XML by Example: Benoit Marchal
XML by Example, Second Edition: Marchal
XML is a text-based markup language that has taken the programming world by storm. More powerful than HTML yet less demanding than SGML, XML has proven itself to be flexible and resilient. XML is the perfect tool for formatting documents with even the smallest bit of complexity, from Web pages to legal contracts to books. However, XML has also proven itself to be indispensable for organizing and conveying other sorts of data as well, thus its central role in web services like SOAP and XML-RPC.As the Perl programming language was tailor-made for manipulating text, few people have disputed the fact that Perl and XML are perfectly suited for one another. The only question has been what´s the best way to do it. That´s where this book comes in.Perl & XML is aimed at Perl programmers who need to work with XML documents and data. The book covers all the major modules for XML processing in Perl, including XML::Simple, XML::Parser, XML::LibXML, XML::XPath, XML::Writer, XML::Pyx, XML::Parser::PerlSAX, XML::SAX, XML::SimpleObject, XML::TreeBuilder, XML::Grove, XML::DOM, XML::RSS, XML::Generator::DBI, and SOAP::Lite. But this book is more than just a listing of modules; it gives a complete, comprehensive tour of the landscape of Perl and XML, making sense of the myriad of modules, terminology, and techniques.This book covers:parsing XML documents and writing them out againworking with event streams and SAXtree processing and the Document Object Modeladvanced tree processing with XPath and XSLTMost valuably, the last two chapters of Perl & XML give complete examples of XML applications, pulling together all the tools at your disposal. All together, Perl & XML is the single book that gives you a solid grounding in XML processing with Perl.

If you play World of Warcraft, chances are you know what Deadly Boss Mods is: it´s the most widely downloaded modification available for World of Warcraft, considered required software for many professional raid guilds, and arguably the most popular modern video game mod in history. Paul Emmerich , the author of Deadly Boss Mods, will take you from novice to elite with his approachable, up-to-date guide to building add-ons for the most popular video game in history. Using the powerful Lua scripting language and XML, you´ll learn how to build and update powerful mods that can fundamentally remake your World of Warcraft experience and introduce you to the field of professional software development. Beginning Lua with World of Warcraft Add-ons teaches you the essentials of Lua and XML using exciting code examples that you can run and apply immediately. You´ll gain competence in Lua specifics like tables and metatables and the imperative nature of Lua as a scripting language. More advanced techniques like file persistence, error handling, and script debugging are made clear as you learn everything within the familiar, exciting context of making tools that work in Azeroth. You´ll not only learn all about the World of Warcraft application programming interface and programming, and gain coding skills that will make all your online friends think you´re a coding god, but also gain hands-on Lua scripting experience that could translate into an exciting job in the video game industry!
This book systematically introduces the development of simulation models as well as the implementation and evaluation of simulation experiments with Tecnomatix Plant Simulation. It deals with all users of Plant Simulation, who have more complex tasks to handle. It also looks for an easy entry into the program. Particular attention has been paid to introduce the simulation flow language SimTalk and its use in various areas of the simulation. The author demonstrates with over 200 examples how to combine the blocks for simulation models and how to deal with SimTalk for complex control and analysis tasks. The contents of this book ranges from a description of the basic functions of the material flow blocks to demanding topics such as the realization of a database-supported warehouse control by using the SQLite interface or the exchange of data by using XML, ActiveX, COM or DDE.
RETAIL SELLING POINTS Practical real-world examples Gradle from the ground up Takes software delivery processes to the next level. AUDIENCE No prior experience with Groovy required. This book assumes basic knowledge of Java. Product Description DESCRIPTION Gradle is the next step in JVM-based build tools. It draws on lessons learned from established build tools like Ant and Maven, incorporating and improving upon their best ideas, like full flexibility and convention over configuration. In Gradle, problem domains are declaratively modeled using a powerful Groovy DSL instead of cumbersome XML. As a result, builds are far more expressive, extensible, and testable. Gradle in Action is a comprehensive guide to end-to-end project automation with Gradle. Starting with the basics, this practical, easy-to-read book discusses how to build a full-fledged, real-world project. Along the way, it touches on advanced topics like testing, continuous integration, and monitoring code quality. It also covers tasks like setting up target environments and deploying software. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Practical real-world examples Gradle from the ground up Takes software delivery processes to the next level. AUDIENCE No prior experience with Groovy required. This book assumes basic knowledge of Java. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY Build automation is key to implementing Continuous Delivery, a hot topic these days. Enterprises want to ship software, fast and repeatable. Gradle, a powerful and expressive build tool, plays an important role as an enabling tool to support the build and deployment process.
Combining coverage of XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0 into one book, this authoritative reference provides equal weight to the powerful new features of XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0 and the established capabilities of the 1.0 versions. Author Michael Kay has created his own implementation of XSLT 2.0 (Saxon), and he puts his unique knowledge to work in this detailed reference to the elements of the XSLT 2.0 language and the fundamentals of XPath, complete with syntax, practical usage advice, and examples. The book begins by teaching the essential concepts behind the language, knowledge you need if you are going to write good code rather than just working code. You will discover how XSLT and XPath differ from other languages, and how you use them to create effective web-based applications. The central chapters provide meticulous coverage of the language features of XSLT 2.0 and XPath 2.0. You will return to this reference whenever you encounter new programming challenges. You finish with detailed case studies highlighting real applications to give you insights you would otherwise gain only from months of practical experience. What you will learn from this book * All the XSLT elements you can use in a stylesheet and the detailed rules for the syntax and semantics of each * How Path expressions enable you to navigate around the structure of an XML document * How you can improve your stylesheets by taking advantage of the XML Schema definitions of input and output documents * How to take advantage of vendor extensions without losing portability * Techniques for taking advantage of XSLT to write real applications Who this book is for This book is for experienced programmers who are looking to become proficient with XSLT 2.0. Previous experience with XSLT or XPath is not necessary. However, a working knowledge of XML, HTML, and web architecture is beneficial. Wrox Programmer´s References are designed to give the experienced developer straight facts on a new technology, without hype or unnecessary explanations. They deliver hard information with plenty of practical examples to help you apply new tools to your development projects today.
