|Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist, Second Edition: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL
Lowest new price: $46.29
Lowest used price: $33.40
List price: $57.95
Author: Dean Allemang
Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL, Second Edition, discusses the capabilities of Semantic Web modeling languages, such as RDFS (Resource Description Framework Schema) and OWL (Web Ontology Language). Organized into 16 chapters, the book provides examples to illustrate the use of Semantic Web technologies in solving common modeling problems. It uses the life and works of William Shakespeare to demonstrate some of the most basic capabilities of the Semantic Web.
The book first provides an overview of the Semantic Web and aspects of the Web. It then discusses semantic modeling and how it can support the development from chaotic information gathering to one characterized by information sharing, cooperation, and collaboration. It also explains the use of RDF to implement the Semantic Web by allowing information to be distributed over the Web, along with the use of SPARQL to access RDF data. Moreover, the reader is introduced to components that make up a Semantic Web deployment and how they fit together, the concept of inferencing in the Semantic Web, and how RDFS differs from other schema languages. Finally, the book considers the use of SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) to manage vocabularies by taking advantage of the inferencing structure of RDFS-Plus.
This book is intended for the working ontologist who is trying to create a domain model on the Semantic Web.
- Updated with the latest developments and advances in Semantic Web technologies for organizing, querying, and processing information, including SPARQL, RDF and RDFS, OWL 2.0, and SKOS
- Detailed information on the ontologies used in today's key web applications, including ecommerce, social networking, data mining, using government data, and more
- Even more illustrative examples and case studies that demonstrate what semantic technologies are and how they work together to solve real-world problems

|XML and JSON Recipes for SQL Server: A Problem-Solution Approach
Lowest new price: $26.27
Lowest used price: $36.35
List price: $34.99
Author: Alex Grinberg
Quickly find solutions to dozens of common problems encountered while using XML and JSON features that are built into SQL Server. Content is presented in the popular problem-solution format. Look up the problem that you want to solve. Read the solution. Apply the solution directly in your own code. Problem solved!
This book shows how to take advantage of XML and JSON to share data and automate tasks. JSON is commonly used to move data back and forth between the database and front-end applications, often running in a browser. This book shows all you need to know about transforming query results into JSON format, and back again. Also covered are the processes and techniques for moving data into and out of XML format for business intelligence and other purposes, such as when transferring data from a reporting system into a data warehouse, or between different database brands such as between SQL Server and Oracle.
Microsoft intensively implements XML in SQL Server, and in many related products. Execution plans are generated in XML format, and this book shows you how to parse those plans and automate the detection of performance problems. The relatively new Extended Events feature writes tracing data into XML files, and the recipes in this book help in parsing those files.
XML is also used in SQL Server's BI tool set, including in SSIS, SSR, and SSAS. XML is used in many configuration files, and is even behind the construction of DDL triggers. In reading this book you’ll dive deeply into the features that allow you to build and parse XML, and also JSON, which is a specific format of XML used to transmit objects in a web-friendly format between a database and its front-end applications.
What You Will Learn
- Build XML and JSON objects in support of automation and data transfer
- Import and parse XML and JSON from operating system files
- Build appropriate indexes on XML objects to improve query performance
- Move data from query result sets into JSON format, and back again
- Automate the detection of database performance problems by querying and parsing the database’s own execution plans
- Replace external and manual JSON processes with SQL Server's internal, JSON functionality
Who This Book Is For
Database administrators, .NET developers, business intelligence developers, and other professionals who want a deep and detailed skill set around working with XML and JSON in a SQL Server database environment. Web developers will particularly find the book useful for its coverage of transforming database result sets into JSON text that can be transmitted to front-end web applications.

Q&A with William Penberthy, author of "Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications"
Q. Why is “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications” an important book for people to read right now?
A. We are hitting a cycle where more and more applications, both web-based and traditional client-based, are being replaced as they hit the end of their lifespan. There is also an industry trend toward trying to provide users with a single, web-based application that supports many different viewing platforms; including desktop, tablet, and mobile. ASP.NET MVC 4 provides support for all of these different clients out of the box with a powerful, yet extremely easy-to-use, platform that allows for rapid development and easy testing. ASP.NET MVC 4 also supports client side-technologies such as jQuery and Knockout.js that help developers build rich and interactive user interfaces. This book is timely because it takes a higher-level look at implementing the technology in the context of common business problems. It is not a coding book, but more of a design and approach book that helps experienced developers predict and manage potential problems.
Q. What will readers walk away with after reading “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications?”
A. The 70-486 is not a traditional Microsoft test, so this book is not a traditional exam prep guide. First and foremost, this book is designed to help experienced developers be successful when taking the test. After that, the most important information in the book revolves around the “when” and “how” various aspects of ASP.NET MVC 4 can be implemented. The book may not tell you how to do everything in ASP.NET MVC 4, it instead acts as a guide to what can be done and when a particular approach makes sense when looking at the bigger picture. ASP.NET is almost frighteningly flexible and customizable, if you can think of something that may need to be done; there is more than likely a way to do it.

After years of anticipation and delay, the W3C finally released the XSLT 2.0 standard in January 2007. The revised edition of this classic book offers practical, real-world examples that demonstrate how you can apply XSLT stylesheets to XML data using either the new specification, or the older XSLT 1.0 standard.
XSLT is a critical language for converting XML documents into other formats, such as HTML code or a PDF file. With XSLT, you get a thorough understanding of XSLT and XPath and their relationship to other web standards, along with recommendations for a honed toolkit in an open platform-neutral, standards-based environment. This book:
- Covers the XSLT basics, including simple stylesheets and methods for setting up transformation engines
- Walks you through the many parts of XSLT, particularly XSLT's template-based approach to transformations
- Applies both XSLT 1.0 and 2.0 solutions to the same problems, helping you decide which version of XSLT is more appropriate for your project
- Includes profuse examples that complement both the tutorial and the reference material
The new edition of XSLT has been updated thoroughly to explain XSLT 2.0's many dependencies, notably XML Schema and XPath 2.0. Want to find out how the 2.0 specification improves on the old? This book will explain.

In addition to Code First, EF 4.1 introduces simpler EF coding patterns with the DbContext, DbSet, ChangeTracker and Validation APIs. This second mini-book will take the reader on a tour of these new features and how to take advantage of them. These new classes and APIs let the user focus on the most common coding tasks with Entity Framework and streamlines access to patterns which are frequently used, but were previously non-intuitive and complicated to code. The Validation API that comes with DbContext leverages the existing .NET 4 IValidatableObject and ValidationAttributes as well as providing additional validation features. You will learn the ins and outs of getting the most from server side validation from the DbContext.
