Reviews

“This book is a succinct primer suitable for those who need to quickly acquire a basic proficiency in dealing with these two most popular methods of data integration and information exchange. The book introduces both XML and JSON at the most basic level … . Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels.” (F. H. Wild III, Choice, Vol. 54 (5), January, 2017)

“Java XML and JSON can be used as both a self-study guide and a reference for Extensible Markup Language (XML) and JSON documents and their processing in Java. … Readers will get a good understanding of the basic language concepts as well as a working knowledge of parsing methods for hierarchical documents. Each chapter is concisely written and has plenty of code examples (which can be downloaded and run), as well as implementation notes, a review test, and a summary.” (Rosario Uceda-Sosa, Computing Reviews, December, 2016)
