Has anyone taken a look at Microsoft's "updategrams" for XML? >Updategrams define the structure of an XML document that can >be used to describe a change to another XML document. The change >is described by presenting what a fragment of the document looked >like before the change and what the fragment should look like after >the change. The before data is used to locate the portion of the >document that should be changed. Enough data must be specified so >that only one matching fragment can be found in the document. When >the portion of the document matching the before data is found, it >is changed to match the data specified in the after-data fragment >of the updategram. This mechanism also supports optimistic concurrency >control because if another user has changed the same portion of the >document, the before data won't match and the update will fail. They've got a beta up that works with a beta of SQL server 2000, but these look like they might be useful in other situations as well: http://msdn.microsoft.com/downloads/betas/updategrams.asp There doesn't appear to be any support for versioning or other content-management-oriented issues, but it's aimed at a database audience right now.
