   RE: [xml-dev] Why XML for Messaging?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It isn't fast enough when used wall-to-wall. I read 
about tuning parsers, etc., but if I am doing that, 
I am not using off-the-shelf COTS.  So why bother?

I'll bet a beer:  when we finally get Longhorn and 
look under the covers, we'll discover MS optimized 
the blazes out of some XML pieces by subsetting it 
and being very persnickety about substitutions.

To be fair, for a lot of XML applications, none 
of this matters.  For applications for which it 
does matter, we're on our own.  That can be ok, 
because as Rich pointed out, we get to choose. 
As long as we are doing that, we may want to 
use another syntax for messaging too.

Still, what will replace XML?  What will it look like? 
Is it hiding in the tall grass or is it laying on 
the shelf at Sun?  It's a fun question.
