XML on the Web

XML on the Web

It's hard to ignore XML's promise, or the breadth of technology it is changing. With its ability to structure data transmitted on the Internet, to describe the content as well as the presentation of this information, and to enable communication between disparate applications, XML promises great efficiencies in fields ranging from Web publishing/content management to application integration to B2B marketplaces. Industry adversaries' (Microsoft's and Sun's, for example) endorsement of XML speaks volumes about its growing, central role in computing.

Here at Planet 7 Technologies, our goal is to provide the most advanced XML messaging platform for organizations stepping up to the tasks of e-business integration. Greater knowledge and understanding of XML helps us, and that is why we provide this list of XML resources available on the Web. Please feel free to suggest additional resources to webmaster@planet7tech.com.
