RE: MSXML for Java Questions
oops! I should mention that the term 'commercial support' means that they actually fix simple trivially demonstrable showstopping bugs... Of course there were no guarantees expressed about when. erik -----Original Message----- From: owner-xml-dev@i...

Subject: RE: MSXML for Java Questions I am not sure I understand question #1, but if it helps, I know is that microsoft has in some way backed the company datachannel who supply a java version of its IE5 xml/xsl com components. This product came out earlier this year. (see www.datachannel.com) . Though their documentation does not at all suggest this, datachannel is *not* providing commercial support for this product unless you pay $5K per year. (!) The other problem is that there are those who believe that this product is far from production worthy, and it is definitely far behind other XML/XSL products in keeping up with current releases of standards. To make matters even worse, both companies refuse to make a public statement in regards to any of these issues and their intentions. Thus one pretty much has to either cough up $5K on the off chance that this makes any difference (I have my doubts), or do what we ended up doing, porting off of their product to IBM (or whatever) xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
