I have a lot about XML and how it can be used in integrating diverse application like a ASP application speaking to a Java appication via XML
The concrete example I have an existing Web application written using Oracle App Server. I need to separate the presentation layer and code it within ASP and still communicate with Oracle App Server for business layer and data layer. I have assumed that XML can assist me in solving my problem.
What I am after is some links, egs, experiences, any info as to how I can use simple XML not SOAP to integrate two diverse applications.

XML in and of itself probably won't be able to do much for you. SOAP is an application of XML. SOAP is an XML based messaging framework specifically designed for exchanging formatted data across the Internet. It can be used to send request/response or entire XML documents. It is also completely platform independent and language neutral. It's fairly easy to set up and use. What is it about SOAP that you do not like or are trying to avoid?
I agree. Here's the link:
