RE: XML faster than mySQL database ?
In my mind, performance is one aspect. What is much more interesting is - A. Is it possible to cut development cost for web applications using XML, XML Schema, XSLT, XPath, XQuery drastically ? B. Is it easy to make changes to this XML-based web applications to accommodate business changes ? In other words, are this applications easier to maintain ? More I work with XML technologies, I am convinced that the current JSP/ASP way of building web applications has outlived its life-cycle. --Naren -----Original Message----- From: Bullard, Claude L (Len) [mailto:clbullar@i...] Sent: Wednesday, March 06, 2002 11:50 AM To: 'Ken North'; Subject: RE: XML faster than mySQL database ? Thatcher wins. The Yugo won't cross the finish line, (YuGo but You May Not Come Back!) if Andretti has to drive it all out for 48 hours, and Thatcher never lost a race she was determined to win given a sufficiently powerful party to carry her.

How well you can dynamically generate content for the Web site is more a function of techniques and developer skill than whether you are using mySQL or an XML database. Given a Porsche, a Yugo, and the LeMans raceway, who will win a 24-hour race? ... ... ... Does it matter if Michael Andretti is driving the Yugo and Margaret Thatcher is driving the Porsche? ----------------------------------------------------------------- The xml-dev list is sponsored by XML.org <http://www.xml.org>, an initiative of OASIS <http://www.oasis-open.org> The list archives are at http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/ To subscribe or unsubscribe from this list use the subscription manager: <http://lists.xml.org/ob/adm.pl>
