Data in Web Application Development

XML is an open, text-based markup language (Extensible Markup Language) that provides structural and semantic information to data. XML was designed to store and send data, and it can also be used by software and web-based applications for display. This course explores several common industry-leading approaches, models, and techniques for XML in business applications. Hands-on experience with the XML formats and manipulation, which includes syntax, structure, context, and programmatic uses of XML, form the weekly assignments, culminating in a summary project. Other related 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 object model and techniques for integration of data. Prerequisites: Students should have familiarity with constructing HTML web pages and data concepts. Familiarity with data manipulation, APIs, or a programming language will be helpful but not required.
