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.

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)
