What’s XML?

An eXtensible Markup Language (XML) file is a general purpose markup language file with a set of rules for encoding documents in machine-readable form.

XML is a subset of Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML).

The primary purpose of XML is to facilitate the sharing of data across different systems.

The upload process will parse and process the XML file to load agreement lines and its associated attributes provided that the XML file conform to the XML DTD.

What’s CIF or cXML?

A Catalog Interchange Format (CIF) file is a comma-separated text file.

A commerce eXtensible Markup Language (cXML) .xml file is based on the XML language.

Put simply, cXML stands for ‘Commercial Extensible Mark-up Language’ and it is basically a solution that allows different systems to ‘talk’ to eachother in the simplest and most efficient way possible. It is simply the connection type being used between the e-procurement system and the suppliers website.

Oracle is currently only support cXML up to version 1.1.007
