Message text written by duane >The users of ebXML will have to have XML parsers to participate in ebXML. It is not hard to write a couple of simple handlers to grab an XML fragment from an XML DOcument instance. THink of scalability. If GCA adopts ebXML with all 800,000 + of their member companies it will cripple the Registry if they all ask for one document to be loaded into the DOM and some processing done.< >>>>>>>>>>>>> Duane, This is totally unrealistic. Two or three years from now - if you are lucky you may see traffic going towards these extremes - and only against certain pivotal registries. What we need now is a workable first cut to get 10, 20, 100 larger companies up and running. Believe me - that will take a year just by itself. Another thing - who said anything about the DOM? You agreed with JP about avoiding ALL talk of backend implementation detail - if someone uses the DOM to do content parsing - they do so at their own risk. Other people will use other means. We do need to precisely define the frontend service interfacing, and make sure that is not overly complicated, and also how it integrates into the schema or DTD parsing interactions. That currently is unclear as defined in our spec's as XML Parser is not one of the actors in the use cases explicitly named. DW.
