   RE: [xml-dev] XML-aware programming language?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Developers who prefer XSLT to C#/Java/Perl/PHP/Python/Javascript are in the minority and at best are a niche market.
There is nothing more satisfying that having someone take a shot at you, and miss.

And this is also why many of my users would rather stick with the language
they are doing most of the application development with (i.e. XSLT) and
regard the prospect of writing in [unfamiliar] low-level languages like Java
with horror.

(Dammit, they are even trying to access their relational databases directly
from XSLT, using a library I wrote one afternoon as a demo...)
