Dare helps sort out when to use xml and let’ us, by elimination, know when NOT to – when it is overkill or just not useful. This is good guidance for many. We so often learn HOW to use all of the many technologies at our disposal and are left to figure out on our own WHEN to use them. Many people don’t ever even question the “when”. This blog post is a pre-cursor to Dare’s next XML column in MSDN Magazine. This isn’t new. He actually wrote about this in his blog a year ago, but has now expanded on that post for his column.
This feeds into the recent convesation about the use of WSE2, web services (xml services William prefers to call them) in apps where you own both ends of the pipe.
