RE: [xml-dev] XML Schema: "Best used with the ______ tool"

One other observation on this "benchmark":

The idea I'm pushing is that you write the application end-to-end using
XML-based languages. That means that you never convert the data into C++ or
Java data types. If you only go half way, by calling XQuery from Java and
then converting the results to Java values, you lose half the benefits.
