Welcome to the XML.NET Developer’s Guide! We have taken great care to create a
quality reference book for XML programmers who want to enhance their coding
skills to include applications for the .NET platform.This book assumes that you do
have previous exposure to XML and are familiar with VB.NET, C#, and ASP.NET.
In other words, this book is not for a novice or beginner.
Since its inception in February of 1998, XML has been moving forward through
the continued efforts of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
This course is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of XML and its significant derivative companion technologies: XML Schema, Namespaces, XPath, and XSL Transformations. Document Type Declarations (DTDs) are also introduced. The course is targeted to Information Technology professionals involved in the exchange of information using XML as the data transport mechanism.
This book is targeted at programmers who need to
develop solutions using XML. Being a programmer
myself, I know that theory without practical examples and
applications can be tedious, and you probably want to get
straight to real-world examples. You’re in luck, because this
book is full of working examples—but not in this chapter.
Some theory is necessary so that you have a fundamental
understanding of XML. I’ll keep the theory of XML and related
technologies to a minimum as I progress through the chapters,
but we do need to cover some of the basics up front....

This book teaches you the fundamentals of databases, including relational database theory, logical and physical database design, and the SQL language. Advanced topics include using functions, stored procedures and XML.
XML Schema is poised to play a central role in the future of XML processing, especially in Web services where it serves as one of the fundamental pillars that higher levels of abstraction are built upon. This unit describes how to use the XML Schema definition language in more detail.
Explain that XML is fundamental to Web Services. Do not spend much time
on the basics of XML. Briefly review the important XML concepts. Cover
the topics on XSD as a progressive tutorial, rather than a list of concepts.
Explain how the default serialization behavior for .NET Framework data
types can be modified. Explain the importance of the ability to modify
default serialization behavior of data types.
Assumes you know nothing about XML or
XML based technologies.
Provides a basic introduction to XML
Demonstrates some of the basics of
working with the DOM, XSLT, Schema,
WSDL, and SOAP.
The latest jargon in the digital world, "cloud computing" leaves many small-business owners scratching their heads. At its simplest, cloud computing enables businesses to do away with servers and much of their other IT hardware by running their software online. Web-based email programs like Yahoo or Hotmail are examples of cloud-based applications; Microsoft is making its entire Office suite available free in the cloud; Google and others also have productivity suites in the cloud.
So you want to get a proper start in programming but don’t know quite where to begin? You couldn’t
have chosen a better tool to get you on the ground running than Microsoft’s new programming application,
Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. Of course, you’ll now need to learn how to use it, maximizing
your education while minimizing the impact on your busy life.
Created by the Microsoft Visual Basic development team in convenient, easy-to-digest print form, Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Programmer's Guide is a comprehensive resource for beginning to intermediate users. It is designed to help you get the best possible results from one of Microsoft's most popular programming systems for Windows. Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 Programmer's Guide
Tutorial: Learning to Program Amos with Visual Basic
You can use Amos 4.0 as a component in the computer programs you write. It is a relatively easy process because Amos lets you work in a general-purpose programming language instead of having to learn some special language. To use Amos 4.0 with your program, you need to program in a language or environment that can control automation servers, e.g., Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft C++, the SPSS scripting facility, SAS, DEC Visual FORTRAN or Borland Delphi1.
Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a standardized general-purpose modeling language in the field of object-oriented software engineering. The Unified Modeling Language includes a set of graphic notation techniques to create visual models of object-oriented software-intensive systems.
The Unified Modeling Language was developed by Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson and Jim Rumbaugh at Rational Software in the 1990s. It was adopted by the Object Management Group (OMG) in 1997, and has been managed by this organisation ever since.
The Oracle server uses many memory components, background processes, and file structures for its backup and recovery mechanism. This lesson reviews the concepts presented in the Oracle9i Database Administration Fundamentals I course, with an emphasis on backup and recovery requirements.
An Oracle instance consists of memory areas (mainly System Global Area [SGA]) and background processes, namely PMON, SMON, DBWn, LGWR, and CKPT. An instance is created during the nomount stage of the database startup after the parameter file has been read.
Data Loading Methods
Several methods are available for loading data into tables in an Oracle database. Of the methods available, Direct Load insert and SQL*Loader are discussed here. Export and Import are covered in the Oracle9i Database Administration Fundamentals II course.
SQL*Loader loads data from external files into tables of an Oracle database. It has a powerful data parsing engine that places little limitation on the format of the data in the data file.
Direct Load insert can be used to copy data from one table to another table within the same database.
Chapter 7 - Database processing applications andbusiness intelligence. In this chapter, you will learn: Understand and be able to set up Web database processing, learn the basic concepts of Extensible Markup Language (XML), learn the basic concepts of business intelligence (BI) systems, learn the basic concepts of OLAP and data mining.
