I am trying to understand uses of XML.. I have following questions on XML... 1) What are situations/application in which XML will be best suited for example.. It could be used to do EDI for a enterprise ERP/MRP systems. 2) Are there any applications where we should use XML to present data in Browsers considering there is already CSS, DHTML technologies available ? 3) It could be used used for messaging on portable devices..
if you know some good links which demonstrated that its practical and good to used XML in certain situation .. please do post.. Thanks
Anything you can think of that could use an unambiguous standard to transfer information beteen applications could use XML, then when you consider what XSL makes possible the uses of XML are multiplied.
I have seen it used in win32 applications (auction watch). in java applications (limewire). pure coded websites in xml. and i am sure in java servlets and oracle applications (not sure on oracle) ------------------ In Gates we trust. Yeah right....
