Re: XML and IP Phone

XML software is a misnomer. XML is a protocol, a way of encapsulating data so it can be read by different applications on different platforms.

Certain Cisco IP Phones have an XML browser application built into the firmware. This browser can accept XML-formatted data via HTTP and issue other HTTP commands, like HTTP PUT and GET.

Now, some companies, like Berbee, have delevloped "XML Applications" that use the Cisco IP Phone. These typically involve a web server from which the IP Phone can requested specific XML-formatted data which can then be displayed on the phone's LCD. Alternately, the web server can recieve XML formatted data that a user inputs into the phone which can be processed on the web server's platform. In either case, the "application" resides on a seperate server, not on the IP Phone, much as HTML resides on a remote web server and is not "installed" on the local computer.
