Professional Visual Basic 6 XML teaches XML theory and application for VB programmers with no previous XML experience. Following a complete introduction to XML concepts and syntax, you'll rapidly discover where and how you can take advantage of XML in your own applications, and how to create new and innovative applications that use XML to achieve powerful results.
The open, extensible and self-describing nature of XML makes it ideal for any situation where complex data is passed from one application or tier to another, or where data needs to be stored in a custom XML format. As a VB programmer you will quickly learn how to integrate XML with VB in a distributed object architecture. This includes storing and retrieving XML from a SQL Server database using a VB front-end, implementing XML linking using a VB component, and the integration of XML and VB applications in a SOAP/BizTalk/Oasis environment. You'll learn how to write your own XML editor in VB and how to transform XML documents to and from HTML and other text formats, including MS Word.
Professional Visual Basic 6 XML is ideal for any VB programmer who wants to learn how to take advantage of XML technology and the available (free-to-use) implementations.

Even though XML is still very much a standard in motion, it is nevertheless freely available for implementation today. Professional Visual Basic 6 XML explains the basics of XML and illustrates how to use the most popular development language, Visual Basic, to drive full-featured XML applications.
This book introduces XML concepts using step-by-step code examples. Don't skip past the first part, since its descriptions of XML basics build a foundation for the rest of the book. An up-to-date snapshot of where the various pieces of the XML puzzle stand in the standardization process, and where the technology is likely to head, greatly aids the reader in understanding the discussion about schemas. For example, it's probably not a good idea to learn the syntax of the XML Schema, because the standard is still rapidly evolving.
The discussion of the Document Object Model, the programming tool for manipulating XML data structures, is excellent, with code examples that turn XML concepts into reality with useful VB utilities for controlling XML trees. As the book progresses, the reader will be directed to build an XML editor and explore distributed objects, data transformation, and much more. All of the sample application code is available from the publisher's Web site. --Stephen W. Plain
