RE: XML vs relational database
Nonetheless, claims are made because they work the Politics of Stuff to an advantage. As a result, in documentDB apps, it was a near run thing. As I said, hordes. Mass mind. Wisdom of crowds, the meme stchtick to void out the older terms for first-order/second-order transitions in cybertetics: control emergence (engine of choice over some domain appearing given some set of value transactions given multiple choosers; do queries shape systems? How are values determined, or what is domain evolution?). Understand, I love relational dbs, SQL etc. Now that there are XML data types, I have the best of both worlds data-wise. So the messaging strategies are the new political ground for stuff. The fun of this list is and always has been it's ability to debate until the essentials of the technical points are visible to lurkers everywhere. Fine service, really. len -----Original Message----- From: Ken North [mailto:kennorth@s...] >> We wouldn't have anything. The outcry would have been "SQL does all of that >> already".

Let's distinguish between the storage engine used for an SQL product and the query language itself. Even though the storage engine of an SQL product might handle nested sets, the SQL query language of that era wasn't powerful enough for a reasonable person to argue "SQL does all of that already". Capabilities such as XML schema mapping or using a DTD or schema to validate query results were beyond the scope of the SQL language of that time. It would surprise me if Jim Melton feels updating the standard from SQL-92 to SQL/XML has been a slam dunk. _______________________________________________________________________ XML-DEV is a publicly archived, unmoderated list hosted by OASIS to support XML implementation and development.
