RE: OT: Save me from typing (was: XML as "passive data")
Nah, nah, nah. You're still typing when using properties. Less typing, perhaps, but not much less. What really I'm driving at is this: 1) define data model 2) define physical representation of (1) 3) declare private/protected/public access to data primitives in (2) 4) declare higher-order access for complex types in (2) 5) couple objects to (2) 6) have implicit access methods in objects from declarations in (3) & (4) 7) allow overrides of (5) in derived classes So the implicit accessors/mutators is just part of the overall picture I have in mind. I don't pretend to have all this thought out, BTW. Anyhow, this is way OT at this point, and a rehash of a thread a year or so ago, besides. Shall we get back to XML?
