From the Instructor:
This class provides an introduction to XML and a very brief introduction to HL7 (HL7 is an XML vocabulary used exclusively by the health industry). Students who are interested primarily in a thorough study of HL7 should try to find a separate class on that topic. PCC currently doesnt offer such a class. The introduction to XML is more thorough, but doesnt cover all there is to know about XML. The course involves writing XML code and passing it through an XML parser/syntax checker. Any mistakes are then corrected by the student until the XML code is correct. The course requires that the XML code be written in a logical way that represents data relationships.
Course Specific Requirements:
Software that is needed: You will need an XML parser/syntax checker. This software is free and can be downloaded/installed from the Internet. Instructions on how to do this are in the class materials at the beginning of the course. This software is also installed on most PCC campus-based, lab computers. Text for the class: XML, New Perspectives series by Patrick Carey, available in the PCC bookstore. Published by Course Technology.
Web Technical Requirements:
