When goinf with XML ????

P: n/a
Dear all,

I am building a windows application with data stored in a
database. In many place XML is place in this .NET
environement.

I kow that with XML you can format your data according
your own tags.

But when storing data in XML format is needed and when it
i absolutly useless.

I mean if I have only an windows application should I go
for XML formatting or is it only dedicated for web
application?

Thnaks to help me clarifying the difference

Storing tree structure information is the XML features I like most.
I have made a tiny application which stores bookmark.
In storing and loading the information, I can simply use the Serialize and
Deserialize method of the XMLSerializer class.
I don't need to query multiple tables.

I will emphasis to use it when the data is a tree structure. It is because
you can edit the data easier.
XML is not the only technical issue in XML technology, try to include XML
Schema and XSLT to assist deciding the correct technology you 'll use.
It is because for non tree-structural data, there are many factors to decide
using database or windows form.
If you think your current application is accpetable, there is no reason to
change to XML, as changing the that is quite expensive.
But if you forecast you gain a lots from XML, of course, you should use it.

Actually I am not an XML Expert, I can't help much. But I think when you are
learning and using XML, you will know the situation when to use it.
If you are still in confusion, I will recommend you to try XML more.
