Building Distributed Applications with XML
This session introduces the concepts of building applications that share data
and logic across the Web using HTTP and XML as the messaging mechanism. This
session reviews the benefits of using XML for data representation and then
describes examples of how you can use XML in distributed Web applications to
communicate between client and server sides. The focus is on extending
existing applications by using the Web and XML to extend existing
functionality onto the Web. Rick will also introduce some powerful tools that
simplify XML generation.
Several examples will be shown on how to use XML on the different clients
with data provided from the server. Visual FoxPro and Internet Explorer will
be used to demonstrate, but the concepts can be applied to any programming
language/environment that supports an XML parser and the ability to access
the HTTP protocol to communicate with a Web server.
