BML file extension - Binary Markup Language file

What is bml file? How to open bml files?

File type specification:

Source code and script file type icon Source code and script file type

The bml file extension is used for files written in the Binary Markup Language. BML employs a binary encoding scheme to produce an XML Information Set compliant binary version of XML fragments or documents containing the same information as the original. BML was originally developed as an OpenEbXML project.

The main advantage to the binary stream representation is increased perfomance. File sizes are somewhat smaller, with more significant size decreases planned for the next release. Using the Document Object Model (DOM) -like BML tree representation, Multipart Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (Multipart MIME) Electronic Business XML (ebXML) messages may be stored and manipulated. The same Application Programming Interface (API) handles textual XML and binary attachments.

BML's development goals include support of all XML Schema datatypes, namespace support, DOM conversion and compatibility with Java 2 Micro Edition Connected Limited Device Configuration (CLDC) 1.0.
