Chapter 20. Advanced XML > Using XML-Related Technologies

Using XML-Related Technologies

In this section, we are going to look at how to work with two XML-related technologies and W3C recommendations. One is called XPath and the other is XSL/XSLT. ColdFusion MX has built-in XPath and XSLT parsers/processors, giving ColdFusion developers access to the full power of these XML-related technologies.

Using XPath

XPath is a language for finding information in an XML document. Using XPath, we can specify the locations of document structures or data in an XML document and then process the information using XSLT (which we will look at in the next section). In practice, it can be difficult to determine where XSLT stops and where XPath starts, but they were developed as two different recommendations by the W3C.
