No - it is not what it is about. powerExt provides a lot more tools beyond just the APIs for XML creation and that is where PXXMLRPGCM comes from. XMLi is "just" a set of routines for XML creation.

I thought that PXXMLRPGCM was only part of the paid for version - guess not.

Both powerExt and XMLi allow for an API approach to building the XML
strings. You basically call the API for each entry you want to output.

In Chapter 5 of the RPG Modernization Redbook
(http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg248185.html
<http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg248185.html>) I wrote an example of
using each of these options - including CGIDEV2. So if you >>look at that
you'll get a very direct comparison between the CGIDEV2 approach you are
familiar with and the other two options you are considering.

powerext and XMLi are very similar in approach - it is mostly just a
question of personal preference. Personally (sorry Henrik) I have a slight
preference for XMLi mostly because I find its approach to specifying
attributes to be more obvious than the way it >>is done in powerExt.
