   XML and ConciseXML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

In case folks think I'm making this stuff up, I just got
an email from the InformIT newsletter that reaches about
1 million developers.

The featured article is called:
"Processing XML with Java: Reading XML"
"Reading an XML document is a complicated, error-prone operation.
Elliotte Rusty Harold discusses how to use an XML parser to read the
document for you."

Here's the URL:

The first XML document shown is the following:


In ConciseXML, it becomes the following:

Both forms are expressing the same thing, an
integer returned from a method call.

XML 1.0 took: 126 characters.
ConciseXML took: 5 characters.

Isn't there anyone out there who thinks it
is ridiculous to have a syntax that uses
126 characters to express an integer?
