Re: Feasibility of "do all application coding in the XML langu

u might want to take another look at xquery  ... I have found that
most of the functional idioms are doable with extensions (1st class
funcs) and XQuery lends itself readily to working with XML... u may
even find you can port your code through time by directly using your
existing xslt transforms from within XQuery as you figure out
refactoring them.

I have a signifcant project using XQuery and it uses a generic fold
function as its main engine for 'doing stuff';  I think this choice in
architecture will eventually give me the opportunity  to use a
mapreduce algorithm to distribute processing ... well thats the
theory. Hopefully I will make a release of this app soon.

Getting the data structure right for defining rules in your app sounds
like the crux of the problem ... grammers, parsing etc ... all old
problems with solutions but still hard.

keep us updated on your progress, Jim Fuller

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
