   Re: [xml-dev] Who can implement W3C XML Schema ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I would like to join the discussion again.

I have talked to developers and what I have heard was
that their is at least one thing, where XML Schemas/ta are
better than Relax NG - when you do deserialization/serialization
of objects into SOAP messages.

The only words I can hear during the discussion are "developers",
"implementations", "implement" ... ?

But what about the users, who want to create just
documents, data files, which will be never represented
as Java/C#/C++ or whatever objects?

Haven't you forgotten us?

Users, for whom the DTD is not sufficient (multiple namespaces,
datatypes) and XML Schema is _so_ complex to learn!

Users, who DO not have time to dive in the XML Schema specification
for months and think in the terms of 
because they have other work to do besides that.

I have read the Relax NG specification carefully, gone
through the examples and now I can write a schema in
a moment. It's so easy and yet powerful!

And for the documents it's BETTER!

Let the XML Schema live in the space of SOAP/WSDL/..,
but give us a choice!

If not, expect far more stupid questions, than mine.

Is XML Schema a technology for average XML users, or just
for an elite?

However, I was at work where my machine is configured to allow me access to W3C member-only lists transparently and didn't realize that although the link was provided on a public page it led to a members-only page.
