XML and SQL Server 2000 will enable SQL developers to understand and work with XML, the preferred technology for integrating eBusiness systems. This book will provide a comprehensive discussion of SQL Server 2000's XML capabilities. There is a brief discussion in the first two chapters on XSL/XSLT and DTD's targeted to database developers since most developers are new to this technology. From there numerous examples are discussed in the areas of IIS Directories, http, xml views and xml schemas, openxml, and much more.
