Synopsis

A practical and concise book that teaches XML from the ground up. This tutorial style presents various XML methodologies and techniques in an easy to understand way, building a basis for further exploration. XML is essentially an enabling technology, dry and boring on its own. As a result, most books on the market are dry, and academic in nature teaching theory rather than practice. This book actually teaches practical, real-world applications of XML, using the very latest version of PHP (PHP 5) as the base language . "No Nonsense XML Web Development with PHP" explains how XML can be put to use in real-world projects. The book also covers buzz topics such as RSS and Web Services. From the Publisher If ever there were a candidate for "Most Hyped Technology' it would be Extensible Markup Language (XML). 'No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP' cuts through the hype and shows you how to get the most of this powerful, multifaceted technology. "No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP" dispenses with the theoretical possibilities of XML and presents real, practical uses of XML that you can apply to your existing Websites today.

The book will teach you, step-by-step, exactly how to: Create a full-blown Content Management System (CMS) based on XML. Create a dynamic site map using XSLT. Generate XML feeds (including RSS) for your Website. Facilitate transfer of important information between disparate systems using XML-RPC Use the Document Object Model (DOM) to manipulate documents. Rapidly process XML using PHP 5.0's built-in SimpleXML functionality. Unlike other dry, boring, theoretical writing on XML, this book doesn't cover the entire spectrum of XML technologies; it coverspractical uses of XML that are useful to Web developers right now. This book is designed to help you to get your feet (and perhaps your ankles, shins, and knees) wet with the topic of XML. You can instantly test out and apply the code examples provided in the book (and available for free download) to get a hands-on feel for the technology, and you'll gain the confidence to go out and build more. The XML-powered content management system (CMS) that you'll build will be a complete, ready-to-use application. It draws on the author's experience of building XML-powered Who Should Read This Book?

No-Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP is ideal for Web developers who want to discover what can be done using XML, whether they be experienced with PHP or relative newcomers. All that's needed to get started is a good understanding of HTML and some experience with PHP. The book is written in the usual SitePoint style: it's clear and fun to read, with plenty of blocks of example code that you can apply immediately to your own Websites. There's no need to re-type any of the code from the book. As always, all customers will receive instant download access to all the code and files used in the book so you can apply them immediately to your own projects. What Slashdot.org Says..."Kudos to the author for writing chapters on XML without sounding boring, redundant or too academic. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in developing PHP-driven Web sites that provide or consume Web services, work with XML data or generate XML for others to use."
