    Written by John Simpson, an author with considerable XML experience, the book offers practical knowledge of the two languages that underpin XML, XSLT and XLink. XPath and XPointer cuts through basic theory and provides real-world examples that you can use right away. Written for XML and XSLT developers and anyone else who needs to address information in XML . The XPath Programmer's Reference is the authoritative reference on XPath , a sub-language within XSLT that determines which part of an XML document the XSLT transforms. Written for professional programmers who use XML every day but find the W3C XPath specifications tough to slog through, the book explains in everyday language what every.

      One of the goals is to keep the content so concise that the book remains compact and easy to navigate while at the same time ensuring that the book is packed with as much information as possible--making it a valuable resource. Learning XSL doesn't have to be a frustrating experience, you can use XSL: The Personal Trainer for XSLT, XPath and XSL Author: William Stanek. The XPath reference information is in self-contained chapters, so it should still be accessible when you use XPath in contexts other than XSLT. The book does not cover XSL Formatting Objects, a big subject in its own right. Nor does it cover XML Schemas in any : $

      XPath (XML Path Language) Structured query language for the path-, type-, and value-based selection of XML document nodes.

This book exudes a much greater level of technical detail, especially when relating to XPath (a thorough understanding of which is incredibly important to any XSLT developer). The explanation of XPath Axes and Nodetests was extraordinarily helpful (it is a better reference than the standard itself).Cited by: The book covers the key structural elements of an XSLT file and shows you how to use simple XPath expressions to match and select source file content.

Along the way, you'll uncover a rich set of XPath functions that will benefit you again and again as you develop your XSLT by: 7. Definitive XSLT and XPath covers XSLT in great detail, but without losing the reader. It has a unique outline style (many nested lists) throughout much of the book, which takes some getting used to but turnes out to be a very efficient way of presenting by: 1.

Mastering XSLT and XPath gives you unprecedented control over your information—and helps you leverage virtually every new XML technology, from XLink to schemas.

Discover XSLT's powerful vocabulary of easy, programming-like features, and learn how to build custom solutions that resist : John Robert Gardner.

The book has many tips and tricks that I know I would have never thought of on my own. When I need to figure out some complex Xslt logic I refer to this book first. Note that there is XSLT and Xpath book assumption that you know the basics of Xslt and XPath.

However, this book is a good addition to your resource materials/5(9). Combining coverage of XSLT and XPath into XSLT and Xpath book book, this authoritative reference provides equal weight to the powerful new features of XSLT and XPath and the established capabilities of the versions/5(30).

An XPath expression returns either a node-set, a string, a Boolean, or a number. Below is a list of the operators that can be used in XPath expressions: Computes two node-sets. Less than or equal to. Greater than or equal to. price= or price= price> and price.

However, many bought the XSLT book with out its XPath companion and have been left confused in consequence; so this time, the material is once more collectively.

The XPath reference information is in self-contained chapters, so it should nonetheless be accessible everytime you use XPath in contexts apart from XSLT. I understand how XPath syntax works, and can write Xpath commands to extract certain information from a XML file. I would like to convert my XPath commands to XSLT scripts so that someone else can just run the script over the XML file to get the same output.

XPath uses path expressions to select nodes in an XML document. The node is selected by following a path or steps. The most useful path expressions are listed below: Selects all nodes with the name " nodename " Selects from the root node.

Selects nodes in the document from the current node that match the selection no matter where they are.i.e. you'd need to capture the book being tested by the outer predicate so you can compare it to the inner one.

Pure XPath doesn't support this, you'd have to iterate over the content of myBooks yourself (e.g. with an xsl:for-each, as you've tagged your question "xslt"). In XPath you can do it in one expression with an explicit quantifier.
