Learning XML Part I (Nicky Tests Software)

On April 6, 2013, in Syndicated, by Association for Software Testing

What exactly is XML?

XML is eXtensible Markup Language.

What’s it used for?

To transport information and send data. For example: Between 2 systems. XML is designed in such a way that XML enables 2 systems to ‘talk’ to each other. An important distinction to note between XML and HTML is that whilst XML is used to transport information and send data; HTML is used to display information. There are not really pre-defined rules regarding tags. So if you want to send information on, say, someone’s favourite chocolate- you could type in:

<chocolate> Butterfinger </Chocolate>

Why do I want to learn XML?

I’d love to explore of the possibility of getting into Integration Testing later in the future.
