Are groves just an object > model? http://www.prescod.net/groves/shorttut It depends on your definition of "object model." I would argue that the DOM is not an "object model" but is rather an API that has an implicit object model underneath it. You could also argue that groves are not an object model because the objects described have no behavior so a better term would be data model. Anyhow, the concept is the same as the "XML Information Set" except more general, more formal and more flexible. The information set is a big step forward and something like groves is the next step: The grove model allows you to define *new* information sets for * non-XML media * for the abstract objects in new abstraction layers on top of XML. For instance in the grove world we can easily add "nodes" for hyperlinks and "properties" for namespaces without editing some centrally maintained "everything there is to know about XML" document. -- Paul Prescod - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for only himself http://itrc.uwaterloo.ca/~papresco Alabama's constitution is 100 years old, 300 pages long and has more than 600 amendments.
