Building XML-Based Web Applications

This course provides students with the skills to build a Web application of moderate complexity. Such an application connects to and retrieves data from a data source, processes Extensible Markup Language (XML) data before sending it to the client, and saves updates from the client back to the database.
Before attending this course, students must have experience with a programming or scripting language such as Visual Basic, Visual Basic Scripting Edition, Microsoft JScript or Microsoft C# as well as experience building ASP Web applications. Familiarity with XML and related technologies is helpful but not required.
