   RE: [xml-dev] End of the Web browser era? And an opportunity for SVG?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

That is pretty much what is done with so called smart clients.
For example, looking at .NET, you might want to go to that
tutorial site Pam listed and watch the first demo of the core
components.   That shows how the system.xml libraries are
applied in VB examples.   This is straight-up VB scripting and
nothing hard or mysterious.  
It's not the browser; it's the framework.   The HTML-centric
browser-dominant web is a historical accident.   It wasn't
necessary but was and remains a fine set of training wheels.
Otherwise, MACs had it right.

Our very own Sean McGrath has written:


Among the points he made:
A critical aspect of web services is that resources are separated from HTML and thus separated from reliance on traditional desktop browsers. As such services proliferate, so too will thick client applications that engage directly with the web services, by-passing HTML based user interfaces."

So where could we look for a thicker client for Web-services? Presumably XML-based.
