In my job, i am using some XML.. but mainly for the purpose of data transfer and transformation..... anyone of u using things like XPATH, XPOINTERS, XML Data Binding at all? if u did use those advance XML feature, please tell me what are u using them on... I have a feeling that most of us didn't utilize the full power of XML yet.... and to utilize full power of XML, the developer time would be at least double.. of course, the outcome product would be very flexible and customizeable... any thought??
I agree with you at our work also we use XML in a limited manner (for data transfer, data formatting and data exchange). The full potential of XML technology is not utilized. I will say we are using may be 20% of it's potential. I would laso be interested in knowing if someone is using advanced features. Thanks,
Some of the things we do include - WebServices Dynamic XML generation XSL with taglibs such as xsp XML data repository for dictionary information XML based data cache for performance Pretty soon we'll be looking at XML databinding and XML based messaging although we do exchange message "substance" as XML right now. We're currently evaluating Sun's new JAXPack that has all the goodies. Hope that helps! ------------------ Ajith Kallambella M. Sun Certified Programmer for the Java�2 Platform.

I'm moving this discussion to the XML forum for the benefit of a broader audience.
hi,guys: I need few words about how to use XML to transfer data, what's the steps and which software is required. I learn XML to create web page for my project. The idea is I use java web server to query database then create XML format string, and then pass them with XSL. During this project, I'm trying the prowerful feature of XML. The truth is, later, I figure out Netscape do not like IE, which has embed XML parser, after that I have to transform XML into HTML on server side. This thing is too bad, also the configuration of making XML transform (Xalan) work almost kill me. Anyway, I still believe those powerful features of XML like said in 'XML Bible'...., just want to see them. My problem is I know how to create XML, but I don't know how to use it and which tools I need. Thanks.
