About XML and XML schema

XML is an essential element in most Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs), supporting, for example, related language construct such as the Web services Description Language (WSDL) model for describing Web services and the Atom syndication format for HTTP feed sharing, that enable improved interoperability versus earlier binary distributed object formats.
