Didier replies:
Gee. In this case it is obviously a waste of money from Sun to apply for a
patent since several systems published since 1999 or 2000 already do that.
If the US patent office grants a patent for this "Sun's invention", my next
step is to apply for a US patent about the respiratory system and charge a
license fee to everyone using "my invention" :-)), :-)) !!!! Maybe we should
suggest to Sun to obtain a patent for XML-Dev and the US congress since they
invented the world :-)) :-))!!!
