hi reema,
ignore my ignorance :-)
i was just wondering about what u actually meant?
MS is using soap(based on xml??) for distributed access.
So i guess they w'd be representing an object in the form a xml document? but w'd defintely be serializing it in a binary form and sending it across the network? and build it up all over again on the other side of the network. I guess they w'dnt be using simple text to send the stuff back and forth across the network?
c'd this be an example of binary xml in the transport process?
Please clear my misconceptions.

Hi karthik,
I think u work on MS technologies.What i think is whatever u were saying is correct to some extent.We all know that when something is sent across a network,it is serialized.But i don't know if it is sent in binary format or not.Since if it is really sent in Binary format then why do people are developing Binary XMLs.One of the examples is WBXML and I have heard that some people are developing CXML also (i.e., Compiled XML)
Please correct me if i am wrong in any thing.
Thanks,
Reema
