   RE: [xml-dev] SOAP, XSD, and HTTP

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yep.  And if they don't, vendors have to maintain all 
of the stuff they sell or until they can convince the
buyer to change.  That is the danger and penalty for 
implementing too far ahead of a spec being published. 
Again, count the penguins.

MSXML Core Services still support XDR and that will make it 
a royal pain to get the locals to move on as long as 
they believe it is doing what they need.  It really 
gets expensive maintaining an "evil empire" because 
nobody trusts anybody, therefore, we have to pay for 
all the mistrustful, opportunistic solutions everyday 
whether we need them or not.

And everyone in business knows this.

Want to know why I'm cheery about this?  Because these Web Services 
people aren't dumb, and we went to them and said "uh, your stuff doesn't 
play well with the Web" (pointing to among other things Paul's article) 
and they said "OK we'll fix it."

This is the way things are supposed to work. -Tim
