Stupid Net Tricks With XML and XSLT

Linus will dissect a few of his favorite web sites and applications
built by transforming XML data with XSLT stylesheets and demonstrate
the latest release of his universal XML editor wizard servlet used to
add a layer of interactivity along with a few odd methods he's picked
up on his quest for the perfect separation of presentation code and
data. To top it off he'll tie it all together and present a web based
enterprise ready configuration management service you can take home.

Tech demonstrated/materials used: Java servlet API, Xalan, Xerces,
Apache, Tomcat, Cocoon, Linux. XML/XSLT

    amazing! Linus knows his craft. He's no joke. In fact, I was honored to be in his presence. Sacramento.... we have a true guru among us!

    That was Cocoon 2.1 used, 2.2 is based on Spring and quite different.

    my instructor said he is covering JSON so I must stay focus on his plan.

    XML/XSLT is for lovers... of all programming languages. Have an example in perl to illustrate how far this goes. This is for The Sacramento Linux Users Group, not covering dot Net this time out, Cocoon is implemented as a Java servlet and part of the Apache project, many of the techniques I use are pure XML/XSLT and apply everywhere, just need to create a web service capable to make a transformation and you are good to go, any language or platform should do and have equivalent modules to Xerces and Xalan both of which are avaliable for C++ under Windows.

      I'm currently taking a Java course using the SpringSource tool which is loaded on my Linux machine. Is this what will be used?

      Nope, just a few plain Java servlets with nothing extra, nothing framework specific.

    I thought this is for. Net and why is Java and Linux mentioned on the notes? Sounds interesting though.
