   RE: [xml-dev] W3C Schema: Resistance is Futile, says Don Box

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Me too.  The whole Borg quote and Killer App thing 
comes off as insecurity though.  Apps need what apps 
need and as long as we stick to the requirements, it 
isn't too hard to sort out the solutions.  It is deuce 
hard when offered as competitors instead of solutions 
because of the WorldWideWobbler phenomenon.

Because MS goes long on the "it must be easy" position, 
I expect them to offer RELAX support.   As with any 
option, programmers have to learn what is easy vs 
automatic and therefore, when something that is easy 
is also not applicable to the task at hand.

But that's all the original Don Box quote said -- XML Schema is here
to stay because SOAP needs it.  I agree.  End of story.
