Re: Feasibility of "do all application coding in the XML langu
Hi Roger, There are many software applications, which need imperative programming infrastructure (where we should be able to change program state at will, like using assignment statement as so on). Examples of such applications could be, 1. Complex business logic (say I am implementing a work flow for an insurance company) 2. Game programming :) 3. GUI programming and so on. To my opinion, none of the above tasks can be done (or easily done) in XML based languages. Whereas XML based languages are specialized to process XML data.

If your transform requires any "higher math" or advanced functionality or external code libraries (such as geometry coordinate system libraries), you almost always have to go back to a higher level language (such as Java) at some point." > > Does my colleague make a TRUE or FALSE statement? > > /Roger -- Regards, Mukul Gandhi
