XML Development with PHP No-Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP is ideal for Web developers who want to discover what can be done using XML, whether they be experienced with PHP or relative newcomers. All that's needed to get started is a good understanding of HTML and some experience with PHP. This book will introduce you to the world of XML, Walk you, step by step, through the creation of an XML-powered Website and; Show you the power and flexibility of XML to manipulate the data within that Website. Unlike other dry, boring, theoretical writing on XML, this book doesn’t cover the entire spectrum of XML technologies; it covers practical uses of XML that are useful to Web developers right now. For example, the book covers XPath in depth, showing you how to easily target and manipulate elements in real world documents.

This book is designed to help you to get your feet (and perhaps your ankles, shins, and knees) wet with the topic of XML. You can instantly test out and apply the code examples provided in the book (and available for free download) to get a hands-on feel for the technology, and you'll gain the confidence to go out and build more. The XML-powered content management system (CMS) that you’ll build will be a complete, ready-to-use application. It draws on the author's experience of building XML-powered dynamic Websites for a living. Best of all, the system that you build can be customized and re-used over and over again thanks to the versatility of XML, potentially saving you hundreds of hours of tedious coding.

The book teaches you exactly why XML is so powerful and versatile, and you'll see just what PHP 5.0 is capable of achieving with XML. The book quite simply teaches you what you need to know about XML in order to use it effectively. You'll learn how to:

  1. Write portable XML documents that can be re-used across applications.
  2. Use XML namespaces to combine data formats in many ways.
  3. Use DTDs to strictly define the structure of your XML documents.
  4. Use XSLT to transform your existing data into other formats.
  5. Write XPath queries to retrieve data from an XML document.
  6. Use XML in conjunction with databases.
  7. Use the Document Object Model (DOM) to manipulate documents.
  8. Rapidly process XML using PHP 5.0's built-in SimpleXML functionality.
  9. Use fast SAX parsers to read an XML document incrementally.
