XML Web Service Development
What is XML? XML stands for extensible markup Language, that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable. It is a textual data format with strong support via Unicode for the languages of the world, so that data can be transferred easily with simplicity. Due to this simplicity, XML is widely used for arbitrary data structures like web services and acts as a communication channel between cross-platform applications. Due to its simple yet stable & scalable structure, it is used in application programming interface, RSS feeds, Atoms; either way these all are different formats of a communication channel.
There are some set of rules defined to develop an XML document so that a Human & machine can read the document & interpret them easily. With the help of such rules & properties of XML-like tags, element’s attribute etc. developer can define their self-descriptive data to transport. As we mentioned, working with Mobile application or cross-platform applications requires an expertise in XML development. To communicate with a remote server or between two different cross-platform application XML can be propagated through the protocols like SOAP or XML-RPC. These days JSON-RPC is also used widely as an alternative to XML-RPC protocol.
Working with XML does not include only XML development , the expertise is proven when issues like character validation, encoding detection, escaping, proper commenting are being taken care. We, the team of ESPL have XML experts, who can develop a great application which requires a niche XML experience. Working with XML applications during these years our experts has been through various XML forms and techniques like pull parsing, Simple APIs for XML (SAX), Document Object modeling, Data binding for XML etc.
