   RE: [xml-dev] XQuery types was Re: [xml-dev] Yet another plea for XUpdat

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Correct.  Now, can someone assert that having XML conform 
to one might make that problem

1. Easier
2. Harder
3. Go away.
4. None of the above.

Will I also have XSD versions for 
each one of the three with some slight overlaps? 
And for each edge system to be integrated, the 
same problem?

Ummm.... SOAP/RPC looks better and better.

And you've been unable to convince the backend vendors to conform to a
single type system?
