In the Real World—Why Learn XML?

It’s unlikely to be evident to casual or even power users of Access 2003 how the new XML features will make their life easier or more productive. This is especially true for users who don’t intend to export data or move their Access front ends to an intranet or the Internet. If you fall in that category, this and the remaining chapters of Part VI, “Publishing Data to Intranets and the Internet,” might not pique your interest.

If your current or intended career involves databases, however, a full understanding of the roles of XML, XSD, XSLT, and XPath will prove to be a critical skill. The amount of Web content delivered from databases will continue to increase in future, so HTML authors and Web page designers need to be conversant with—if not proficient in—XML and its derivatives. Document-literal XML Web services are XML documents that rely on an embedded schema to describe their payload. Thus, creating and consuming XML Web services requires XML and XSD skills.
