   RE: [xml-dev] How does XML work with Linux

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

And because all XML files are text files (despite the best efforts of some
people to change that) they're particularly portable between operating

One of my favorite things about my Linux-based Sharp Zaurus PDA is that XML
is its native format for its address book, calendar app, etc. I can put it
in its cradle, ftp the files to a Windows machine, and do anything with them
that I'd do with any other XML file.

Think of XML as a format for data. Other data formats include ASCII,
HTML, Adobe PDF, JPEG, MP3 audio and so on.
If we substitute 'JPEG' for 'XML', your question becomes "How does JPEG work
with Linux?"

If you take a digital photo, for example, there's nothing you do to the JPEG
iamge to make it "work with Linux". Ditto when you create an XML doc.

< Do you need a separate server?

Whether or not you need separate servers is usually a function of
requirements such as performance.
