XML Books We Recommend (More Technical)
- The XML Companion (2nd Edition), by Neil Bradley
- Very good basic technical introduction. Clear, concise, thorough, hype-free, for the serious newcomer.
- Professional XML, by Richard Anderson, Mark
Birbeck and ten more authors (Wrox Press Ltd.)
- Light technical level. Each author wrote an introduction and then
examples/case study for one technical topic. Introduces the problems of XML and
databases, the XML APIs DOM and SAX, server to server XML (XML-RPC, SOAP, etc.), and more.
- The SGML/XML Cookbook, by Rick Jelliffe (Prentice
Hall PTR, 1998)
- Balanced, good coverage of broader issues. Oriented towards structured
documents and character set issues for human use rather than EDI or systems-integration problems.
