WEBD341 Enterprise Data Exchange Using XML (3 semester hours)

This course is a study of the concepts and applications of the Extensible Markup Language (XML), a general-purpose markup language that can be used to formally specify special-purpose markup languages. This course will be taught from a mixture of analytical and practical methods. Topics include: the history of XML, the XML language, Data Type Definition (DTD), XML Schema, eXtensible Style Sheet Language (XSL), and eXtensible Style Sheet Language Transformations (XSLT). The student will bind values to elements to render them distinct and different from its other instances of that attribute and explore the power of XML as a tool for Enterprise Exchange in both the J2EE and .NET Software Development Frameworks. Knowledge of XML will enable the student to standardize and reuse reference text, paragraphs, and chapters.
