Can we envision an XML document with a >structure varying in time? We may have to if we want to create >"data flow" systems to model business processes (i.e. workflows). Looks like we are heading toward same goal via different mental track. The word 'document' invokes too many preconceived notions to be used in this context, I believe. XML stream is more like it. XML stream that changes its structure over time requires dynamic schema with ability to redefine, augment, remove schema fragments. Implementation wise, this is rather simple. Have client dynamically download schema fragment-specific handlers. Security is no problem since they are restricted to operations on the stream itself. Java is a perfect fit for this. >Dreams are simply potential realities unknown author. I think dreams are brain farts but I your description *sounds* better. <g> Best, Don Park - mailto:donpark@d...
