Re: Failure Criteria: Simple XML Event-Based API for Java
[Peter Murry Rust] >There are two sorts of posting on this subject: those people who have >offered to *do* something; and those people who have offered to tell the >others what to do :-). Careful there. I am easily insulted:-) I am not a Java programmer (yet). Neither am I an XML parser writer. However, what goes on in SAX-J discussions is important to me because it will form the basis of what goes into SAX-IDL and thusly into C++ and Python which I *do* write XML software in. I do a lot of report generation/data harvesting from SGML/XML. That makes my usage of these things fundamentally different from the viewing type applications that (I believe) you are primarily interested in. I do not believe my worries/concerns are any less valid than yours. My need for a simple API is no less valid than yours. If someone had said "hey lets do a simple XML API for read-only apps" I would not have felt as concerned about dropped comments, pis, what have you. If that was said when SAX started, I apologise for missing it and unreservedly apologise for un-focusing the effort. Happy new year to everyone.
