   RE: [xml-dev] Just Can't Get No REST

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I can control what I write and publish from Fox and FP 
(although I won't use FP even with a gun to my head). 
I can't control a centralized library of references 
who's owners claim they won't change the outcomes 
of their technologies (no human intervention) but 
recent events prove they will.  Type in "go to hell" 
in the search engine and see where it points now.

The point is simple:  sources have to be vetted.  
A lot of the language in the contracts that have 
logie requirements are based on the use of provable 
and testable procedures to do that plus the procedures 
for how to report discovered errors.  Eg, if it can 
be gamed, a means to detect it and report is must 
be guaranteed and if it cannot be guaranteed, the 
reliability numbers for that source are lowered 
accordingly.  Purchase by reliability numbers.

Google and XML alone are not up to the requirements 
of web services.  It's misleading to publish articles 
claiming they are.  Someone has to work harder to 
make web services or REST be up to that task; therefore, 
Just Can't Get No Rest.

I don't know what point you're trying to make so I'll just drop out. 
I'll just say that it is a simple error of fact to claim that it is 
easier to game Google than to write an RPC that games a UDDI repository. 
  Fire up Visual Foxpro and FrontPage and try it.
