   RE: [xml-dev] Who blows the whistle on Microsoft? Time to stand up

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

XML was designed to free us from people just like us.

into a service-oriented architecture which means 
opening up for anyone to write a client to.  Smart 
developers will be figuring out how the policies 
of an enterprise type can be abstracted into rules 
for dynamically creating clients commensurate to 
the role of the user requesting a service to which

application be so engaging and productive for your
customers that they want to buy it.   

   Now if that doesn't clear up the confusion. I don't
know what does.

   Any comments?
