Architectural Forms and Oracle (or SIM) [was Re: "Multiple" Namespaces?(
Rather than strictly re-visit the multiple namespaces issue (or detract from the SML/RTSML/XML/WAP/RSS etc. threads), I wanted to request if list members can allow me to inquire further regarding a possible solution ssuggested by Paul as to my question some time back, viz. the following (question follows this short snip-set of preceding discussion): On Fri, 5 Nov 1999, Paul Prescod wrote: > John Robert Gardner wrote: > > > > <GoalScenario> > > Heinrich at Humboldt U. in Berlin is dilligently searching the world's > > various library resources with his Dublin-Core-Based engine for > > <Creator>Tillich</Creator> and we want his DC system to transparently find > > the wealth of Tillich articles we'd have online. > > </GoalScenario> > Yes, architectural forms work fine with XML now.

I've yet to begin puttering with PL/SQL for our current Oracle setup and, while we're preparing soon to seriously look at SIM, I'm wondering if anyone out there has suggestions of possible software we could/should be looking at (Steve Muench on this?) for working with ORacle and Arch. Forms for the time being? I've looked at Eliot Kimber's article ofn SGML Architectures at http://www.isogen.com/papers/archintro.html and noted Clark's SP works with Arch Forms, beyond htis, however, I'm uncertain as to where to proceed/turn.
