What is this book about?

If you're a Java programmer working with XML, you probably already use some of the tools developed by the Apache Software Foundation. This book is a code-intensive guide to the Apache XML tools that are most relevant for Java developers, including Xerces, Xalan, FOP, Cocoon, Axis, and Xindice.

Theodore Leung, a founding member of the Apache XML Project, focuses on the unique capabilities of these best-of-breed XML tools. With the help of a sample application, he demonstrates how you can use them in unison to develop professional XML/Java applications for the real world.

If you need in-depth information to help you assemble a workable toolbox for developing sophisticated XML-based applications, you'll find it in this volume.

What does this book cover?

In this book, you will find out about the following:

How the Apache XML Project relates to Java programming When you'll need some of Xerces' extra parsing features, like grammar caching How to use Xalan's XSLTC to compile XSLT stylesheets into Java Prerequisites and applications for FOP and Batik Cocoon concepts and development Development techniques and practical usage for Xindice How to develop back-end applications with XML RPC and Axis Applications and concepts for XML Security

Who is this book for?

This book is written for professional Java developers who have had some exposure to XML and XSLT. To get the most from it, you should be familiar with Java, Java Web development technologies (e.g., servlets), and the command line Java tools.

Learning a complex new language is no easy task especially when it s an object-oriented computer programming language like Java. You might think the problem is your brain. It seems to have a mind of its own, a mind that doesn't always want to take in the dry, technical stuff you're forced to study.

The fact is your brain craves novelty. It's constantly searching, scanning, waiting for something unusual to happen. After all, that's the way it was built to help you stay alive. It takes all the routine, ordinary, dull stuff and filters it to the background so it won't interfere with your brain's real work--recording things that matter. How does your brain know what matters? It's like the creators of the Head First approach say, suppose you're out for a hike and a tiger jumps in front of you, what happens in your brain? Neurons fire. Emotions crank up. Chemicals surge.

That's how your brain knows.

And that's how your brain will learn Java. Head First Java combines puzzles, strong visuals, mysteries, and soul-searching interviews with famous Java objects to engage you in many different ways. It's fast, it's fun, and it's effective. And, despite its playful appearance, Head First Java is serious stuff: a complete introduction to object-oriented programming and Java. You'll learn everything from the fundamentals to advanced topics, including threads, network sockets, and distributed programming with RMI. And the new. second edition focuses on Java 5.0, the latest version of the Java language and development platform. Because Java 5.0 is a major update to the platform, with deep, code-level changes, even more careful study and implementation is required. So learning the Head First way is more important than ever.

If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect--a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. If you haven't, you're in for a treat. You'll see why people say it's unlike any other Java book you've ever read.

By exploiting how your brain works, Head First Java compresses the time it takes to learn and retain--complex information. Its unique approach not only shows you what you need to know about Java syntax, it teaches you to think like a Java programmer. If you want to be bored, buy some other book. But if you want to understand Java, this book's for you.
Ajax is short for “Asynchronous JavaScript+CSS+DOM+XMLHttpRequest.”

Even if you weren’t intimidated before, that tidbit is probably enough to make you reach for the Excedrin. Just reach for Ajax For Dummies instead. With screen shots, actual code and explanations, and live Web sites where you can see Ajax applications doing their thing, it will have you using Ajax to create Web applications that look an act like desktop applications in no time. With Ajax, you can speed up and clean up your Web applications. Shoppers at your online store can fill their carts without waiting for multiple page refreshes. Searchers on your sites can get instant results on the same page.

This guide takes you on a tour of how Ajax is used today, complete with examples of Ajax applications in action, such as an Ajax-enabled Yahoo! search or an Ajax-based chat application. Then it gives you basics on using JavaScript. After that you dive in and get info on:

Writing some Ajax, interactive mouseovers using Ajax, passing data to the server with GET or POST, and more Connecting to Google for a live search Using free Ajax frameworks so you don’t have to start from scratch, including Ajax Gold (written specifically for this book), AJAXLib, and grabbing XML with libXmlRequest All kinds of Ajax techniques, such as using Ajax for drag-and-drop operations, pop-up menus, downloading images behind the scenes, and more Using SACK (simple AJAX code kit), decoding XML with Sarissa, and creating visual effects with Rico Handling XML int Ajax Applications Working with cascading style sheets (CCS) in Ajax, including setting up the styles, displaying a menu, styling text, handling colors and backgrounds, and more Working with Ajax and PHP

Complete with a companion Web site, free Ajax frameworks, and sample code you can use, Ajax for Dummies is your friendly guide to creating truly user-friendly Web sites!
