   Re: [xml-dev] Rules and Scalable Schemas and Context Management

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Now you are delving into dark incantations and heavy incense away
in the lower reaches away from the main concourse of the nave and altar.

Strange men in hooded cloaks have been muttering about tools that can
read in existing XSD schema and write out CAM templates that then you
add some rules to and presto - perfect honeyed-meade - 70% proof.

Intoxicating stuff - be careful how you use it and who you give it to.

Everyone wants a simple instant fix that leverages their existing
investment and efforts - it maybe a lot closer than they realize.
