RE: Why XML for Messaging?

RE:  Why XML for Messaging?
Well, if you can actually field it (and YOU can), 
you can also patent it.

Ok, not funny but worth a try.

Because where one wants to use XML machinery without XML 
syntax on the wire, one has to have the infrastructure and 
if that means getting it from Sun, so be it.  MS doesn't 
get to play in that market.


From: Dare Obasanjo [mailto:dareo@m...]

XML is sub-optimal for almost every task we use it for. 

It is suboptimal as a document format for the Web. It is suboptimal as a
wire format for distributed computing. It is suboptimal as a program
configuration file format. It is suboptimal as a syntax for programming
languages. It is suboptimal as an business document format. 

However it is "good enough" at being all these things that we put up
with it. Anyone can come up with a better format for their specific
scenario. So what?
