RE: Adam Bosworth Article - what does "direct access" mean?
Please correct me if I am wrong but the source on your home page shows yetAnotherProceduralProgrammingLanguageInPointiesWithColons. Ok. That's the MID approach, tried, tested, shown to work but was universally hated by C and C++ programmers who said, "Why bother?" And I don't recognize the stylesheet examples at all. Huh? Exactly how would o:XML provide XML to a direct access model? len From: Martin Klang [mailto:martin@h...] XSLT provides, for XML, unparallelled integration with the data model, or 'direct access' possibilities. unfortunately it is not a programming paradigm that many, what was the term, weenie programmers (?) are comfortable with. also xsl is highly focused on a particular type of problem - transformations. this was the reason for creating o:XML, which aims to be an orthogonal technology to XSLT by providing a procedural, object-oriented language with 'direct' XML access, geared at XML generation and processing. since, as Bosworth apparently thinks (quote from previous mail), "it is becoming increasingly necessary for developers to directly access and manipulate XML documents." and, at least on the planet i'm on, he's not wrong.
