Join Joe Marini for an in-depth discussion in this video Advantages and drawbacks of XML, part of XML Essential Training.
- [Facilitator] Just like any other technology,…XML has its advantages and drawbacks.…XML has several advantages.…First, XML keeps content separate from presentation.…You can take the data that your application uses…and store it separately from how it's presented to users.…That way, regardless of what kind of presentation medium…you're using, whether it's mobile or desktop or print media,…you can just simply flow the data into various layouts,…and you can maintain a good separation between…the content from how it's presented.…XML is also an open format that can be read…by many applications, and many applications today…have also the ability to output XML, like Microsoft Office.…
So, because it's an open format, you can store your data…in a way that can be read by many different applications,…even those that haven't been written yet.…XML can be used on both the client and the server,…because remember, it's just a data format.…Today's modern browsers, like Firefox, Chrome,…Edge, Safari, can work with XML data.…
