XML as a standard for describing data structure is great - no problem with
it. What you describe sounds weird - I doubt it would be feasible for this
use and bring any advantage over existing interpreted languages. What is the
main reason for it? "Everybody's using it" doesn't seem enough to me - i.e.
everyone's using it, let's use it too (especially when you propose to use it
for something it was not intended to). If you want to be able to put
together applications quickly I much better liked the XUL idea that was
under discussion here (but that's the GUI part). It's already here, well
developed, tested - just port it...
Just my 2 cents ;-)

Subject: [ros-dev] Feature Request
XML is actively becoming part of technology and programming. Every major
development company has embraced some form of XML in one product or another.
I was wondering if ReactOS would be interested in developing some form of
application to handle XML-based applications.
These applications would be written in XML and bundled in a ZIP file much
like the ODF formats that OpenOffice 2.0 is using. XML applications would be
allowed to communicate with some processing application protocols and
functions. I think something like this would be a great feature that would
quickly allow novice programmers to quickly develop applications for ReactOS
and share them on the website. Think of it, no compilation time. That would
I will try to write a proof-of-concept application for Windows XP and 2000
for trial and testing.
My main question is: If something like this is wanted/needed/or if ReactOS
members finds interesting would ReactOS think about supporting it in the
first production release. Which is still far off, I would imagine.
