Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video XML technologies, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Instructor] In addition to XML itself,…there are certain related technologies…that make working with XML to solve certain problems…easier and more productive.…The first is called XPath,…which stands for the eXtensible Path Language.…The reason it's called XPath is because…it uses a path-like syntax to perform queries on XML data.…If you've ever worked with folder and directory…and file names on a file system,…you'll notice that most computer systems…organize those as a path.…There's usually a drive name,…and that's followed by some folder names…down to a file name,…and all of those are usually separated by some…kind of path character, like a slash or a colon.…
XPath is very similar,…and it's used to find and extract…information from XML documents.…Next is XSLT, and that stands for XML Stylesheet…Language Transformations.…Now, you might see the word stylesheet and think,…oh, this is kind of like CSS, and it sort of is.…XSLT can be used to style XML information,…but the real important word there is transformations.…
