AxKit Tutorial
Matt Sergeant, MessageLabs Inc.

Track: Perl
Date: Monday, July 22
Time: 8:45am - 12:15pm
Location: Sea Breeze II

Apache AxKit is an XML Web Publishing framework built on top of Apache and mod_perl. Now approaching it's third year of development, AxKit has recently become an official Apache Software Foundation project. During the tutorial we will cover:

  • What XML Web Publishing is
  • Why You need it
  • How AxKit works
  • How to build web sites with AxKit
  • Templating technologies: XSLT and XPathScript
  • XSP technologies: SOAP, Forms, Database access, etc.
  • Using technologies like RSS, XHTML, and POD!
  • Extending AxKit
  • AxKit internals (if time permits)
Mainly we will focus on separation of concerns - the splitting of content, presentation, logic and site management. We will talk about how a real live site (Take23) works, and hopefully persuade the attendee that ultimately AxKit can save them time and money.
