How do we make XML faster? - Builder UK... I seem to remember debating this on the tube about 2 years ago with Tim Velvick (The Velvick Underground), and my argument was then, and is now, that it's not a software issue, it's a network protocol issue. XML itself is not slow, the transportation of it is. Therefore methods should be found to transport XML messages faster, probably at the network protocol level - like SSL, only for speeding up certain types of traffic, rather than encrypting them.
