   RE: [xml-dev] XML - Disruptive Technology

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

"Doug Ransom
Interoperability Architect"

Which of these definitions would you use to describe your job:


1.  "Interoperability 
the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the 
information that has been exchanged [IEEE 90]."


2.  "Interoperability Definition

The ability of systems to provide services to and accept services from other 
systems and to use the services so exchanged to enable them to operate effectively 

ISO TC 204 Document N271
(Adoption Proposed by ITS America)"

3.  RFC 2026, section 4.1.2:

"For the purposes of this section, "interoperable" means to be functionally 
equivalent or interchangeable components of the system or process in which 
they are used."

How disruptive XML is can vary by selection because it also declares what 
one thinks XML to be (syntax | infoset | application language | implementation).
Walter gets the most bang for the buck on the left hand side of that choice. 
Microsoft, Sun and IBM make the most money on the right hand side.  A lot 
of us range from end to end, day to day.
