I just happens to browse the next SVG Open
conference agenda, and one of the events deals with a new XML specification (jst
a working draft now) : SVG's XML Binding language (sXBL). I could just look
at the W3C working draft, and it already sounds very interesting to me, so I
have some questions about this :
- does anybody know some sites with more
informations about this language than just the specification draft
- do you think it could be useful (and / or
possible) to implement it with Batik for example, when the spec become
stable (just a guess) ?
Sorry if you feel it's not the right place for
this question !!
P.S. : One of the reasons why I am potentially
interested in this norm is that, in my company, we use a proprietary ASCII 2D
graphic specification format (not related to XML at all). This
specification allows to define 2D Shapes / Images, with some very simple
embedded dynamic contents (for example, a line can have a variable
length). I am now able (using Batik / Java), to parse the original images
and convert them to SVG without loosing anything, and we use it daily
But I could not find any "normative" way to keep
the original dynamic contents in the SVG file. Could sXBL be such a
solution for the future ?
