Book Review: Processing XML documents with Oracle JDeveloper 11g

I am no XML expert but my first interest for the book stems from the fact that wether you like it or not, XML is everywhere; so better embrace it. The book furnishes a comprehensive coverage of all things related to XML including: creating and parsing an XML document, creating and validating an XML Schema, XPath , transforming XML with XSLT, JAXB, Oracle XML Developer Kit (XDK 11g), Oracle XML Publisher, comparing XML documents, converting XML to PDF or MS Excel, even Berkeley DB XML edition.

I have used JDeveloper for doing prorotyping work and proof of concepts related to JDBC, Java in the database, and Database Web Services but, and this is my second interest for the book, i have no idea that JDeveloper furnishes so much capabilities for processing XML documents.

I now have two good reasons to keep and use my copy of this book. For these reasons, i recommend it.
