Vb Classic Support For Xml Processing

IwannaLearnXml, otherwise known as ExtensibleMarkupLanguage (XML) and how it relates to VbClassic.

(VisualBasicDotNet has better XML features such as continued support from Microsoft, but people still have to work with legacy programs.)


Resources for XML that is relevant to VbClassic developers

Starter simple set of tiny VbClassic projects using MSXML3 at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/xmlsdk/html/dom_hdi_vb.asp

XML and Visual Basic at http://www.xml.com/lpt/a/2000/07/12/vbasic/vb_and_xml.html Turn Com objects into Web Services article from the VSM archive at http://www.ftponline.com/vsm/2002_09_14th/magazine/features/mercuri/default_pf.aspx

Example of setting up Xml Soap client-server at http://www.developerfusion.com/scripts/print.aspx?id=24 Sample chapter from Professional VB6 XML book, on Xpath/XSLT, and comparison with CSS related approach at http://xmlwriter.net/sample_chapters/Professional_VB6_XML/contents.shtml


Is it possible that ObjectOrientedProgrammingInVbClassic will expire sooner than VbClassicSupportForXmlProcessing, due to the perceived trend of increased focus on interfacing applications and services, instead of building them?

WhatIsXmlAnyway? Are there BenefitsOfXml? Is it good for a XmlBasedWiki?

I do not know IT marketing people see Xml the way I feel about it, a possible case of PrematureGeneralization.

I do know once I have spent years on this topic I think you should do so as well.
