RE: [xml-dev] Is CVS A Practical Means to Manage XML Versions In A Production Environment

This thread got me thinking along with the recent thread on optimal xml
Imagine an editor where the only operations allowed are those specified by
XQuery update.
Now some of these would have to be 'chunked' up in the GUI as you probably
don't want every single character entered doing an XQuery update ... so
maybe an inline text field as you edit text and when you hit enter or tab or
click out of it, it commits the edit.
Otherwise the only edits which 'commit' are XQuery updates.

Combine this with the versioning history mechanism described in this thread
(although likely much of it in memory unless the DB can keep up in
real-time) ...  Or maybe a transactional model where you can 'undo' edits
back to the last save point before they are 'live'.

For non-XML or for WYSIWYG documents the xml tags could be 'hidden' but
still use the same technique.

Ok, I seriously don't know where I'm going with this but it's what I was
thinking as I fell asleep last night :)

Hi Len,

In our case, the target users are Web application developers (the vision is
to use XQuery as the main language on all layers: browser, middleware,

Kind regards,
