Forgive me for the generic question, I'm to the point of betting the bank on
XML, and I'm looking for a pat on the back, or a voice of warning....
We are starting from scratch on our next generation product, from what I've
read and seen - xml seems to fit the bill (Content Management, mixed with
WIDL RPC functionality seems right up our alley). I'm looking hard at ODBMS
systems and laying out the DB via xml (storing xlm directly). We have a
wealth of in-house Java and COM/DCOM experience, but none with ODBMS or XML.
Do I understand it correctly that I at an item level, I can:
1. name it (URI)?
a. possible supply some security to it?
2. revision it?
3. meta-data it?
a. can meta-data have meta-data?
Would I be foolish to base my whole object system storage on xml, or on
ODBMS for that matter? Are they cooked, are they ready for real world apps?
Once again, I'm sorry for the generic question, I have read the FAQ's, the
ODBMS webpages, several books etc. I'm looking for the advice of those in
the trenches - Is it safe to make XML the foundation of my new product?
Should I grab a shovel, and jump in the trenches with you, or is this a deep
Thanks in advance, for all who might reply.
