Subject Re: [PATCH] Basic apr_xml_parser
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 04:01:41 GMT

I must say that you never stops to amaze us.

Everything I dreamed about when Apache2 was introduced the first time,
is now implemented in apreq2.

And now this XML implementation...

Just one small thought, and please ignore me if I missed anything or
dream about a too hard / irrelevant wish:

Recently, libxml2 (with or without libxslt) became de-facto standard
library for Open Source projects, especially projects built around
Apache (see some examples at the (slow...) site of our friend Nick Kew:

Using the same license as expat (MIT), it outperforms it, is much
simpler, richer and covers everything you could dream about.

>From looking at your source, it's clear that it's not too late to move
to libxml2; Is it possible? Is it something that you want?

I know that there is some internal XML support in APR, though I've
never looked at it, nor used it; Is this the reason for prefering

In my vision, I see this XML stuff that you presented, supporting SOAP
and becoming the base library for new web application servers as well
as web services; Considering its future importance, isn't there any
posibility to examine the use of libxml2 as its infrastructure?

Just my thoughts...  Please ignore me if I was wrong in something...

Thanks for your great library,
