It's tricky to judge the quality of a book in a field with which you're unfamiliar. One technique I've used is using common sense to find various kinds of errors-- and a good sign of this book is that each time I thought I'd caught the author in a mistake, further study always proved me wrong.
I eventually ended up reading this book practically cover to cover and soaking up as much as I could. This book has no fluff or cutesy humor. The writing is precise, to the point, and anticipated my questions. There is some repetition for example, on the topic of namespaces , making the book in my mind very useful as a reference.
The author's obvious familiarity with the standard itself and its various implementations reveals itself in the many clarifying annotations. Some of the examples are very elaborate and thorough and serve to clarify the complexities of the technology where needed-- for example, regarding the subtleties of the 'for' and 'number' family of instructions.
If there are any deficiencies in the book at all, they are minor. This didn't really distract from the value of the book, other than that an entire appendix is devoted to JAXP while there is not a single mention of libxslt making me wonder for a while whether the technologies described in this book were applicable to the problem I was trying to solve they were.
There are mentions of efficiencies that can be obtained with "a good optimizer," but with only my personal suspicion that only the author's own implementation supports them I'd still have some work to do if I wanted to evaluate the differences between them. In using the book I did often find myself confused over which parts applied to the 2.
This problem obviously will become less relevant as the later versions become more widely supported. On the topic of the technologies themselves, I've become even more convinced of the absurdity of any kind of executable XML. Also, the melding together of two intentionally separate languages XSLT vs XPath with different type systems and other complex relationships appears to have no obvious practical advantage.
Finally, if the object of one-based counting was to make the technology more accessible, the actual effect to me was to make it that much less so. In a nutshell, I have no qualms whatsoever recommending this book to a wide audience. It's extremely thorough, well-written and organized, and authoritative. You won't easily find a better book on XSLT 2. The reason is very simple: Michael Kay is THE expert on the subject, he has been publishing xslt references for almost a decade now.
Currently he is the editor of the XSLT 2.
This book like its predecessors were and its future versions will be is the definitive reference on XSLT. The third edition was in two separate books, one on XSLT 2. If you are serious about XSLT 2. So you would need both books at hand. The current book contains all of the material available in the two predecessors, and more.
I could have survived on the two books, but tired of taking them from my office to my home and vice versa, I ordered the new edition and I am enjoying it very much.
After using the new edition for a week or so I have come upon quite a few improvements, for instance the chapter on regular expressions contains more information and is better structured. Examples have been updated and as have been the appendices covering the processors. There is a new appendix on the Altova processor. I should also mention the quality of the paper, the binding and the price, they are much better than the two previous books together.
As a reference, the book is complete. It contains a clear description of all the elements of the standards and lots of tested examples. The book is extremely well written and a joy to read. The book is aimed at developers and should not be used as a first introduction to XML transformation technology unless you are an experienced programmer. In any case if you are seriously interested even as a newbie don't buy anything from before , it will not include the 2. If you buy something published after check that they really updated the book and not only the title.
I could be worthwhile to consider this book also. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have the 2nd edition in print and have used it for years. The books is not one you read linearly; you skip around to what you need to solve a particular solution.
I bought the kindle edition thinking that the cross references would be linked and save me the effort of flipping pages. Unfortunately, nothing is linked. It seems that they printed the book to pdf and slapped a paperback price on it.
I just wasted 35 bucks. One person found this helpful. See all 30 reviews.
