Re: Native XML Interfaces

Maybe everyone shouldn't be able to deal with the "raw" XML and  
without a decent data dictionary, shouldn't.   But time and time again  
the ability to read a type definition and scree the XML saved my bacon.

I gave my current firm's (consultants for rent r us) representative a  
list of questions to ask people who are offering themselves up as  
gurus for hire.  She requested it.  The problem was taggers trying to  
offer themselves as data analysts and getting thrown back like bad  
fish a few weeks later or not making it through the interview.  XML  
education is a serious and I believe growing problem in the industry.

There are many XML application/vocabularies and I don't expect  
everyone to know all of them.  There is a big body of XML supporting  
software and programming or querying/database skills are required and  
I don't expect everyone to know all of them.

But if they can't read native XML at all, throw them back on the dock.  
  Basics matter.
