In XML: Problem – Design – Solution by Mitch Amiano, Conrad D’Cruz, Kay Ethier, Michael D. Thomas (Worx – Wiley Publishers), the four accomplished XML gurus walk their readers through the process of building complete, functional, end-to-end XML solutions. In short, they spell out a problem and help readers solve it, providing step-by-step guidance and the XML code as download from the book’s companion website. The “problem – solution” approach is a good one as it enables readers to understand how XML markup facilitates the sharing of data across applications internally, or externally, with partners or customers—even those that use disparate software applications. If you’re looking for some practical XML examples and would like to learn on your own, recommends you pick up a copy of the book today. At $34.99 retail, it’s a steal!
