2015 XQuery 14 hours This training provides: A high-level overview and quick tour of XQuery Information to write sophisticated queries, without being bogged down by the details of types, namespaces, and schemas Advanced concepts for users who want to take advantage of modularity, namespaces, typing and schemas Guidelines for working with specific types of data, such as numbers, strings, dates, URIs and processing instructions A complete alphabetical reference to the built-in functions and types Participants will also learn about XQuery's support for filtering, sorting, and grouping data, as well as how to use FLWOR expressions, XPath, and XQuery tools for extracting and combining information. During the training they will find out how to apply all of these tools to a wide variety of data sources, and how to recombine information from multiple sources into a single final output result. XQuery Introduction What Is XQuery?

2225 eXist-db Development and Performance 14 hours The objective is to enable attendees to quickly build applications inXQuery and make them ready for production use. Attendees will learn how to diagnose and resolve performance issues, properly define indexes for best performance, and how to optimise XQuery applications for concurrency. Application development in XQuery We will guide you through a number of concrete application examples to show you how to: Quickly prototype a web application in XQuery Choose an application structure Use the right tools for application development (eXide, oXygen, WebDAV) Use and write function libraries and extension modules Set up indexes, URL rewriting, external resources Package and deploy your application Performance and Optimisation Performance optimisation and making an application production ready: Understanding the basics of query execution and optimisation in eXist-db Characteristics of the different index types and their use Performance analysis, profiling Tuning indexes and database settings Optimising for concurrency You can contribute your own use cases for discussion or as an example which can can be worked through together during the day.
2226 eXist-db Introduction 7 hours Suitable for those requiring an introduction to XML and XQuery with eXist-db and can also be as a pre-training course for the 2 day eXist-db Development and Performance course. Introduction to: XML XPath XQuery XSLT
2434 Service-Oriented Architecture: Strategy, Technology and Methodology 35 hours This course is intended for Post Graduate (or equivalent) level students and will be a combination of lectures and lab sessions (theory and practice). At the end of the course the student should be able to: Knowledge and Understanding. Understand the principles and business advantage of systems developed around services. Become fully aware of the major protocols and technologies involved in the web services standard, and understand how these technologies fit together. Your knowledge will extend to leading-edge and emerging aspects of web services as well as the more established elements of the standard. Understand in depth the technology used to enable systems based on a widely used programming language to both use and provide Web Services. Intellectual Skills: Identify where the service oriented approach and in particular web services are appropriate for particular business scenarios. Consider the most effective design for a web services solution Acquire, in the future, knowledge and understanding of emerging aspects of the rapidly evolving web services standard Practical Skills: Operate with current technologies associated with Web Services that are platform neutral – XML, SOAP, WSDL Write and expose web services in a widely used programming language and write client code in that language to invoke web services. The overall approach to design of systems based on services XML The RESTful approach to web services and the SOAP standard The Web Services Definition Language (WSDL) and other standards for the specification of services. Advanced web service standards to ensure such features as security and reliability BPEL, the Business Process Execution Language Web services in the cloud and the use of web services by mobile devices.
