Hi Guys,

I joined the forum today. I am planning to appear for XML Certification. Since I am a novice to XML, I have stared reading Inside XML by Steven Holzner. I am finding it useful.

I don't have java backgroud, do i need to study java also for the preparation for xml certification. Kindly guide me.

Thanks and regards,

Rakhee

You need to know the SAX and DOM API's.
which are in java.

Do note however that in the case of DOM you only need to know the API.
The API can be implemented in C++, JavaScript, java or even PERL.
In that sense you really don't need to know java to know the DOM API.
You just have to know the method names of the most important "interfaces".
Be sure to learn the DOM2 event handling methods, by the way. Learn all of the DOM1 API but you don't need all of the DOM2 API.

As robert mentioned you dont have to know java ..
But professional XML, teh prescribed book for the exam has got all the examples written in Java !!
So I think tahts what Dhiren ment by saying that u need to know Java to learn SAX and DOM !!! Right Dhiren ?

And if you are already a programmer, just go through teh examples in Java and you can easily see whats going on !!! You dont have to really write code to understand the implementation (of course ..writting code makes you understand it better!! )

Check oput teh DOM tutorials at w3schools.org. It is based on The Microsoft XML Parser. i think u just need IE 5.0 and know JavaScript!!

Hope this Helps !!

Good luck with the exam !!
