I have seen a number of people who passed the XML Certification recommend the XFront Tutorials (which are here: http://www.xfront.com/) however, I simply do not get the examples to work, & in particular the instructions within the tutorial batch files regarding XALAN & XERCES I do not believe are always accurate.
I have only a few minor examples of Xerces that correctly work. Does anyone here feel confident that you have have the sample programs for XERCES and XALAN working correctly? How and where did you get the run instructions?
Do you have any links you can give me?
For example: These type of questions are not clear - and yes, I have read and reread the info on the official apache site. It seems like there should be a whole book on this topic, but I guess there is none?
HIGH LEVEL TYPES OF QUESTIONS:
Which program is best to validate a file that contains xml? A file that contains dtd? A file that contains schema? A file that contains style-sheets?
OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS REGARDING RUNNING XALAN WITHOUT XERCES:
Question 01: To run the sample programs, which jar files go where?
Question 02: To run the sample programs, which parameters are needed for which programs?
Question 03: What did you enter on the command line?
Question 04: Is there anyplace on the internet or any book that has example files as input and output for each of the sample programs(so I can verify my results)?
OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS REGARDING RUNNING XERCES WITHOUT XALAN:
QUestion 01: To run the sample programs, which jar files go where?
Question 02: To run the sample programs, which parameters are needed for each programm?
Question 03: What did you enter on the command line?
Question 04: Is there anyplace on the internet or any book that has example files as input and output for each of the sample programs(so I can verify my results)?
OUTSTANDING QUESTIONS REGARDING RUNNING XERCES IN COMBINATION WITH XALAN:
Question 01: If I want to run Xerces sample programs and ALSO run Xalan sample programs, what jar files go where?
thanks!
