RE: [xmlblaster-devel] XML generation

Title: RE: [xmlblaster-devel] XML generation


The issues you're mentioning are indeed very important.
But the thing is when you have an xmlblaster client publishing a message
with eg. the oid = Jack&Moud, you'll get a parse error on the server side,
because the XML that is sent over between client and server is invalid.

As long as the application programmer does not use any 'special' characters,
everything should work fine.  But I think it's not a good idea to put
a restriction on the use of 'special' characters.

This is a nice overview, our constraints to change
to another xml generation technique are:

  - support for JDK 1.2 up to 1.5
  - keep performance
  - portability
