Ant is the premier build-management tool for Java environments. Ant is part of Jakarta, the Apache Software Foundation?s open source Java project repository. Ant is written entirely in Java, and is platform independent. Using XML, a Java developer describes the modules involved in a build, and the dependencies between those modules. Ant then does the rest, compiling components as necessary in order to build the application.
The power of XSLT is its ability to change the structure or format of any content that can be converted to XML. Java and XSLT shows you how to use XSL transformations in Java programs ranging from stand-alone applications to servlets. After an introduction to XSLT, the book focuses on applying transformations in some real-world scenarios, such as developing a discussion forum, transforming documents from one form to another, and generating content for wireless devices. Java and XSLT discusses several common XSLT processors and the TRAX API, paying special attention to performance issues. Although there's a brief tutorial introduction to the XSLT language, the primary focus of the book isn't on learning XSLT or developing stylesheets; it's on making practical use of transformations in Java code. The book covers: Introduction and Technology Review XSLT--The Basics XSLT--Beyond The Basics Java Web Architecture Programmatic Interfaces to XSLT Processors Using XSLT with Servlets Discussion Forum Implementation Advanced XSLT Web Techniques Testing, Tuning and Development Environments WAP and WML XSLT and Wireless Examples
