RE: The DOM and the victim, the iconoclast and the believer
Hi David, After checking twice I discovered that you probably meant (again it may depend for each IDL to C++ mapping. Node.get_OwnerDocument().get_Implementation().hasFeature() Sorry, I was checking for getimplementation but it is more "Implementation" which is mapped on several IDL to C++ as "get_Implementation()". So you are right David, DOM level 1 got the capability for level or feature support probing. However, everything that I said about the impedance mismatch in the case of early binding about the Mozilla XPCOM, the WINE and Microsoft DCOM, remains true. Because the node interface changed, the C++ client will simply get a system error also more commonly called an application crash. So, the solution to have a non-changing interface to probe the provider capabilities remains, or that W3C declare that XPCOM and DCOM are heretics that only deserved to be excommunicated from the Web dev community :-))) Cheers Didier PH Martin ---------------------------------------------- Email: martind@n...
