   Re: [xml-dev] Can XML Schemas do this?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

There is always an XML 1.0 representation for
ConciseXML.  Here is Water Type and Water
Contract in XML 1.0:

  <field key="person"/>
  <field key="name"> required string </field>
  <field key="age"> optional integer </field>
  <field key="birth"> optional datetime </field>
  <field key="_precond">
    <defmethod> <not age.<is optional/>.
                             <and birth.<is optional/> />

Equivalent in ConciseXML:
<defclass person
   _precond=<defmethod> <not age.<is optional/>.
                             <and birth.<is optional/> />

I don't know how well it translates into English, but in French we
a metaphor saying that this is throwing the baby away with the water
its bath...

There is no reason to switch to a different markup language just
one of the schema languages of XML is weak!
