   Re: [xml-dev] Jim Gray article on Next Generation Databases

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Perhaps I'm reading too much into this, but in Gray's article, the 
vision does not seem to include a middle tier. The database becomes the 
center of the universe, and pretty much everything we associate with the 
middle tier becomes part of the database. The database also takes on 
some of the functionality traditionally associated with an operating system.

How likely is this? Do users want that level of centralization?
