What is EXI?

  • EXI stands for Efficient XML Interchange. It is commonly known as "binary XML"

Benefits of EXI?

  • EXI avoids the bloatedness of text-formatted XML
  • Applications can generate EXI directly and can operate on EXI directly, without first converting to text-formatted XML
  • You can validate a binary-formatted XML document in the same way you validate a text-formatted XML document
