Example text

In addition, this data model is a closed data model, meaning that running an XQuery against an instance of the data model is guaranteed to produce an instance of the data model. In addition, enhancements to the XPathDocument class will enable it to support in-place editing and change tracking, and marshaling of sets of changes. This makes the in-memory client-side XML model on a par with the client-side relational DataSet class. In a revolutionary approach to querying XML data from the client, a generalized client-side parsing and execution engine, known as the common query abstraction, will allow XPath, XSLT, and XQuery syntax to be compiled into an intermediate query format, in a method analogous to high-level languages being compiled into IL code.

I’ve read in some trade publications that the new features just aren’t that interesting; they’re more like a recitation of glitzy acronyms than substance. This may be the initial perception, but let’s rewind to mid-1981. I’m working for an insurance company in Seattle, and we’re planning to convert our indexed file data, which we’d just converted from ISAM (indexed sequential access method) to VSAM (virtual storage access method), to a better, more robust database engine. The one we had in mind was IMS (IBM’s Information Management System product).

As an example, porting COM to the Solaris platform required installing the equivalent of a Windows registry and an NTLM security service. But the biggest problem was network protocol and access to specific ports on network servers. COM not only used a proprietary protocol and network ports when run over TCP/IP, but required opening port 135 for the naming service to operate correctly, something that few system administrators would permit. By contrast, most system administrators gladly opened port 80 and allowed the HTTP protocol, even setting up special proxy servers rather than denying internal users access to the World Wide Web.
