Concise Description of Xaml Language & Xaml Formats
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.
