XML News from Tuesday, October 23, 2007

The W3C Web API Working Group has published the first working draft of Language Bindings for DOM Specifications. "“Language Bindings for DOM Specifications” is intended to specify in detail the IDL language used by W3C specifications to define DOM interfaces, and to provide precise conformance requirements for ECMAScript and Java bindings of such interfaces. It is expected that this document acts as a guide to implementors of already-published DOM specifications, and that newly published DOM specifications reference this document to ensure conforming implementations of DOM interfaces are interoperable." For reasons I'll be elaborating on later this year, this spec is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

Don't forget, tonight, Tuesday October 23, I will be presenting Native XML Databases to the New York PHP User's Group in midtown Manhattan. The meeting is free but preregistration and photo ID are required.
