Product Detail: Use XML Files! An Alternative to SQL

XML files are very common in today’s programming world. You will most likely need to read files, write files and query XML within your applications. .NET provides a rich set of XML processing classes that you can use to perform all these functions. One great use of XML files is to cache validation table data on the client instead of constantly gathering this rather static table data from the server. This technique comes in very handy in WPF, Silverlight and Windows Phone applications. You can even use XML files to completely replace SQL in some applications. In this seminar you will learn how to perform complete read, add, edit and delete operations using LINQ to XML. You will also see a technique of how to keep your XML files up-to-date with any server changes. You will walk away confident that you can put these techniques into use in your applications immediately!
