Ok. That's the MID approach, tried, tested, shown to
work but was universally hated by C and C++ programmers
who said, "Why bother?" And I don't recognize the
stylesheet examples at all. Huh?
Exactly how would o:XML provide XML to a direct access model?
From: Martin Klang [mailto:email@example.com]
XSLT provides, for XML, unparallelled integration with the data model, or
'direct access' possibilities.
unfortunately it is not a programming paradigm that many, what was the
term, weenie programmers (?) are comfortable with. also xsl is highly
focused on a particular type of problem - transformations.
this was the reason for creating o:XML, which aims to be an orthogonal
technology to XSLT by providing a procedural, object-oriented language
with 'direct' XML access, geared at XML generation and processing.
since, as Bosworth apparently thinks (quote from previous mail),
"it is becoming increasingly necessary for developers to directly access
and manipulate XML documents."
and, at least on the planet i'm on, he's not wrong.
