  • 1. XML
  • 2. What is XML?
    • XML stands for E X tensible M arkup L anguage
    • XML is a markup language much like HTML
    • XML was designed to describe data
    • XML tags are not predefined. You must define your own tags
    • XML uses a Document Type Definition (DTD) or an XML Schema to describe the data
    • XML with a DTD or XML Schema is designed to be self-descriptive
    • XML is a W3C Recommendation
  • 3. XML vs. HTML
    • XML is not a replacement for HTML. XML and HTML were designed with different goals:
    • XML was designed to describe data and to focus on what data is. HTML was designed to display data and to focus on how data looks.
    • HTML is about displaying information, while XML is about describing information.
  • 4. XML
    • XML was created to structure, store and to send information.
    • The following example is a note to Kamal from Jani, stored as XML:
    • <note>
    • <to>Paresh</to>
    • <from>Jani</from> <heading>Your CV</heading>
    • <body>You have been short listed. </body>
    • </note>
  • 5. How XML can be used?
    • XML can Separate Data from HTML.
      • With XML, your data is stored outside your HTML.
    • XML is Used to Exchange Data
      • With XML, data can be exchanged between incompatible systems.
    • XML Can be Used to Share Data
      • With XML, plain text files can be used to share data.
    • XML Can be Used to Store Data
      • With XML, plain text files can be used to store data.
  • 6. XML Syntax
    • Simple xml file:
    • <?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot; encoding=&quot;ISO-8859-1&quot;?> <note>
    • <to>Paresh</to>
    • <from>Jani</from>
    • <heading>Your Resume</heading>
    • <body>You have been short listed</body> </note>
  • 7. XML Syntax
    • The first line in the document - the XML declaration - defines the XML version and the character encoding used in the document.
    • The next line describes the root element of the document (like it was saying: &quot;this document is a note&quot;):<note>
    • Next 4 lines describes 4 child elements of the root (to, from, heading, and body)
    • And finally the last line defines the end of the root element:
  • 8. XML Syntax
    • All XML Elements Must Have a Closing Tag.
    • XML Tags are Case Sensitive.
    • XML Elements Must be Properly Nested.
      • <b><i>This text is bold and italic</i></b>
    • XML Documents Must Have a Root Element.
    • XML Attribute Values Must be Quoted.
    • Comments in XML
      • <!-- This is a comment -->
  • 9. XML Elements
    • XML Elements are Extensible.
    • XML Elements have Relationships
      • Elements are related as parents and children.
    • To understand the relationships between XML elements consider the following example:
      • My First XML
        • Introduction to XML
          • What is HTML
          • What is XML
        • XML Syntax
          • Elements must have a closing tag
          • Elements must be properly nested
  • 10. XML Elements
    • <book>
    • <title>My First XML</title>
    • <prod id=&quot;33-657&quot; media=&quot;paper&quot;></prod> <chapter>Introduction to XML
    • <para>What is HTML</para>
    • <para>What is XML</para>
    • </chapter>
    • <chapter>XML Syntax
    • <para>Elements must have a closing tag</para>
    • <para>Elements must be properly nested</para> </chapter>
    • </book>
  • 11. XML Elements
    • In the above example, book is the root element. title, prod, chapter are child elements of book.
    • Book is the parent element of title, prod, and chapter.
    • Title, prod, and chapter are siblings (or sister elements ) because they have the same parent.
  • 12. XML Elements
    • XML elements have contents. An element can have element content, mixed content, simple content, or empty content. An element can also have attributes .
    • In the example above, book has element content , because it contains other elements. Chapter has mixed content because it contains both text and other elements. Para has simple content (or text content ) because it contains only text. Prod has empty content , because it carries no information.
    • In the example above only the prod element has attributes . The attribute named id has the value &quot;33-657&quot;. The attribute named media has the value &quot;paper&quot;. 
  • 13. Naming an Element
    • XML elements must follow these naming rules:
      • Names can contain letters, numbers, and other characters
      • Names must not start with a number or punctuation character
      • Names must not start with the letters xml (or XML, or Xml, etc)
      • Names cannot contain spaces
  • 14. XML Attributes
    • XML elements can have attributes in the start tag, just like HTML.
    • Attributes are used to provide additional information about elements.
    • In HTML and in XML attributes provide additional information about elements:
    • Attribute values must always be enclosed in quotes, but either single or double quotes can be used. For a person's sex, the person tag can be written like this:
      • <person sex=&quot;female&quot;> or
      • <person sex='female'>
  • 15. What is SimpleXML?
    • SimpleXML is new in PHP 5. It is an easy way of getting an element's attributes and text, if you know the XML document's layout.
    • SimpleXML converts the XML document into an object, like this:
      • Elements - Are converted to single attributes of the SimpleXMLElement object. When there's more than one element on one level, they're placed inside an array
      • Attributes - Are accessed using associative arrays, where an index corresponds to the attribute name
      • Element Data - Text data from elements are converted to strings. If an element has more than one text node, they will be arranged in the order they are found.
  • 16. Using SimpleXML
    • As of PHP 5.0, the SimpleXML functions are part of the PHP core.
      • Load the XML file.
      • Get the name of the first element.
      • Create a loop that will trigger on each child node, using the children() function.
      • Output the element name and data for each child node.
  • 17. PHP Functions for XML
    • PHP 5.0 onwards various functions are available to handle XML documents, some of them are as under:
      • simplexml_load_file()
      • simplexml_element->children()
      • simplexml_element->attribute()
  • 18. XML file
    • <?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot; encoding=&quot;ISO-8859-1&quot;?>
    • <note>
    • <to>Paresh</to>
    • <from>Jani</from>
    • <heading>Your Resume</heading>
    • <body>You have been short listed</body>
    • </note>
  • 19. simplexml_load_file()
    • The simplexml_load_file() gets a SimpleXMLElement object from an XML document.
    • Syntax:
      • simplexml_load_file(filename)
  • 20.
    • <?php
    • if (file_exists('test.xml'))
    • {
    • $xml = simplexml_load_file('test.xml'); var_dump($xml);
    • }
    • else
    • {
    • exit('Error.');
    • }
    • ?>
    •  var_dump() function displays structured information about one or more expressions that includes its type and value.
  • 21. simplexml->children()
    • The children() function gets the child nodes of the specified XML node. Syntax:
      • children()
  • 22.
    • <?php
    • $xml = simplexml_load_file(&quot;test.xml&quot;);
    • foreach ($xml->children() as $child)
    • {
    • echo &quot;Child node: &quot; . $child . &quot;<br />&quot;;
    • }
    • ?>
  • 23. simplexml->attribute()
    • The attributes() function gets an XML elements attributes.
    • Syntax:
      • attribute()
  • 24.
    • <?php
    • $xml = simplexml_load_file(&quot;test.xml&quot;); foreach($xml->body[0]->attributes() as $a => $b)
    • {
    • echo $a,'=&quot;',$b,&quot;&quot;</br>&quot;;
    • }
    • ?>
