Several schema systems exist to aid in the definition of XML-based languages, while programmers have developed many application programming interfaces (APIs) to aid the processing of XML data. XML-based formats have become the default for many office-productivity tools, including Microsoft Office (Office Open XML), Open and Libre Office (Open Document), and Apple's i Work. Apple has an implementation of a registry based on XML.
XML has also provided the base language for communication protocols such as XMPP. XML has come into common use for the interchange of data over the Internet.
This will involve some XML processing, for example, applying various XML operations (converting, parsing, validating, transforming and publishing XML) on several data sources.
The order report XML application is displayed here: The steps involved in creating this XML application include: The easiest way to build this XML application is to use Stylus Studio, and to follow along with this tutorial, we recommend downloading the free trial version of Stylus Studio which includes this sample application including all files in the example project.

We said earlier that Stylus Studio's XML document generator always generates well-formed and valid XML files - but don't take our word for it, see for yourself.
The goal of this chapter is to answer the following questions: Along the way, we will study the design of existing corpora, the typical workflow for creating a corpus, and the lifecycle of corpus.
Right-click, and then select "View Sample XML" from the short-cut menu, as illustrated here: Stylus Studio will automatically generate a sample XML document corresponding to the XML element that you have selected, allowing you to create complete XML documents or XML document fragments according to your selection.
Stylus Studio allows you to browse the generated sample XML document if you are happy with the result, click on the "open as a new document" button and Stylus Studio will launch a new XML document with the contents of the generated XML file.
For example: Now how do you get the entire XML application to work as one integrated program?
In computing, Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a markup language that defines a set of rules for encoding documents in a format that is both human-readable and machine-readable.
