I wonder. Is it really a "globally accessible database" that is the holy
Or is it something more like a "universally accepted data sublanguage"?
The thing that makes XML attractive to some people is not that it would be a good basis on which to build a dtabase, but that it seems convenient for data exchange. I shudder at the idea of XML becoming the universal data sublanguage, but it sure is growing by leaps and bounds. Received on Tue Dec 18 2007 - 12:52:40 CET
