Subject: RE: [was] Today's meeting
Hello everyone, I do not think that the level of interest has really dropped all that much. We have had some changes in participation, and I think that we are going to be back on track very soon. I speak to people on a daily basis - who are very interested in what this TC is doing. There will be updates very soon.

Thanks. > > Regards, > > Kevin Heineman Hi Kevin, It looks like the level of interest in WAS-XML has dropped significantly (to zero, practically) I personally have very little time to spend on it nowadays, and frankly, I'm not even convinced that XML is the right tool to describe complex interactions, possibly involving multiple threads and multiple requests. It seems that all we would be doing is creating a new specialised programming language, with none of the flexibility of a 1st class language, and all the downsides and complexity of an XML document. Maybe we were being too ambitious . . .
