Re: It's time for practical XML!
Hi, Dave! Here are some comments: >We looked at WDDX and saw that it was a subset of XML-RPC. > >http://www.scripting.com/frontier5/xml/code/rpc.html Not really. WDDX is explicitly about not being related to RPC. It deals specifically and only with data. There is no notion of request-response, objects, methods, and interfaces. As far as data is concerned, apart the fact that we expose a recordset datatype, our datatypes are indeed similar. >WDDX makes no statement about transport. We're going to look at supporting >it, but we're already deploying apps that do this stuff, along with >WebMethods and others, have been since March. Allaire still has to settle >on a transport (we suggest HTTP). This is done on purpose, since WDDX is only about describing data. Yes, HTTP makes the most sense for moving data around the 'net. I recently saw an example of a WDDX-enabled app that pulled data from an ASP and a ColdFusion server to later display the data in MS Word. HTTP and DCOM were involved. I also know of applications that use WDDX as a structured representation for data they persist to databases. >Also, XML-RPC made Infoworld back in July, along with an interesting note >that Microsoft is somehow involved: > >http://www.infoworld.com/cgi-bin/displayStory.pl?980710.whsoap.htm Yes, this was an interesting article! >I would argue that XML is about working together.
