IT organizations have been dealing with a variety of data sources for a long time: relational databases, Mainframes, text files, XML documents, to name a few. SOA and Web services have been around for a number of years earning acceptance as a solid approach for systems management - one that allows for the broad reuse of existing software assets, provides a sound architectural model for the federation of disparate IT systems, and supports the automation of abstract business processes via a range of programming paradigms.

How can Web services and XML technologies help with the need to manage data spread across heteregoneous data sources? This webinar introduces an approach to data access across heterogeneous data sources and Web service integration based on XML and XQuery. During this webinar we wrote, tested and deployed real XML and XQuery-based solutions. The webinar covers:

  • Using XML to create logical views of a variety of physical data sources
  • Aggregating XML documents with relational data
  • Consuming Web services in XQuery
  • Exposing XQuery as data services
