   RE: [xml-dev] XMLSchema for object programmers: was Announce: XML Schema

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Perhaps and time will tell.  But locally, I see 
XDR, not XSD and never UML.   But that is local. 
My guess is that experiences will vary a lot by 

People build these and believe they are building 
a standard when in most cases, they are just 
modeling their local system ambitiously.  Given 
tools and a need to exchange artifacts with 
known partners, a serialization of the local 
system is just fine.

Global exchange with blind partners is risky. 
It depends on what the TAG quaintly calls 
"social behaviour" and in a world of intensely 
competitive social entities, that is not a 
smart way to contract or design.

XML Schema won't supplant the UML any time soon. I suspect OO people who
need this sort of thing will move to the OMG's Model Driven Architecture
(http://www.omg.org/mda/) and XML Schema will settle at the level of a
serialization syntax.
