I have only used xml for use with ant (build.xml), and a to deploy a servlet on startup with tomcat (web.xml). A friend of mine says he uses it to build dynamic web pages. What exactly is xml and what (and where) are its uses? I am involved in the process of building a relatively large web application at the moment, and any tool I can use to make this easier will be much appreciated. Specifically I guess, can you use xml with jsp, and is it advantageous??

XML is same as HTML only thing is you can create your own tags in XML.
