Pro RESTful APIs: Design, Build and Integrate with REST, JSON, XML and JAX-RS

Pro RESTful APIs: Design, Build and Integrate with REST, JSON, XML and JAX-RS - Sanjay Patni

 Discover the RESTful technologies, including REST, JSON, XML, JAX-RS web services, SOAP and more, for building today's microservices, big data applications, and web service applications.  This book is based on a course the Oracle-based author is teaching for UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley which covers architecture, design best practices and coding labs.

 Pro RESTful APIs: Design gives you all the fundamentals from the top down: from the top (architecture) through the middle (design) to the bottom (coding).  This book is a must have for any microservices or web services developer building applications and services.  

What You'll Learn

  • Discover the key RESTful APIs, including REST, JSON, XML, JAX, SOAP and more
  • Use these for web services and data exchange, especially in today's big data context Harness XML, JSON, REST, and JAX-RS in examples and case studies
  • Apply best practices to your solutions’ architecture

Beginning XML with C# 7

Beginning XML with C# 7 - Bipin Joshi


 The Internet has brought a huge difference in the way we develop and use software applications. Applications have become more complex and distributed, connecting heterogeneous systems.

 With such a radical change, the role of XML is highly significant. XML has already established itself as a standard way of data encoding and transfer. In spite of the popularity of formats such as JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), XML is still being used in a wide range of applications, including enterprise applications. XML comes with a family of technologies such as XSLT, XPath, and XSD, that provide a fuller support for transforming, querying, and validating the underlying data.

 No wonder that Microsoft’s .NET Framework provides such a strong support for XML. Data access, raw parsing, serialization, configuration, code documentation, and services are some of the examples where the .NET Framework harnesses the power and flexibility of XML.

  The .NET Framework comes with a plethora of classes that allow you to work with XML data. This book demystifies XML and allied technologies. Reading and writing XML data, using DOM, ADO.NET integration with XML, SQL Server XML features, applying XSLT style sheets, SOAP, use of XML in services (ASMX/ WCF/Web API), and configuration systems are some of the topics that this book explores in detail. Neat and concise examples scattered throughout the book will help you understand the practical use of the topic under consideration. The book can also act as a handy reference when developers go on the job.

C# and XML Primer

C# and XML Primer - Jonathan Hartwell


 XML was first created in 1996 and is still in use today, both in legacy and new systems. Having been in circulation for over 20 years, there is no shortage of applications that use XML. Those applications will need to be maintained so knowledge of handling XML with C# is vital.

 When you have finished this book, you are going to be able to modify, read, and write XML using C# and the .NET framework. To accommodate for legacy systems, the book discusses how to handle XML using .NET 2.0 through .NET 4.5. The book presents concepts in small pieces and then puts them together at the end in order to give a full view of how to handle XML in the real world.

 The only prerequisite for this book is a basic knowledge of C#. There are extension methods that are used from LINQ but knowledge of LINQ is not required, as the classes that are needed will be covered. No knowledge of XML is assumed; however, if you do know XML, you will be able to skip a chapter.
