In 100 Aufgaben werden exemplarische Probleme behandelt, die nicht nur Ihre Sprachkenntnisse testen, sondern auch Ihre Fähigkeiten entwickeln, über den Tellerrand hinauszuschauen und neue Wege zu gehen, um optimale Lösungen zu finden. Sie werden mit einer Vielzahl von Herausforderungen mit unterschiedlichen Schwierigkeitsgraden konfrontiert. Und falls Sie ratlos sind, brauchen Sie sich keine Sorgen zu machen: Wir haben die besten Lösungen für Ihre Probleme in diesem Buch festgehalten und zum Download bereitgestellt. Nehmen Sie die Herausforderung an! Aus dem Inhalt: - Serialisieren und Deserialisieren von JSON- und XML-Daten - Verschlüsseln und signieren, um sichere Kommunikation zu ermöglichen - SQLite einbinden und verwenden - Mit Threads und asynchronen Funktionen parallele Algorithmen implementieren - ZIP-Daten komprimieren und dekomprimieren - Designpatterns zur Lösung von realen Fragestellungen verwenden - Client-Server-Anwendungen realisieren, die über TCP/IP kommunizieren - Datenstrukturen wie zirkulare Puffer oder Priority-Queues implementieren ´´This is representative of what I view as a strength of the book: the ability to introduce you to libraries and APIs beyond standard C++ that you may not be familiar with. I think that´s an important contribution to C++ and its effective application, and between that and the use of features new to C++17, I think it makes the book worth looking into.´´ Scott Meyers in his personal blog
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.

Designed as a wide-ranging guide to Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) and how to approach building them, this book covers a variety of different techniques available for DSLs. The goal is to provide readers with enough information to make an informed choice about whether or not to use a DSL and what kinds of DSL techniques to employ. Part I is a 150-page narrative overview that gives you a broad understanding of general principles. The reference material in Parts II through VI provides the details and examples you´ll need to get started using the various techniques discussed. Both internal and external DSL topics are covered, in addition to alternative computational models and code generation. Although the general principles and patterns presented can be used with whatever programming language you happen to be using, most of the examples are in Java or C#. Product Description When carefully selected and used, Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) may simplify complex code, promote effective communication with customers, improve productivity, and unclog development bottlenecks. In Domain-Specific Languages , noted software development expert Martin Fowler first provides the information software professionals need to decide if and when to utilize DSLs. Then, where DSLs prove suitable, Fowler presents effective techniques for building them, and guides software engineers in choosing the right approaches for their applications. This book´s techniques may be utilized with most modern object-oriented languages; the author provides numerous examples in Java and C#, as well as selected examples in Ruby. Wherever possible, chapters are organized to be self-standing, and most reference topics are presented in a familiar patterns format. Armed with this wide-ranging book, developers will have the knowledge they need to make important decisions about DSLs-and, where appropriate, gain the significant technical and business benefits they offer. The topics covered include: . How DSLs compare to frameworks and libraries, and when those alternatives are sufficient . Using parsers and parser generators, and parsing external DSLs . Understanding, comparing, and choosing DSL language constructs . Determining whether to use code generation, and comparing code generation strategies .
