Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking XPath for a spin, part of XML Essential Training.
Okay, let's take what we've learned about xPaths so far and…take it out for a spin on some sample XML data.…Now, I'm going to be using Aptana Studio for…this and if you chose not to use Aptana Studio…and you're using your own text editor, that's okay,…you can either sit back and watch and follow along.…Or if you want to try out xpath for yourself, there are some pretty…good online xPath testers.…So go over to the browser and once you're…in the browser do a google search on xPath tester.…
