   RE: [xml-dev] Competing Specifications - A Good or Bad Thing?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I can't think of any examples either that don't 
blow something up or sink something except two 
teen-agers and a baby.

Simplicity and complexity are perceived qualities, 
not real without a rule, say related to dependency, 
frequency, occurrence and depth.  Is an unfactored equation 
complex or simple?  Is it simpler when factored?  Why? 
If a complex operation has a simple interface, is the 
operation simple or complex?

I ask because once again, surface simplicity has an 
attraction that can lead one to the wrong solution. 
That's as uneliptical as I can say it.

So what of aspect-oriented programming?

And sometimes 2 complex things in combination result in something

(It sounded good, though I wish I had a good concrete example...)
