 Mike Henderson: I've been looking hard at Groovy and  Groovy Markup gives you something like
SDL without having to write a parser. I've implemented a builder class for connecting beans
together with Groovy Markup:
 HowardLewisShip: I'm not saying that you '''can't''' build beans using the scripting language
of your choice. I'm simply saying that doing so, you may lose some of the benefits of !HiveMind.
 HiveDoc, for starters.  Line precise error reporting, potentially. And it adds to the dependencies.
I'd certainly endorse the idea of an add-on library to let you use scripting if that's your
way, but I don't want to see the core of !HiveMind screwed just to support scripting, which
only ''some'' people think is the One True Path.
+SteveGibson: For us, we use a lot of XML already, so being able to keep XML for me is very
important. A lot of people are saying they don't want to invent a new language - SDL. Well,
to me, this looks a lot like IBMs Stanza format, used in AIX forever, and also the configuration
format a company I used to work for came up with - purely because you specify the object you
want to create and assign the properties. I think the SDL is very readable, and would probably
use it if we didn't already use lots of XML files and *gasp* properties files.
