Hi all,

I am working on a project that will have considerable data to be sent from the server to the device. Instead of just sending flat text, I was thinking of using XML.

As I understand the file has to be read on the server, stored in a string and then that string has to be sent to the client, exactly the same way as I send back flat text.

Then on the client side I´┐Żll have to use some XML parser for parsing that string.

Is there any way to transfer a XML file to the client. I mean can I get a XML file on the phone the way we get web pages on our computers.

Streaming XML works just like sending any other text file. That is one reason it is so easy to work with. You can also send it as email.
