XML can be used for Business-to-Business (B2B) applications and is also useful for Business-to-Consumer (B2C) applications. B2B applications use XML for data exchange in a "loosely coupled" heterogeneous environment. B2C applications use XML mainly to present data to different interfaces and technologies (e.g. Web and WAP). Most of today's data is stored in relational databases. Leading database vendors start to offer XML support directly in their latest products. The tutorial looks at the XML support offered by Oracle and Microsoft's SQL Server. A small B2B and B2C application is shown and we look at how relational structures fit into XML.

Roger Wirth has several years of experience in object-oriented analysis and design as well as in RAD (Rapid Application Development). His technical background comprises object-oriented technologies such as Java, and the conception and design of distributed systems with strong requirements in security.
Christoph Pletz started working in the IT business in 1993. As a trainer and consultant for Microsoft Server products and application architecture, Christoph specializes in SQL server, BizTalk Server and programming/design of Microsoft DNA and .NET frameworks.
Charly Schmid has a proven track record of 11 years in working with Oracle Databases and Tools as well as in teaching. During the years, he has been involved in several major Web projects, from the very beginning of the conception until implementation.
