Re: XMLLight - What do you think?

Hi again Vadim,

Well, I just wrote my anwser to SUN's XML mailing list. But I have to
admit that I think neither Announcements nor Cross-Postings are very
apprechiated on XML-Dev.



P.S.: For the folks who are interested, here my reply from SUN's XML


Hi Vadim,

Why do you post this in this anonymous manner? Why no name below the
mail? Why the hotmail account? Why not your normal mail address
mailto:vadim@softcorporation.com ?

Marketing as usual, ha? (I personaly know how hard it is to get some
hits on your page. My own is up now for couple of month and some 300
guys only clicked it...)

Never mind. Announcement are not forbidden in this mailing list (as far
as I know).                                                         <<
see above >>

If you like to hear my humble opinion, take a seat.
Everyone who reads the "Limitation" section on the project page, knows
what XMLLight is good for... (Maybe it can be used in some fields
as Applets or so.)

I think the API is worse than DOM (what I personally don't like). It
seems to me that all 17 (or so) DOM interfaces are mingled up in one
class (com.softcorporation.xmllight.Element).

If your programming changed by it, I don't know if it changed for good.
DOM s not very object-orientated as you cannot add functionality to the
nodes/elements/data. I don't see any advantage for XMLLight there.

And btw. I don't trust implementations consisting of one single class
(not even inner classes) to be good programming style. Java is an
object-orientate language, so use the advantages of it!

Vadim, sorry for the bad critics, but you asked for it.
May the source be with you!
