The next meeting of the XML SIG of the Object Developers Group will be
held on Tuesday, 8 August, 7-9 p.m., at Goldman Sachs, 125 Broad Street,
19th Floor, Room B. (Please note that this is a change from our usual
location at Prudential Securities. The Goldman Sachs location is just
across Broad Street from our usual venue at 1 New York Plaza.).
[directions: http://www.objdev.org/directions/goldmansachs.html].

The speaker will be Elliotte Rusty Harold, and the subject is JDOM
http://www.jdom.org/. This is an expanded version of the presentation
which Elliotte gave at XML DevCon 2000 in June. Because that talk
conflicted with our SIG's June meeting, Elliotte has very generously
agreed to repeat this presentation for our August meeting.

We are delighted to have Elliotte returning to speak to our SIG. His
presentation to us last year on XLinks and XPointers
http://metalab.unc.edu/xml/slides/xmlsig0899/ was a model of clarity and
good sense in the presentation of those standards and provided one of
our most memorable and best-attended meetings.

Elliotte Rusty Harold is an internationally respected writer,
programmer, and educator, both on the Internet and off. He lectures
about Java and object oriented programming at Polytechnic University in
Brooklyn. His Cafe au Lait web site at http://metalab.unc.edu/javafaq
has become one of the most popular independent Java sites on the
Internet, and his spin-off site Cafe con Leche at
http://metalab.unc.edu/xml has become one of the most popular XML sites.
He is the author of numerous books, most recently: The XML Bible from
IDG and Java I/O from O'Reilly.

JDOM is a tree-based, Java API for processing XML documents that's been
designed with simplicity and convenience as its foremost purposes. JDOM
programs can use any commonly available SAX or DOM parser. At a high
level, it's similar to the DOM, but since JDOM was designed specifically
for Java rather than for multiple languages, it feels much more natural
and "right" to Java programmers. This talk teaches you how to use the
JDOM to read and write XML documents from your Java programs while
automatically maintaining well-formedness and checking validity.
