Re: [xml-dev] CATALOGs versus RDDL

/ Rick Jelliffe <ricko@allette.com.au> was heard to say:
| I am interested in any opinion in how to integrate CATALOGs and RDDL
| in the same system.  Sun has Norm Walsh's Jar, and rddl.org has
| Jonathon Bordon's Jar.

I've thought about this more than once. My current position is that
catalog resolution comes first. If what you get back after resolution
is an RDDL document, you use that.

I was interested in integrating RDDL into the catalog classes, but the
problem is that the resolvers (URI and entity) don't know what *kind* of
thing they're supposed to be getting, they just have identifiers.

                                        Be seeing you,
