> Hi There,
> I have been pondering the following question. It is an easy one (perhaps
> irrelevant), but has been bothering me -
> XML is considered to be an excellent way of allowing two
> applications/platforms to be able to share data in a common format. My
> question is, what are going to be the accepted ways of interfacing to this
> common format, i.e., If I were to develop an application that could
> receive/deliver requests in XML Format, how exactly would it
> the XML Data?
> I can think of,
> Flat Files. An Application generates an XML File which is sent to the
> another application to read and parse.
> Over HTTP. An application will generate an XML stream that will be passed
> via HTTP to a listening application. How exactly would this work -
> specifically in Java? Is there a standard way of opening up an HTTP
> connection and piping down the XML? Unfortunately I am not familiar with
> java.net.* classes.
> Through some specified API call. One application would call a pre-defined
> method on another application using COM, DCOM, RMI etc
