Suitable for: Target Audience This course is designed to further the developers knowledge of XSL Transformations. The course is aimed at developers who already have experience of XML. Developers taking this course will learn how to extract information from an XML document and transform it into an updated version of the same XML document, a different document or HTML document. This course can be amalgamated with the end of either EC51 or EC52 to replace the normal XSL chapter, so that greater time is spent on XSL.

Course Format: Practical sessions make up a large part of the course, allowing delegates to demonstrate and reinforce the lectures given. During these sessions the delegate will gain experience of coding all types of XSL Transformations and processing them against XML instance documents. Examples are used extensively, ranging from simple code snippets to full applications with complete 'real world' functionality. These are supplied at the start of the course and it is encouraged that the delegates execute and 'experiment' with these under the instructor's guidance as they are introduced. These examples are available to take away, along with the delegate's own work. The comprehensive Student Guide supplied is fully indexed serving as a useful reference tool long after the course has finished. Delegates will also be able to access a free help-line with technical questions relating to topics covered on the course.
