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.
