Chapter 5 - XPath Espresso

In This Chapter

My guess is that XPath is the espresso drinker of the X-Team. Its the high-energy workman that tirelessly treads through XML documents all hours of the day and night looking for those pesky nodes. Geez, with all that effort, it needs a good shot of espresso just to keep going!

Besides, XPath has another tie-in with coffee: Creating XPath expressions reminds me of ordering a drink at Starbucks. XPath is the one X-Teamer built from the ground up to decipher confusing instructions like: Id like a venti, triple shot, wet cappuccino with nonfat milk and a dash of cinnamon. This process of taking a specific request and going in and returning the right set of nodes (or cappuccinos) is what XPath is all about.
