   x++: XML-Based Object Oriented Programming Language

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I have invented a full object oriented programming language whose syntax is 
based on XML 1.0.  The name of the language is x++.  x++ is open sourced 
under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL).  The x++ site contains 
documentation on x++ including the lexicon, the source code and executables 
for the implementations of the x++ interpreter.

The x++ site is at:

The x++ site (with beta 0.1) went live on June 14th 2002 with a stand alone 
x++ interpreter called XppTester.exe.  Since the x++ site went live there 
have been many feedback e-mails.  Many programmers have received the news of 
x++ will plenty of enthusiasm.  This feedback has also prompted a few 
enhancements to the syntax of x++.  These have occasioned the release of x++ 
beta 0.2.  Details of beta 0.2 changes can be seen on the x++ site.

In addition to the syntax changes, x++ beta 0.2 also comes with a second 
implementation of the x++ interpreter: the XppEngFilt.dll ISAPI filter.  
XppEngFilt supports x++ scripting on web servers.  This allows x++ programs 
to be embedded into HTML or XML files or simply stand alone x++ files and 
processed on the web server before the HTTP response is sent to the web 

There is an article on x++ beta 0.2 explaining important issues, such as the 
need for XML encapsulation and an independent XML tier.  The article can be 
found at:

Work that is already underway includes the development of an x++ IDE.  This 
IDE will dramatically speed up the writing of x++ programs.  Some people 
have mentioned the verbose nature of XML as an obstacle for any XML based 
language (as x++ is).  The x++ IDE which is nearing beta release solves this 
problem extremely well.

Please feel free to browse the x++ site and send me your feedback.  I 
appreciate your time.  E-mail me at Kimanzi_Mati@hotmail.com.
