   ConciseXML arguments

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Out of the 50 email messages about
ConciseXML, almost all of the comments
have been of the sort:
"but ConciseXML is not XML 1.0!".
Although this is a true statement,
how about any comments on the two
key problems that ConciseXML fixes that
are reoccuring issues across the industry.
1. XML 1.0 is verbose and is not suitable
   for many applications that people would
   like to use it for.  People invent new
   syntax all the time to avoid XML 1.0.
   For example, XPATH, XQuery, string
   encodings, CSV data, etc.
2. There is not a single way in XML 1.0 to
   represent data fields that have a key and value
   where the key can be any type and the value
   can be any type.
