Subject Re: [HELP] I can't not type < sign in my sqlmap xml file

I don't plan on promoting any templating languages. It offloads the
burden to another layer. The dyanmic conditionals would get out of
hand. At that point it would be far easier to handle things in java.
The heirarchal nature of xml is of great importance to dynamic sql.
So, i still see it as being the easiest means to manage the SQL. If
you are using a template language you already violate the verasity of
your sql outside of ibatis. So, &lt; is a minor issue IMO.

In version 3.0 one of our goals is to remove the dependency on the
configuration being solely XML and allow for java based configuraiton.
This would mean that the xml would be a way to implement the
configuration. XML will continue to be the primary supported means of
configuration because there are so many reasons to continue in this
direction versus other templating languages.

But, in the future if you so desire, it may be possible for you to
contribute something cool with velocity. Personally, I don't think
velocity would add value to the process.
