XML & Data in Application Development

XML is an open, text-based markup language that provides structural and semantic information to data. This "data about data," or metadata, provides meaning and context to the application using it, and even supports manipulation and display. The course focuses on techniques to make this data useful for business applications, as well as for browser display. Hands-on experience with the XML formats and manipulation, which includes programming techniques, forms the weekly assignments, culminating in a summary project. Other standards, such as JSON, are discussed, as well as use of CSS for display of XML data. Some JavaScript is introduced to illustrate the document model and techniques for integration of data. Prerequisites: Students should have familiarity with constructing HTML web pages and data concepts. Familiarity with a data manipulation or programming language will be helpful.
