What is XML (eXtensible Markup Language)?

XML, or Extensible Markup Language, is a versatile and human-readable markup language used for structuring and organizing data in a way that is both machine-readable and platform-independent. It consists of tags enclosed in angle brackets, similar to HTML, and is primarily employed for representing and exchanging structured information over the internet.

XML's flexibility allows users to define their own custom tags and document structures, making it suitable for a wide range of applications, such as data interchange, configuration files, web services, and more. XML plays a crucial role in enabling data interoperability and communication between diverse systems and platforms, facilitating the exchange of information in a structured and standardized manner.
