How XML is used?
In this post, we will explain the ways in which XHTML can be used and is proved fruitful. Though it is used basically for web development but mostly it is used to simplify data storage and sharing.
XML is used to separate data from HTML
XML is used to simplify the data and data transport
Think if you have to transmit the data from one system or database to another, the first issue that you will encounter is that the data on both systems or database is incompatible. XML is used to solve this issue. XML basically stores the data in simple plain text format. In this way the software or hardware does not have to worry about the way data is stored. The software and hardware is not depending on the stored data format. In this way, you can create the data which you can then share between different applications.
Now, how to transport the stored data has been a challenge for the web developers between these incompatible systems or databases. But if you exchange the data in XML files then the data can be read by any system or data base. Thus, XML has reduced the complexity of the data exchange over the internet.
XML can also be used to simplify the process of making changes in your hardware or software platforms
What if you need to upgrade to new hardware or software platforms. You would have to convert the large amount of data into new format or you could lose the data. By using XML you can store the data in simple text format. So that you do not have to convert the data from one format to another while upgrading the platforms, applications and browsers etc.
Through XML data is more accessible
If you store the data in separate XML file as a plain text, then many applications can access your data from both HTML document or XML files that you have created. In other words, the data can be accessible from many devices like computer, voice machines, mobiles etc. It can also provide access to disable people or blind persons.
XML can be used to create new internet languages
Languages like XHTML, WAP & WML (markup languages for handheld devices) and RSS etc are created using XML.
