RE: Python and JSON vs XML???
Actually, they are that high. During the 'mad era', very big contracts have been let that require the use of XML. Take a look at EDXL, CAP, GML, SensorML and inquire if these make sense given the speeds required and the video payloads. XML doesn't make sense in some of this. The trick is to figure out where: hint, the closer you get to real time, the less sense markup makes. Java doesn't rule. In fact, in lots of these contracts, it doesn't count. Microsoft has to take the credit and the blame for what is about to happen. Speeding up XML and compressing the payloads is a big deal. Those who don't think XML Binary is going to happen are putting rocks in a river that will simply flow around them. I have a sense when reading this thread that we are talking about programmers and systems that are small, one-off, don't have to scale, and aren't integrated. When size really matters, the programmers accept the trade-offs because if they don't, they look for new jobs. Are you a turtle? You bet your sweet a** you are. len From: Uche Ogbuji [mailto:Uche.Ogbuji@f...] On Thu, 2005-08-25 at 12:46 -0500, Bullard, Claude L (Len) wrote: > Nope.

If Java programmers ditch Ant for something less stultifying, no sane manager in the world is going to tell them "NO! You *must* use Ant because it's XML based". It doesn't matter where programmers are in the food chain. Stakes are not high enough for The Will Of The Law.
