Chapter 2. XML Basics

XML is the basic building block of Web services. All the Web services technologies specified by the WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 are built on XML and the W3C XML Schema Language. This chapter covers the XML fundamentals you'll need to understand before learning about W3C XML Schema Language. Section 2.1 covers the basic XML syntax, including elements, attributes, and CDATA sections. If you've never worked with XML before, then this first section will give you a jump-start. Section 2.2 covers XML namespaces, which you must understand in order to learn about the W3C XML Schema Language. If you have not used XML namespaces before, even if you're already conversant with XML generally, you should read Section 2.2.
