    application that make use of XML ?

  2. XML is a language to ´mark up´ structured contents.
    You could e.g. convert database contents into XML.
    The special benefit is its tree-like hierarchical structure.

    Several applications of ours use XML:

    One uses XML to send data from an RDBMS to a server which again uses XSL
    to generate XHTML. This is an online travel shopping site.

    Another uses the same kind of infrastructure for a web based b2b

    Several of our web services acccept only data in XML format as input/output.

    No docs/PDF/URL for this. This is intellectual property of our customers
    and ours.

    markup language that is a supporting framework for a variety of business
