Create an XML Request in “c” for server communication.

XML request in server communication

We use XML to carry data between server and client. XML simplifies the data transportation and carry data in plain text format which is readable by both human and machine. It is the biggest reason to provide a software and hardware independent way of transporting, storing, and sharing data. This feature of XML gives the reason to send the request in XML format in server communication.

In case of POS (point of sale), we generally send the Request in XML, JSON or ISO bitmap format to communicate with payment gateway or middle-ware server. A lot of API available in “C” to create XML or bitmap request for server communication.
In this article, I will describe a simple project to create a XML request for server communication.

Note:  XML language has no predefined tag. It provides flexibility to give any name to your XML tag.
