Programming With XML Using Visual Basic 9.0
Programming with XML has traditionally been done using the DOM API, XSLT and XPath. Using this approach, the developer not only needs to understand XML, but also needs to become proficient in these additional technologies in order to be productive. Visual Basic 9.0 provides an alternative to the traditional approach through the implementation of the new LINQ to XML (formerly known as XLinq) features and incorporating XML literals and “axis” properties that simplify accessing and navigating XML structures. One of these new features, specifically XML literals, is unique to the Visual Basic language in Visual Studio 2008 and provides a distinctive approach to programming with XML. In addition, enhanced user experience and debugging support within Visual Studio helps improve a developer’s productivity while working with XML. In these videos, using a realistic application, we will look at the new features and capabilities available in Visual Basic 9.0 that relate to programming with XML.

XML in .NET: Object Serialization
One of the more powerful facilities of the .NET framework is its capability to store and retrieve object state from XML in a process called XML object serialization. In this article, Dale Michalk shows how to use this to parse and create XML documents with ease and minimal coding.

XML in .NET: The DOM Interface
In this article, Dale Michalk focuses on the Document Object Model (DOM) API for XML information processing. Most programmers have become accustomed to this model while using XML parsers such as MXSML.

Standards for Service-Oriented Architecture
XML and Web services are emerging as the platform for service-oriented architecture (SOA), both for intra- and inter-enterprise communication. As the first Java integrated development environment (IDE) for both authoring and consuming SOA, WebLogic Workshop inherently pushed the envelope with proprietary innovations. Since then, BEA has delivered on the promise of investment protection for these innovations via mechanisms ranging from open standards to open source. BEA's commitment to investment protection frees developers to take advantage of its cutting-edge productivity and integration features without fear of vendor lock-in. Let's take a look at the key SOA-based innovations in Workshop and how investment is protected in each case.

InfoPath: Closing the Circuit on XML Transport
XML is the preferred way of transporting data from one system to another because it represents the structure and relationships of data elements without regard for presentation. XML has become the standard method for transporting data and has consequently driven the evolution of other technologies in recent years. Web services use HTTP/XML to request services and receive results. Databases support direct input and output of XML. XPath supports XML queries, and XSLT controls the visual presentation of XML data.

Using the AdRotator Web Control in ASP.NET
By far one of the easiest web controls to implement into a website, the AdRotator is a great introduction into plugging a control into your site, as well as a good introduction for those of you who have little experience with XML. From start to finish, it took me about 10 minutes to have rotating ads on the bottom of all my pages, with the ability to show certain ads more often than others. There are two steps to using the AdRotator on your page: creating an instance of the AdRotator web control on the page and creating the advertisement xml file.

Load XML Fragments
There are many situations where you might find yourself holding an XmlReader that contains XML fragments representing data rows or pieces of an XML document. One of the most common is if you perform a query against SQL Server with a FOR XML clause. Another might be if you get that row set from a Web services call. Unless you just rip through the nodes in a forward-only, read-only, node-level manner, you will probably want to get that data in a more usable form for you application. You may want to get the data into an XmlDocument so that you can work with it using the XML Document Object Model (DOM), or you may want to get it into a DataSet so that you can easily data-bind against it. You may want to do both - be able to run XPath queries against the data, and data-bind to a grid in the UI.
