Apache To Take On XML Efforts
This came in the InternetWorld Newsletter this morning, the site is supposed to be <http://www.internetworldnews.com> but it's down, so I'll extract useful bits. The other useful URL seems to be <http://xml.apache.org> ---------------- Apache To Take On XML Efforts By Nate Zelnick [commentary on XML's lack of Java-like hype snipped] .... IBM ( http://www.ibm.com )and Sun Microsystems ( http://www.sun.com ) ... will announce Tuesday that they are turning over source code for their respective XML parsing engines to the Apache Software Foundation ( http://www.apache.org )... ... Apache plans to build developer tools that make the adoption of XML an easier process for information architects, Web designers, and application providers. This, it is hoped, will light a fire under the industry's currently sluggish movements toward adopting a universal standard for describing structured documents. In addition to IBM and Sun, DataChannel ( http://www.datachannel.com ), Lotus Development Corp., and a host of other XML-oriented companies that aren't Microsoft are also expected to contribute technology to the Apache effort. Microsoft may participate in future open source XML efforts with Apache, according to a spokesperson. Information about Apache's XML efforts will be available at <http://xml.apache.org>. -------------- Interesting stuff.
