I'm sure there are many people who have been through the same experience as myself using xml as a transport format:

  1. Observe the popularity of XML and the supporting libraries in the language you are working in.
  2. Implement a transport layer using XML to parse messages/data etc.
  3. Realise that your server/application is now over ten times slower than it was before.
  4. Remove XML and replace with something far simpler, far less verbose and vitally far /quicker to parse/.
  5. Curse XML for wasting your bloody time and never let it darken your door again.
