Think you know something about XML and Web services? Check out all these web service standards. Oh my! Just say no. No!

The only XML technology that I’d like to share with you right now is the upcoming NoXML. It will usher in an exicting new world to software development. The best XML technology ever.

NoXML – wonderful new XML technology!

Avoid round trips!

October 22, 2004 Leave a comment

Just watched Ted Neward’s TSS tech talk. It resonated with me quite well. He revealed that his new book – Effective Enterprise Java – is sumed up by the phrase: “Avoid round trips!”. I like his “let’s not get religious about OO” attitude. He seems a little closed to dynamically typed languages and talks about “strong typing” when he means “static typing”. Anyways, he’s trying out Smalltalk so there’s hope :). All the talk of REST and “spaces” (JavaSpaces, T-Spaces etc) leads me to think of the Erlang and Oz models of concurrency (like a generalisation of the UNIX pipe). These languages need more proponents!
