Here's a quick list of my requirements: 1) We need to be able to create/modify the contents of an OODBMS (Which is either Java/C++ classes and instances, and more dynamic structures modeled to look like a Java/c++ class/instance) in a non-programmatic manner 2) Dump/load the database contents to/from text 3) Ship data around via CORBA, RMI or http (We don't want to dictate the transport mechanism) to clients written in an unknown language 4) Import data into various editors or viewers (including browsers). Number 3 is the most critical, and also most useful to applications outside my particular implementation. So obviously I don't need to explain, but the big issue is the need to verify that data described via XML is 'correct' (e.g. modeled classes contain the correct members and members are the correct type) and uniform across and within all documents that are used. This was solved in the past by creating my own XMLschema like document. I was hoping to implement in a more standard manner this time around. I think XMI is that standard manner (it's been submitted to the OMG), but it's way more complex than I need, and it's about twice as long as the XML Schema standard. Sun is also doing something similar. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, but it may be better to take the discussion of the list, as we may be straying from it's purpose, and this list has enough traffic already :) thanks, alan xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
