   RE: [xml-dev] Partyin' like it's 1999

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It's hard to say from here, Joe.  You probably know more 
about that than I do.  The reason I am coming to DC is 
to look around at work being done in that space and try 
to assess how much of it and which bits we (IPS) should 
be involved in.  GJXDM is obvious and we have a fellow 
following that.  

I have to believe that our experience from days of yore 
still applies and that lessons learned since about keeping 
this simple and affordable yet highly reliable (given 
the apps we build) are top priorities.  Last week, a 
fellow came to my office who had recently discovered 
the Draconian Parse rule and was whining about that 
as if all of our apps would suddenly fall down.  That 
tells me that the levels of complex issues that come 
from building modular applications based on namespaces 
with their bag of 'must understand the way it works' 
features may still be beyond the depth of too many of 
the customers.   It is all too easy for those attending 
F2Fs and daily grinding the lists to believe this stuff 
is all a done deal, when really, particularly given the 
SHARE concepts, we are just getting started.

So yes, likely they are.  But again, wishing and having 
are very different things.  At least like most here, 
I am hopefully some number of years smarter than when 
I worked the CALS projects.

Would you say that there are multiple communities within the US federal
government that *are* very interested?
