XML Data Management
Akmal B. Chaudhri
0201844524
Mar 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
The past few years have seen a dramatic increase in the popularity and adoption of XML, the Extensible Markup Language. This explosive growth is driven by its ability to provide a standardized, extensible means of including semantic information within documents describing semi-structured data. This makes it possible to address the shortcomings of existing markup languages such as HTML and support data exchange in e-business environments. Consider, for instance, the simple HTML document in Listing P.1. The data contained in the document is intertwined with information about its presentation. In fact, the tags describe only how the data is to be formatted. There is no semantic information that the data represents a person's name and address. Consequently, an interpreter cannot make any sound judgments about the...

Review
"I was a big fan of the first edition and I'm excited about this new edition."
--Peter Norvig, Director of Search Quality, Google, Inc.

"This book presents this new discipline in a very accessible form: both as a text to train the next generation of practitioners and researchers, and to inform lifelong learners like myself.
