Next, McGrath demonstrates XML in action in an electronic-commerce environment. His conversational style leads the reader through what could be very dry topics, such as publishing databases with XML or using Channel Definition Format (CDF) to create a push-publishing channel. His friendly tone is all the handier in the section that examines XML and related standards.
The final section looks at three e-commerce initiatives based on XML--Open Financial Exchange, Electronic Data Exchange, and Open Trading Protocol. An enclosed CD-ROM contains an excellent collection of XML e-commerce development tools and useful reference material. The book's editor, Charles Goldfarb, is the developer of SGML, the parent mark-up language upon which XML is based. --Elizabeth Lewis
Card catalog description
The author, Sean Mc Grath (email@example.com) , May 30, 1998
Although it is not limited in scope to the burgeoning field of Electronic Commerce XML has a vital role to play in it.
In this book I explain XML and related technologies via e-commerce based examples.
The book is themed around the concept of an e-business selling Personal Computers from a Web Site. Every aspect of the business from accounts to marketing can benefit from the power of XML. XML applications covered include CDF (Push Publishing), OFX (Open Financial Exchange) and OTP (Open Trading Protocol).
The book also covers technologies closely associated with XML such as XLL (Hypertext Linking) XSL (Stylesheets) and Unicode (Internationalisation).
