*Provide interoperability between OpenEdge and another XML-enabled platform or application.
*Use XML data and XML Schema as a persistent storage mechanism between ABL sessions.
*Provide XML Schema from ABL for use in third-party tools.
*Simplify or replace existing ABL code that performs XML reads and writes on temp-tables and ProDataSets.
