Oracle Corporation, committed to supporting XML in a wide range of products, has XML-enabled its entire Oracle Internet platform - the Oracle8i database, Oracle interMedia, Oracle Application Server, and a variety of other products. "Building Oracle XML Applications" gives Java and PL/SQL developers a detailed look at the many tools Oracle has provided to support XML development, such as the Oracle XML Parser, the Oracle XML SQL Utility, and the XSQL Servlet. This book shows how to combine the power of XML and XSLT with the speed, functionality, and reliability of the Oracle database to build flexible applications. The author delivers nearly 800 pages of text, helpful and time-saving hints, and extensive examples that developers can put to use immediately to build custom XML applications. Products covered include: XSQL pages and the XSQL servlet - declarative templates and an extensive framework to assemble any kind of static or dynamic XML information and transform it for delivery using XSLT stylesheets; JDeveloper - a complete integrated development environment for Java XML developers, including editing, syntax checking, debugging, and more; and XSLT Processor - a product that enables XML information to be presented and delivered in many different ways, using any Web-based format, both inside and outside the database. It also includes information on: XML SQL utility - an Oracle utility that works with the results of SQL statements as XML documents and uses XML documents to insert, update, and delete information from database tables, views, and object views; XML Parser - a product that lets Java, PL/SQL, C, and C++ developers process and construct XML; interMedia - a product whose Text option lets developers search XML documents from SQL and leverage the XML document structure for razor-sharp search precision; Advanced Queuing - an Oracle queuing mechanism that lets both PL/SQL and Java programs enqueue and and dequeue XML messages; and PLSXML utilities - Oracle PL/SQL utilities that let developers using any version of Oracle produce XML from SQL statements. The accompanying CD-ROM contains JDeveloper 3.1, an integrated development environment for Java developers.
