Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML)

Collaborative Application Markup Language, or CAML for short, is an XML-based language that SharePoint uses for queries, configuration, and rendering of data in addition to other uses. CAML has some similiarities to SQL in function.

CAML has several subsets, called schemas, that are used for different tasks. For example the View schema is used for defining visual rendering of data while the Query schema is used for extracting data.
