Information Architecture with XML : A Management Strategy Information Architecture with XML : A Management Strategy (Peter Brown, 5/20/2003)
XML has been introduced into many enterprises by stealth, through the IT back door and with little management overview or buy-in. This book proposes an alternative: a management-driven strategy. Its emphasis is on the ends (information management) rather than means (technology). It focuses on the need for high-level co-operation between all business units and services within an organisation and shows how XML can be both a technology and business integrator. The benefits it can bring are high levels of interoperability, not only between data and text but also between application processes, business logic and entire information systems.

Java , XML, and JAXP Java , XML, and JAXP (Arthur Griffith, 2/1/2002)
An overwhelming amount of information about XML exists in books and magazines, on the Internet, at conferences and seminars, and even in mass mailings that can send the most technologically savvy person whirling. You could find yourself hard-pressed to find a resource that contains a concise breakdown of all that data, filtered and distilled to its bare bones–– until now. Arthur Griffith realizes that other books on the topic are often expansive tutorials that force the reader to wade through all the material before finding the critical information needed. With Java, XML, and JAXP, he provides you with instant access to critical, drill-down information on Sun’s Java XML API and the foundation for you to proceed into any region of XML usage and technology and have secure knowledge of the basics.

Geared toward developers and IT professionals with an understanding of the fundamentals of Java, HTML, and URLs, this book is filled with examples that describe and demonstrate API’s specific features and capabilities. Griffith uses his vast experience as a systems veteran to explain the two distinct ways of using Sun’s Java XML API. He explores one option of placing the XML data in an internal tree-like structure and the alternative of streaming the XML data through a filter.
