The XML Files

The absence of standards is the biggest, but not the only, flaw wracking XML, causing many to wonder if it's hardly the nostrum Web-based languages need.



Verizon Logistics' Walker, is simply glad that XML is available. Despite its flaws, as long as you carefully coordinate with your trading partners, XML remains a good way to communicate, he says. I can't think of a better alternative.

What is XML?


XML is a Web-based standard that is designed  to help companies conduct an almost endless variety of B2B information exchanges and transactions with customers and business partners. Unlike HTML, which offers a predefined vocabulary for building Web sites, XML lets software developers define their own vocabulary to build systems that exchange data, such as price and product information.
