in reply to Re: XML for databases?!?! YES!!! With XML, XSL, and SAXON!
in thread XML for databases?!?! Is it just me or is the rest of the world nutz?
Don't get me wrong...but all of what you mentioned can be done from flat-files...heck, even I wrote a script that allows me to multi-template & table my data from flat files (without the bulk of additional record and field tags). This is really only a concern when dealing with large data sources. The XML markup is a p.i.t.a. and incrediblely redundant.
I'll check the page on Saxon out...no guarentees that I'll convert though.
