XML, XML, XML, XML. You can see it on hats and t-shirts, read about it on the cover of every
technical magazine on the planet, and hear it on the radio or the occasional Gregorian chant album. .
. . Well, maybe it hasn't gone quite that far yet, but don't be surprised if it does. XML, the
Extensible Markup Language, has seemed to take over every aspect of technical life, particularly in
the Java™ community. An application is no longer considered an enterprise-level product if XML
isn't being used somewhere.
