Re: XML Performance in Client-Server Interactions
I want to mainly emphasize some points from Michael Champion's response. The W3C XML-Binary group is *not* coming up with a binary format, but rather characterizing what's important for such a format if created. BTW, there's also the Sun-initiated ISO effort (X.fws, fast web services) and various research efforts around, too. The "network device" approach is increasingly being seen as a reasonable architecture. We make such devices, so I'm biased. But 12-24 months ago you'd have to do a real "sell job" to talk to folks about "XML in the network." But now it's rare that it's not already on someone's architecture list. (This is for, say, Fortune 1000 or similar, with departments devoted to Enterprise Computing Architecture or some such.) One interesting things about client/server XML is that the computing load is asymmetric. It's a heck of a lot easier to generate XML than it is to consume and process it. Your note didn't seem to take that into account. /r$ -- Rich Salz, Chief Security Architect DataPower Technology http://www.datapower.com XS40 XML Security Gateway http://www.datapower.com/products/xs40.html XML Security Overview http://www.datapower.com/xmldev/xmlsecurity.html
