Last week, we presented a simple framework (named XMLCast) for distributing content to a variety of devices using XML. This application was built using Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology but we realize that many of you aren't using ASP (we aren't either). This article will present the concept of XML parsing using the PHP scripting language. In the coming weeks, we will follow this example up with an expansion of XMLCast using other tools such as XSLT and Cocoon.Recently, The Wireless Developer Network began offering our daily news in a variety of formats for people that wanted their news delivered in ways other than standard HTML. Among the formats we offer is Rich Site Summary (RSS), an XML format that splits up items (news headlines, in this case) into easily extractable elements, allowing other sites to grab our latest news headlines, format them as they wish, and list them on a page on their site, all with the convinence of XML data exchange.
