Well I don't know anything about patents, unless it were the glory days of patent medicine, the things that made me think about CAM was in the context of content assembly where the content is not in xml format, which I supposed some patents from various offices might not be. When you used the repository term there I immediately thought about CAM's requirements for maintaining transactional integrity. > Questions: > > 1) Just glancing at the spec it appears to have at least some overlap > with Schematron for parts of it.

Personally I would really like seeing some sort of schematron/CAM interactivity, mainly cause it would be more interesting I think than CAM/XSD interactivity. > 2) Any one using this for anything production like? According to David Webber British Telecomm is using up to 100 CAM templates for "checking field trouble ticket reports on a daily basis" I don't know anything about field trouble tickets but supposedly they are troublesome, as well as being about trouble. As I understand they are using JCAM http://jcam.org.uk/ which is at an alpha state, I haven't used it yet, however the spec does seem reasonably clear to me and probably wouldn't be too much trouble to implement. > > 3) Any recommended software? > > I'm not sure JCAM can be considered recommended, it's alpha (and I had some troubles getting it running), David Webber is as I understand it currently working on a project which should see JCAM finished by November.
