Subject: Re: [regrep-cc-review] Kickoff!


Look at what you just wrote please!

"other formats stored <snip> along with the equivalent XML format".

That's exactly the point -and what if there is NO available XML format?!?

And if there is an available XML format - why would we want to store the
other binary goup - since we can't do anything with that meaningful!!!

If the CCTS folks already think they have that "available XML format",
then we are wasting our time.  If they don't - then we need to realize
that any non-XML gets either stored as a binary - or a pointer to its
extrinsic instance.  And we need an XML serialization system to
actually manage the semantics.   But we critically need to understand
what those semantics are - so we're not reinventing XMI or UML,
but simply providing a means to capture vocabularies of nouns,
aggregates and logical core components.


Message text written by "Chiusano Joseph"
I was not looking at XML serialization to perform that role, but rather
to have these "other format" objects stored in the registry along with
the equivalent XML format (for example, 2 representations of an object -
one XML, the other UML). Then, these 2 representations would be
associated using the registry association mechanism.

Please tell me if I am missing something.
