   RE: [xml-dev] Demand for web services

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

"In my opinion the separation isn't the principle feature neither in
XML nor in Web Services." - Xasima

"I agree.  It is one of the stronger myths about XML, repeated 
everywhere and seldom examined critically as you are doing." - Len

"It's not a myth; it's a very useful and important part of XML. But only a
part, and not always required, as you noted." - Doug

It's not a part of XML.  That is the myth.  It is a design principle. 
That is not a myth.

The tough part is principles in conflict: such as the Principle 
of Least Power vs The Principle of Separation of Content and 
Presentation.  Let the parsing continue.

> But XML doesn't care.  You do. 

This started with a discussion as to why Web Services had been adopted, and
strayed into a discussion of why XML had been adopted. You seem to be
arguing against a viewpoint that I seem to have missed; I don't recall
anyone suggesting that XML had views on anything.
