Hi All,

XML newbie here.. I started learning about XML yesterday with the goal of landing a job in Web Services.
I have a fair understanding about Servlets and JSP and I could create applications out of it but my target job requires
knowledge on Web Services.

I have been reading that XML is being used in Web services application so I started studying about it but I seem to have been lost studying
the XML and related technologies.

There seems to be quite a few such as XML/XSD/XPATH/Xquery/Relax NG/XSD/XSLT/XSLT-FO... and the list goes on...

I am quite confused here since I am only studying XML and java was not even introduced into the picture yet.

Can somebody point me in the right direction on how should I go about studying XML given my goal?
What are the technologies that I should be familiar for me to have basic XML knowledge?

How much should I know about XML and when should I start studying how Java interfaces with XML?

Thanks.

Here's an online book: Processing XML with Java. It's a bit dated in that it doesn't cover newer technologies like StAX but it's still a good start.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the book link I find it really good. However it brings me back to my first question, do I need to master all of these XML technology in order to land a job
at Web Services?

Thanks
