Java IDEs and XML
I am prototyping a new application, and it will be using WebObjects. WebObjects has a development environment, a JVM and does a bridge between Java objects and the database. I was thinking about using XML for handling the contents of news, event announcements and for storing metadata about documents. Would that be better than having the application to talk directly to the database, updating directly database entries? I think the general answer is: depends on the application. In this case, I like the idea of using XML because it would easyly handle documents metadata, and I would easyly handle news stuff with something like CDF. On the other hand, the whole development environment is driven to model objects, map them to the database and generate Java code. And if I don't use any database at all for those sections of the project, how am I going to handle concurrent updates, data (or document, in this case) consistency on blablablaML documents? Is this responsability over my Java code now and not on the database? Do you think XML is a good alternative to this application? I think that would be a problem that aplies to other Java tools also, although I don't know deeply other Java IDE. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
