- Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Adam Bosworth Article - what does "direct access" mean?
I thought he meant that there is an impedance mismatch between object oriented programming language constructs and syntax with that of XML. This seems fairly obvious from his code sample which reads
XML x = getxml("somewhere");
PERatio = x.price/( x.revenues -
versus using SAX and DOM. The question is whether he thinks object serialization to XML and vice versa is all that is needed or whether more significant alterations to programming languages are needed. Based on his previous articles about this he seems to clearly be leaning towards the latter.

Subject: [xml-dev] Adam Bosworth Article - what does "direct access" mean?
Article entitiled "Speaking XML" by Adam Bosworth:
I'm intrigued by "it is becoming increasingly necessary for developers to
directly access and
manipulate XML documents."
My reading of the article suggests that "direct access" here means "lets
make the XML a direct
serialization syntax for objects":
Customer c = new Customer ("Customer.xml")
If this is the line of thought I'm fairly squarely against it for more
reasons than I have time
to articulate at the moment. Just looking for opinions on my interpretation at
