XML : Strategic Analysis of XML for Web Application Development. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This work analyzes Extensible Markup Language (XML), the Web technology that promises to become as commonplace as Java or hypertext markup language (HTML). XML simplifies its predecessor, standard generalized markup language (SGML), and vastly expands Web page functionality. In contrast to HTML - a more specific markup language that uses tags to indicate how a browser should display text and other elements - XML manages the content and context of data. This report categorizes the uses of SGML, HTML and XML and compares their benefits and drawbacks. Because the XML data format is independent of platform, application or language, applications that can process XML documents can also exchange data. Applications process XML documents using XML parsers, which extract and tag data from the document and present it in a usable format. "XML: Strategic Analysis of XML for Web Application Development" discusses how an XML parser reads the document type definition (DTD) of an XML document and verifies that the document is well formed and valid. The report also explains the two common methods for processing XML documents: simple application programme interface for XML (SAX) and document object model (DOM). The complexity of a browser is related to its functions, options and the intricacies of the underlying parser. Because XML documents are written according to strict rules, a well-formed XML document can be processed by a simple parser and sent to a simple browser, streamlining and speeding task facilitation throughout the network. "XML: Strategic Analysis of XML for Web Application Development" demonstrates how XML elevates browser technology to reach the next level of flexibility, incorporating new capabilities that will depart from today's arbitrary vendor-driven path. As XML matures, organizations will need to decide not when or if to use the technology but how to use it and where to implement it. "XML: Strategic Analysis of XML for Web Application Development" is a useful tool for organizations that want to learn the scope of XML's unique capabilities and apply them for competitive business advantage.
