XML and Java TM Technology Tackle Enterprise Application Integration
Description: Reprinted from Java World June 1999 I\'m happy to say that I\'ve returned from my brief sabbatical all in one piece. While I was away, I had the opportunity to work on an interesting e-commerce application. On that project, one of my responsibilities involved specifying the interface between the server and a bevy of external systems. One facet of that task involved defining the format of the messages to be exchanged.
