   RE: [xml-dev] XPath/XSLT 2.0 concerns

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yep.  I know all of that.  So imagine my surprise 
when I saw that page from a current DevCon.  Our 
guess was that shipping dates had something to 
do with it, but I am surprised that the VFP 
team is introducing XDR as a "new" feature.

Any idea when or if the VFP team will catch up 
to the corporate plan?  It would save lots of us 
a lot of monkey work.  I realize VFP is not a 
front runner product, but MS has yet to field 
a VS/VB solution that is nearly as powerful when 
it comes to build relational clients.  VizFox is 
a very powerful language for that.


From: Dare Obasanjo [mailto:dareo@microsoft.com]

XDR is a legacy technology in the same manner the XSL stylesheets that
use the "http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl"; namespace are. This doesn't mean
it isn't used or supported within various Microsoft products however we
are more committed to W3C XML Schema language moving forward. Our lack
of plans for XDR have already been previously discussed on this list[0].
