"C++ XML" is a book exclusively devoted to the power and complexities of integrating XML standards into C++. As a developer, this is a book you cannot miss. "C++ XML" addresses all major standards, toolkits, and types of applications dealing with XML as a format for representing and exchanging data, as well as XML behavior, from a C++ standpoint. It explains the implementation of applications and reusable frameworks for all major XML purposes exclusively using C/C++ parsers and toolkits, such as expat, Xerces, Xalan, libxml2, and Microsoft's MSXML. The high-end theory and examples in this book - such as development of OpenGL applications, Visual Studio Wizards to automate DOM procedures, GIMP extension to interpret XML scripts, and more - and its exclusive C++ orientation - separates this work from any other resource (online and offline). It is a must-have for any programmer interested in a specialized, complete, and detailed view of XML technologies. This book will show you how to master: -All major XML technologies addressed exclusively from the C++ perspective (C++ SAX, DOM, XSLT, Xpath, and more) -Every aspect of efficient server-side, standalone, and client-side C++ development for XML -Extensions to your C++ programs, allowing seamless XML and database integration -Advanced techniques for the development of Windows and graphic Linux XML applications -Important concepts using examples showing applications of C++ libraries and XML (MFC, OpenGL, ODBC, GTK, and more) The CD-ROM included with this book contains: Hundreds of MB of working code, showcasing C++ exclusive applications of all major XML standards and toolkits, including (but not limited to) MSXML, Xerces, Xalan, Xpath, XSLT, SAX 2.0, DOM Level 2, and SOAP. Every line of code in the book is supported by a working program.
