Re: [offtopic] Re: SQL instead of XQuery

I disagree.  SQL works against relational databases.  XQuery goes against XML 
and XML databases, so the comparison of SQL vs XQuery drags in the topic of 
what storage mechanism to use as well.

So is SQL.  What's your point?

I have done a lot of production development in both systems, and I speak from 
years of experience.  XQuery is about 10x more productive on both initial dev 
and maintenance.

Your theoretical arguments are specious and carry no weight.  The real world 
begs to differ with your unsubstantiated opinion.

Again, I speak from years (and decades) of experience developing robust code 
quickly for various industry segments.  Under real world criteria of 
productivity, cost, maintainbility, flexibility, agility and such, they are

I am a very senior developer (also Pres, CTO, VP IT and Architect).  I and my 
team think you are full of shit when you make such unsubstantiated comments, 
and we've proven it on many a prodution project.

What have you done, Dimitry, except spout total BS?

Bullshit.  Utter, unadulterated claptrap.

All your proposal removed is your brain cells.

Gasket?  I have gaskets in my motorcycle engines.  I don't have any gaskets 
in my code.

I suggest you not try and correct English grammar nor spelling, as your 
responses have clearly shown you to be unqualified for such critiques.

Try google.com on Presentation Zen.  But then that's probably too difficult 
for a non-programmer.

It's extinct.

Read all my prior stuff.

No I didn't.  I said exactly what I meant and observed. I stand by my 
statement that you have no understanding of the "real world", and what it 
takes to do real development.
