This two-day course offers a custom-designed, hands-on approach to XML databases.
Corporate and NYS discounts do not apply for this course.
Based on the University at Albany’s Center for Technology in Government’s ten years of research and practice in the use of XML and MicroKnowledge’s 25 years of experience in delivering high-quality technical training.
Day One covers the basics needed to understand XML and relational data and how XML can be used as an alternative or supplement for your database needs. It will examine XML within non-relational databases (such as eXist) and relational databases (such as Oracle, SQL Server).
Day Two focuses on XQuery and how to gather the same type of information you would want from a relational database query. Learn to execute XQuery statements using FLWOR to pull the needed data from the XML database. Additional topics include summarizing data, using strings and dates, structuring XML output, and joining separate XML databases.
The course will give you a strong understanding of XML databases, along with hands-on experience in putting that knowledge to work in the “real world.” In addition, a comprehensive XQuery book, supplemental SQL/XML guide and all sample files will be provided to you on a flash drive as part of your registration and attendance.
This course builds upon our Introductory XML class, “Using XML for Website Management” and our SQL and Access classes. Students should have a basic understanding of XML and database concepts prior to taking this class.
