What is XML?

XML stands for Extensible Markup language which means you can extend XML based upon your needs. You can define custom tags like <books>, <orders> etc in XML easily as opposed to other mark-up language like HTML where you need to work with predefined tags e.g. <p> and you can not use user defined tag. Though structure of XML can be standardize by making use of DTD or XML Schema. XML is mostly used to transfer data from one system to another e.g. between client and server in enterprise applications.
