Book Overview (from the publisher)

This book covers the PHP language (and is up to date with the latest 4.2 release), the XML standard and the intersection between these widely used technologies. You will learn the "core" standards for XML processing such as Xpath, Dom, SAX and XSLT and how to use them from PHP. Satellite standards, vocabularies and other technical topics related to XML processing are also covered with examples, tips and suggestions from an experienced field of PHP programmers and XML experts.

Who is this book for?

This book is a tutorial, a resource and a reference for PHP programmers who need to process XML data or interface different systems using XML. Non PHP programmers who need to construct a Web based frontend for an application using XML can learn how to do it using PHP, since the book also covers the basic foundations of PHP programming. Advanced PHP programmers experienced in XML will obtain a reference as well as a very deep coverage on advanced topics.

Here is the book in a nutshell:

  • Fundamentals of the PHP programming based on PHP4
  • Fundamentals of XML
  • Summary of the large list of XML derivatives and a description of them
  • "Core" XML standards and how to use them from PHP: SAX, DOM, Xpath, XSLT
