   RE: [xml-dev] MS thinks HTTP Needs Replacing???

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Let's not nail Box without reading the article first.
Box makes points about long duration transactions, 
and the problems of two way pipes.   At the bottom, 
the article states: 

"And even though Microsoft is working on the problem too, Box did 
say that Microsoft is unlikely to succeed alone"

"Microsoft has some ideas (on how to break the independence 
on HTTP), IBM has some ideas, and others have ideas. We'll see," 
he said. But, he added, "if one vendor does it on their own, it will 
simply not be worth the trouble."

Don Box - champion of COM. Is it any wonder that HTTP is no longer
sufficient. Besides, it's not Microsoft proprietary.
