, and the staff necessary to deploy XML applications. The final chapters present ten example XML applications. The second edition adds a chapter on XML messaging and web services. Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR .
