This module is a preface to the collection titled Introduction to XML.

Table of contents

Welcome

Welcome to my collection titled Introduction to XML . This collection contains a set of lesson modules designed to teach the fundamentals of XML. Some of the modules use Adobe Flex as the teaching vehicle.

This collection consists of two major sub-collections:

ITSE1356

The material in the ITSE1356 sub-collection, beginning with the module titled A Brief Introduction to XML , contains material that I use to teach the course identified as ITSE 1356 - Extensible Markup Language (XML) at Austin Community College in Austin, TX.

As of the Spring 2014 semester, the textbook for this course is XML: Visual QuickStart Guide, 2nd Edition , By Kevin Howard Goldberg.

Fundamentals of XML

The first three modules in the ITSE1356 sub-collection provide tutorial material written by me on the fundamentals of XML including:

  • Structured documents
  • Tags
  • Elements
  • Content
  • Attributes
  • Valid XML documents
  • Well-formed XML documents

These modules are provided to supplement the material in the Goldberg textbook.

Review questions

The next three modules in the ITSE1356 sub-collection provide review questions, answers, and explanations keyed to various chapters of the Goldberg textbook.

JSON

The review modules are followed by several modules on JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) . As a lightweight data-interchange format, JSON is emerging as a strong alternative to the use of XML for that purpose.

An introductory section on JSON is scheduled to be introduced into the ITSE 1356 course beginning in the Fall 2014 semester. JSON material is not includedin the Goldberg textbook mentioned earlier. Therefore, these JSON modules will constitute the primary learning resource for the JSON section of the course.

Flex

In addition to being the material that I use to teach the course identified above, knowledge of the material in this sub-collection is a prerequisite forunderstanding the material in the Flex sub-collection discussed below.

Flex

The Flex material is not a part of the ITSE1356 course.

Flex is an XML application that can be used to create programs that run in Adobe's Flash player. Flex is an alternative to the approach explained in Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) with ActionScript .

The material in the ITSE1356 sub-collection is somewhat theoretical in nature. The material in the Flex sub-collection, beginning with the module titled XML - Namespaces - Flex 3 , explains in practical terms how to use the Flex application.

Miscellaneous

This section contains a variety of miscellaneous information.
