Item description for RSS and Atom in Action: Web 2.0 Building Blocks by Dave Johnson...
An innovator's guide to application development with blog, wiki, and newsfeed technologies, this book introduces the new ways of collaboration enabled by these technologies and focuses on the fundamental concepts needed to understand how the technologies can be used in real world applications. Blog and wiki server internals are covered in depth, and newsfeed formats and web service protocols for blogging are covered from a developer's point-of-view. Also covered are a variety of techiques programmers can use to monitor blog conversations, such as newsfeed search engines, and ways to join in the conversation such as comments, trackbacks, and Weblogs.com pings. Examples in Java and C# are provided to show how to parse Atom and RSS format newsfeeds, how to generate valid newsfeeds, how to serve them efficiently, and how to automate blogging via web services based on the new Atom protocol and the older MetaWeblog API. Focus is given to more than a dozen blog apps---small but immediately useful example applications based on blog, wiki, and newsfeed technologies.

Reviews - What do customers think about RSS and Atom in Action: Web 2.0 Building Blocks?
Basic basic stuff Jun 18, 2007
If you are not a real newbie in the blogging stuff you'll get 4 chapters teaching you all you already know about blogging. The interesting part is not that deep. I would definitely only recommend this for beginners.
Exceptional Book! Apr 4, 2007
This book is one of the best books I've read in sometime, and I read quite a bit! I seldom give 5 stars, but this was any easy choice. The author provides comprehensive, logical coverage of this exciting technology area. The best part is that the book is just the beginning! His samples and associated software are all available and maintained online. Unlike too many books published these days, the grammar, spelling and usage are superb! If you are unsure, don't delay! Go ahead and purchase it.
Good read Feb 24, 2007
This book introduces the concepts very clearly and gives lot of examples in Java and C#. I don't know if there are any mistakes in the example code.
I liked this book primarily due to its ideas. Some of them are not new, such as generating feeds for your development process from Ant.
Realistic and useful Nov 19, 2006
I've buyed this book for RSS and newsfeeds in particular. The book explains how to add web20 support in your web site from RSS to blogs, with examples in java & C#.
I've expected more examples and more complex, but the argument is depicted as a web professional requires.
It's for developers.
RSS and Atom from the application developer perspective Oct 2, 2006
I've read other books on RSS; this one is somewhat unique because it covers RSS and Atom from the application developer perspective; it's not a book on XML or the RSS/Atom's syntax; it's aimed at programmers that want to build applications that handle RSS/Atom feeds. So you will find plenty of real-world code, both in Java and C#. Developers working in other platforms will miss the direct benefits of the sample code and applications, but I guess it would e a worthy read for them as well (it was for me)
