- Basic knowledge of formal languages, as well as some experience in OO programming (preferably in Java) and databases is required. Moreover, basic orientation in a markup language (HTML) and Internet services is needed, too.

- Course objectives
- The course is an introduction to modern markup languages predominantly based on or related to XML. It provides an overview of standards, processing, and technologies related to XML. After completion of the course, the student will be able to work independently to solve basic tasks involving XML processing.
- Learning outcomes
- Student will be able to:
- Explain the advantages, disadvantages and purpose of markup data and documents;
- actively use the terminology of markup documents, especially XML;
- select a suitable XML data model in a practical application (object model vs. event-driven processing);
- create a specific markup model in DTD, XML Schema, RelaxNG;
- create XPath expression as required;
- write XML data transformation in XSLT;
- write and run a query in XQuery;
- to describe the meaning and basic use of metadata describing XML resources, the RDF framework, ontology;
- to describe the meaning and basic use of data-driven systems, Extract-Transform-Load and Complex Event Processing (CEP).
- Modern markup languages, Extensible Markup Language (XML), its syntax. Family of XML standards.
- Standards for parsing and processing XML data. XML Document Object Model, event-driven processing, binding to concrete programming languages.
- XML data models. Approaches to XML data modelling, schema languages (DTD, XML Schema, RelaxNG, Schematron). XML validation.
- Navigation and Querying XML data. XLink, XPointer, XPath standards.
- XML transformations, XSLT.
- Query Languages for XML. Storing and processing XML data in relational and OO databases, XML data indexing, native XML databases. XQuery.
- Metadata for describing XML resources, RDF framework, ontologies. Intro to Semantic Web.
- Data-driven systems, Extract-Transform-Load. Complex Event Processing.

- Teaching methods
- The subject is taught as lectures, practices (labs) and a team project. Lectures present concepts and principles of markup languages, show demonstrations of XML technologies, development methods and tools. Labs in a PC room are aimed at solving individual tasks in the first half of the term, then at working on team projects.
- Assessment methods
- The subject is based on continuous scoring of four individually solved practical homeworks (together max. 12 points), a team project, where the ongoing work and the final result of the defense are scored (together max. 48 points) and the final written test (max. 40 points). Out of the total 100 points, for the successful completion of the course with an exam, one must obtain at least 70 points. For a completion as "credit", 60 points must be reached.
