Course overview

This XML Fundamentals training introduces you to the basics of XML. In this 2 day hands on course, you will learn the central XML technologies, including writing well formed and valid XML, creating Document Type Definitions (DTDs) and XML schema documents and using XPath and XQuery.

Learn To:

  • Create well-formed and valid XML documents.
  • Use XML Namespaces in an XML document to resolve name ambiguities in XML documents.
  • Create Document Type Definition and XML schema documents to validate XML documents.
  • Use XPath expressions and functions to find and select nodes in XML documents.
  • Transform XML documents by using stylesheets and XPath expressions.
  • Use Oracle JDeveloper to view, create, edit, and test XML and other XML-related documents.
  • Use XQuery to query, generate, and transform XML content.
  • Identify the features and benefits of Oracle XML DB

Benefits To You

Additionally, you’ll be introduced to the support for XML offered in various Oracle products, like the Oracle XML DB and Oracle JDeveloper. Use the XQuery XML query language, which is built on XPath expressions, to query data from both XML files and relational databases. Review how to use XQuery to generate and transform XML content. You’ll learn how to use the XML concepts while exploring XML Namespaces that are used to apply uniqueness to elements.
