Oracle's Lead XML Evangelist and Key Oracle XML Developer Authors O'Reilly's Building Oracle XML Applications

Press release: September 29, 2000

SEBASTOPOL, CA--O'Reilly & Associates' newest release, Building Oracle XML Applications by Steve Muench, addresses two important technologies, Oracle and XML (Extensible Markup Language). The primary focus of the book is to provide Java and PL/SQL developers a rich and detailed look at the many tools Oracle has created to support XML development, such as the Oracle XML Parser, the Oracle XML SQL Utility, and the XSQL Servlet.

XML is a flexible way to create common information formats and share both the format and data globally, on the Web, via intranets, and elsewhere. Oracle Corporation has XML-enabled its entire Oracle Internet platform--the Oracle8i database, Oracle interMedia, Oracle Application Server, and a variety of other products.

Building Oracle XML Applications, demystifies combining the power of XML and XSLT with the speed, functionality, and reliability of the Oracle database. The author delivers 800 pages of entertaining text, helpful timesaving hints, and extensive examples that developers can immediately put to use to build flexible, custom XML applications.

Meunch is a ten-year veteran with Oracle Corporation and Oracle's primary representative to the W3C XSL Working Group, as well as a consulting product manager and developer working on Oracle Business Components for Java--an XML-based business object framework. "More than ever before, developers need to be able to rapidly acquire, integrate, repurpose, and exchange information with other applications to feed their growing databases and to coordinate their business operations with those of partners and suppliers over the Web," he says. Building Oracle XML Applications, shows how to dramatically simplify these tasks.

Accompanying the copious documentation is a CD-ROM containing JDeveloper 3.1, an integrated development environment for Java developers.

Meet Steve Muench at O'Reilly's booth at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Oct. 2-4, 2000. O'Reilly & Associates will be located at booth #2415.
