   RE: [xml-dev] Call for Participation: W3C Workshop on XML Schema 1.0 Use

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I do.  I expect that XML as the unifying metalanguage for 
the world wide distributed hypermedia communications will 
have about a decade and a half of useful life and will 
be replaced, thus taking the Schema language with it.  

As the pipes and intelligence in the intermediaries improves, 
it will be more effective to send the objects instead of 
the data only.  Standardization in hardware and the 
demise of the fixed operating system will enable this.

XML is a fad to be passed and it is just a matter of 
how long it's successor stays in the passing lane.  I 
expect this to be quite a bit more sudden than one suspects.  
It's openness will be its downfall.

It's not broken. It's awkward, it's verbose, it's entrenched. I would be 
very surprised to wake up 10 years from now and find that people have 
stopped using W3C XML Schema.
