Re: Packaging (was Re: Interoperability)
Another format that should be considered is DIME: http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/xml_wsspecs/dime/default.htm It seems pleasantly simple and well-designed. You can stream it for both input and output. It is being used by the Web Services Routing Protocol http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnsrvspec/ html/ws-routing.asp so will probably get implemented quite widely. To use DIME as the XML packaging mechanism, the first record in the DIME package would be meta-data, presumably in some XML format. On the hand it doesn't provide random access. James
