Abstract: As a part of an upper-level systems integration course, the author incorporated instruction and projects in current integrative programming technologies, XML and Microsoft Visual Studio.NET. This paper provides an overall background on XML and IDEs and a review of the literature concerning their instructional implementations. A program of basic instruction is then reviewed and illustrated to provide a framework for the inclusion of these technologies in an information systems and sciences curriculum. Included is an active approach for learning server side programming in MS Visual Studio. The author includes exercises and evaluations of his implementation.
Keywords: programming, systems development, Integrated Development Environment, XML, Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, systems integration, .NET
