Celebrating 10 Years of XML Volume 45, Number 2, 2006 Click to enlarge
SJ 45-2
The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is an open standard for creating markup languages that describe the structure of data. Since work began on XML 10 years ago, its uses have proliferated at a rapid pace, making it the predominant mechanism for electronic data interchange between information systems. An introductory paper in this issue of the Journal puts the XML phenomenon in its technical and cultural contexts. Then, 12 additional papers address a range of XML-related topics: core XML technologies, connecting business to data, connecting data to applications, mapping technologies, and connecting business to business with Web services.
