The primary focus of the XML based messaging Protocol Working Group is to establish a framework for XML-based messaging systems. This framework encompasses the specification of a message envelope format and a method for data serialization. While the emphasis is on RPC applications, the framework adheres to the specified principles, catering not exclusively but primarily to RPC applications.

XML messaging represents a rapidly growing, dynamic area of IT, a situation that makes it exciting and tiresome at the same time. As B2B exchanges and other forms of inter-business electronic communication grow, XML messaging will be more widely deployed than ever.

What are XML messages?

XML Messaging format is designed to facilitate the exchange of structured information in the implementation of Web Services within computer networks. An XML interface serves as the foundational layer of a web services protocol stack, providing a fundamental messaging framework upon which web services can be constructed.

XML files are encoded in plaintext, allowing them to be easily opened and read in any text editor. To do so, right-click the XML file and select “Open With.” A list of programs to open the file will appear, and you can choose “Notepad” (Windows) or “TextEdit” (Mac) for clear readability.
