Now a day’s distributed computing has become a common phenomenon. As the system designed from the bottom up with networking in mind, distributed computing makes it very easy for computers to cooperate and today, scientific world is nourishing the benefits provided by distributing computing under the broad umbrella of client server architecture. Information is requested and used at various distant physical or logical locations as per the requirement by the users. This is very unlikely that all the engaged users use the same computing environment. XML (Extensive Markup Language) technology has emerged as an efficient medium for information transfer and attempting to offer similar kind of information environment up to an extent by using its potential property called, interoperability. Interoperability is a kind of ability of software and hardware on different machines from different vendors to share data. In this paper we employ a few criteria to evaluate interoperability of XML in heterogeneous distributed computing environment.
