Concise Description of Xaml Language & Xaml Formats

March 21, 2007

I am doing some writing for work, and I’m yet again having to come up with a description of XAML – the language.  Remember, there are Xaml Formats such as WPF/XAML, WPFe/XAML, WF/XAML (workflow foundation), & XPS/XAML.  The Xaml Language is the common set of rules which those Xaml Formats all uphold.


My latest take

  • Xaml Format: a set of specific elements, usually extensible, used to declaratively model a system.
  • Xaml Langauge: a set of rules built on XML’s strengths to provide a tool friendly, while still human-readable, file format which describes trees of objects from domain-specific class libraries.
