XML Processing on z/OS

A new Redbook has just been published that discusses XML Processing on z/OS. The book starts out with XML Essentials, so that even beginners to the XML world can make use of this book. After the introduction the different options of XML processing, ranging from COBOL, PL/I over CICS, IMS, and DB2 pureXML to Rational Developer and Java-based solutions are discussed in an overview section. The rest of the book then deals in detail with the different options and also includes a chapter about performance and cost considerations.
