Silverlight 4 has the potential to revolutionize the way we build business applications. With its flexibility, web deployment, cross-platform capabilities, rich .NET language support on the client, rich user interface control set, small runtime, and more, it comes close to the perfect platform in which to build business applications. It’s a very powerful technology, and despite its youth, it’s moving forward at a rapid pace and is gaining widespread adoption. This book will guide you through the process of designing and developing enterprise-strength business applications in Silverlight 4 and C#. You will learn how to take advantage of the power of Silverlight to develop rich and robust business applications, from getting started to deployment, and everything in between. In particular, this book will serve developers who want to learn how to design business applications, and introduce the patterns to use, the issues that you’ll face, and how to resolve them. Chris Anderson, who has been building line-of-business applications for years, demonstrates his experience through a candid presentation of how to tackle real-life issues, rather than just avoid them. Developers will benefit from his hard-won expertise through business application design patterns that he shares throughout the book. With this book in hand, you will Create a fully functional business application in Silverlight Discover how to satisfy all of the general requirements that most business applications need Develop a business application framework
What is this book about? This compact, relevant, updated version reflects recent changes in the XSLT specification and developments in XSLT parsers. The material on tools and implementations has been revised; so too have all the examples. It also includes a new chapter on writing extension functions. XML has firmly established itself as the universal standard for managing data for the web and is now being implemented on a wide scale. XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language), a vital companion to XML, is used for two main purposes: to format or style XML data so that it can be displayed in a browser and to transform XML data (XSLT). When you transform an XML document, you manipulate the data into a new structure, for example, re–ordering the data. This enables the same data store to be used in an unlimited number of ways. XSLT is a flexible, customizable, and cross–platform language. XSLT is a notoriously difficult language to understand, but this book, while being a complete reference to the recommendation, will also give code examples showing how it all ties together and can be effectively employed in a real–world development scenario. What does this book cover? In this book, you′ll find the following topics covered: The rationale behind XSLT: What is it for? The XSLT processing model Design patterns and stylesheet structure A full reference to the XPath and XSLT languages The use of XSLT with worked examplesCurrently available XSLT processors – updated to reflect recent advances in XSLT parser technology Coverage of proposed specification enhancements Who is this book for? This book is for programmers already using XML to organize their data in applications and for those who want to use the power and compatibility of XSLT to improve the display of their data. The book is in three parts: a detailed introduction to the concepts of the language, a reference section giving comprehensive specifications and working examples of every feature, and an exploitation guide giving advice and case studies for the advanced user.

Published Jun 10, 1999 by Addison-Wesley Professional. Part of the Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting series. The series editor may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. This book shows how you can publish LaTeX documents on the Web. LaTeX was born of the scientist's need to prepare well-formatted information, particularly with pictures and mathematics included; the Web was born of the scientist's need to communicate information electronically. Until now, it has been difficult to find solutions that address both needs. HTML and today's Web browsers deal inadequately with the nontextual components of scientific documents. This book, at last, describes tools and techniques for transforming LaTeX sources into Web formats for electronic publication, and for transforming Web sources into LaTeX documents for optimal printing. "You will learn how to: " Make full use of Acrobat with LaTeX Convert existing documents to HTML or XML Use mathematics in Web applications Use LaTeX to prepare Web pages Read and write simple XML/SGML Produce high-quality printed pages from Web-hosted XML or HTML pages "You will find practical descriptions of: " LaTeX2HTML, which uses Perl to interpret LaTeX source and generate HTML TeX4ht, which redefines LaTeX's macros to generate HTML or XML Browser plugins, such as techexplorer, that are able to interpret mathematical markup directly Tools for authoring and interpreting XML Tools for translating XML into various output formats, using Cascading Style Sheets, DSSSL, or XSL Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) In addition to giving the Internet location of the software described in this book, the authors also provide a full, annotated catalogue of URLs for the standards and documentation relating to this fast-moving area. Many of the packages and programs described in this book are freely available in public software archives, and the source code for examples has been placed on CTAN, the TeX archives. 0201433117B04062001
