As a developer who has used both Java and XML in projects, I would like to hear anyone's thoughts and why they think that using XML to store and render data is better than other mechanisms, such as hashtables.
I have heard arguments for and against XML for data rendering. The pro arguments centre around the flexibility and added functionality that using XML related APIs gives the developer. The negative arguments stem from the fact that using XML is very CPU intensive.
(BTW, I will be very very happy if and when I receive the XML book :^) )
