Re: XSLT Dead?
I have personally been on a project where a particular tool - say for example CMS or a Rules based engine (supposed to be a 6th Gen Programming Language) was used.
In the case where the Rules based engine was used, development was a lot quicker --- the tool claimed to replace 5 programmers with 1 and reduced the development time considerably.
The cost remains the same -- pre-built tools cost a lot (since they claim to replace many developers with a few developers) , but in the end the client who uses the tool ends up paying for the upgrade, maintainance and support costs.
There are pluses and minuses to using a pre-built solution and with custom-built solution, I'm speaking from my personal experience.
I choose to stay with mostly open-source programming languages rather than proprietary vendor-based languages. It is easier to find projects. :-)
