XML Data Binding with JiBX
JiBX is an open source XML data binding API for Java. JiBX is younger than most other APIs in this space (Castor XML, BEA XMLBeans, JAXB). JiBX's philosophy on data binding is that: [a] databinding should be fast, and [b] databinding frameworks should allow for the divergence and evolution of your codebase from its xml representation. JiBX excels on both counts and consequently is a practical tool for the purpose of data binding. In this session, Eitan will be covering all aspects of Dennis Sosnoski's JiBX framework.
Session Goals: To learn the JiBX API in detail. JiBX can considerably simplify the task of parsing XML content into business objects and generating XML representations of these business objects.
Prerequisites: Basic understanding of XML, but not of any of the variety of standards that build upon that foundation. Basic understanding of the Java programming language.
Session Rating: Intermediate
Category: XML/Web Services
