XML Online

In previous chapters we experimented with a quiz game. Its database is expressed in XML, and we have learned a variety of ways to dissect the data and display it to the user. The actual data is stored on the server as a simple XML file, which is accessed as a whole and selected from by the Flash application.

Data storage in XML files is far more sophisticated and robust than storage in simple text files. It is even, in some real senses, an improvement over sophisticated solutions like Generator and Cold Fusion. Unlike those proprietary, closed technologies, an XML service is simple, public, and open. A wide variety of tools can operate on the data from many different perspectives.
