Learn the basics of XPath and XSLT, two core technologies for many XML projects. XPath has become an "embedded" addressing technology in many other specifications such as XSLT, XPointer, XML Query, XML Schema, Schematron and others. An understanding of this elegant XML addressing language will help you navigate through the XML world.
XSLT embeds XPath and builds upon it to create a very sophisticated transformation language for XML. XSLT has become the defacto standard way to translate one XML vocabulary into another. It is embedded in many open source and commercial applications.
We'll will cover the most used parts of the two specifications including their syntax, underlying data and processing models, statements, functions and axes.
