Some of you might be interested in an early draft
document on the use of XML in enterprise information


This is a rather high level (read "abstract") overview
of a large topic and is still very rough and ready
(well, rough anyway). Some sections of it are little
more than place holders. The section on exchange is
especially undeveloped, i think in part due to the fact
that this area of exchange and XML is still very much
in flux.

The document gives few if any answers but asks a lot of

There are many gaps in the content reflecting gaps in
my understanding. No doubt some of what i've written
also reveals gaps in my understanding.

I would be glad to have any feedback, ideas or contributions.
All contributions will of course be acknowledged. I would
also be happy to have references to related work.

This is one of a number of documents on the use of XML
i'm working on. The others are more concrete and cover
less ground in more detail. They also might elaborate
on some aspects of this document.

I would like to say that while i've been lurking all this
time, i've been very inspired, and more than a little awed,
by many of the discussions on xml-dev.

There are many people on this list who have at times made
me think more than is comfortable. Some of these people
are cited in this document, but others equally important
have not been because their influence is more subtle and
generalized rather than specific. There's also the fact that
i just haven't had time to re-read the xml-dev archives to
find some of the useful posts of these people.

Of course, nothing i say should be taken to represent DSTC,
heaven forbid.
