RE: XML should NOT be a new programming language
I'm with Niels. This has been tried several times in several places with the usual reply being "so what is so special about a pointy bracket". ("Don't Shock The Monkey"). It can be done but why do it? There are several good object-oriented programming languages that support lean parsing. Why put a fat parsing language into the mix with all of the overhead of dozens of ancillary specifications? It seems like a good way to confuse people and systems. XML: the pine tree of syntax-unified systems. len From: Simon St.Laurent [mailto:simonstl@s...] On Sat, 2002-03-02 at 10:22, Niels Peter Strandberg wrote: > I want XML in Java! While poking around on some other projects this morning, I found: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/api/java/beans/XMLEncoder.html It seems to be running the opposite direction from what Niels wants, but it's interesting in its own way. I'm not used to seeing "void" in markup. ------------------------------- <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <java version="1.0" class="java.beans.XMLDecoder"> <object class="javax.swing.JFrame"> <void property="name"> <string>frame1</string> </void>
