My question about "the future"
is what the plan or goal for making xml-apis "match" what ever
is in a particular version of JRE's?
I know in 1.3, they sure didn't, in
1.4, they were close, but not quite, and there were differences between
IBM's and Sun's (not sure about others).
And ... not sure about 1.5 ... maybe
they match exactly?
So, my question is, is there a real
efffort to be sure they match exactly for any particular future generation
of JRE's, or,
is it a deliberate plan to allow your
selves the flexibility to differ from current JRE's, so you can, if desired,
get a "head start" ,
so to speak, on new specs?
Again, any insights welcome.
