Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding XML, part of ActionScript 3.0: Working with XML.
Also you can build a simple database using XML without having to worry about learning a database language like mySQL. XML is not application-specific, meaning it doesn't matter which application using and in fact you don't need to use any application other than a plain text editor to edit an XML file. Another benefit of using XML is that it's very easy to learn. It's quite similar to HTML. So with all those benefits why would you not use XML? It is not as simple to password protect an XML file like it is a database because it's just a text file and also it's not ideal for large amounts of data. In those situations, it's better to use a database. So now that you understand some benefits of using XML data, why people use it and why you wouldn't use it, let's start learning about what XML looks like.
