This training course provides an intensive hands-on introduction to developing real world XSLT-based systems in a distributed environment.
The course will introduce the delegates to the latest theoretical and practical issues surrounding the implementation of XSLT and XPath and interfaces to languages such as Java.
Available as a public or closed course at our London training centre, or can be tailored to your team's requirements and delivered onsite as a bespoke, customised training course
This course has been developed for real-world, commercial scenarios by our expert instructors. See below for detailed syllabus. If you have a technical question, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
