The DXL buzz 16 Sep, 2004
Got to love those freaky coincidences. Recently, I actually started to play with Domino’s XML implementation, DXL. DXL is pretty damn good, thanks to people like Ned Batchelder and Dick Annicchiarico. Over the past couple of years, there have been some discussions on OpenNTF and the Lotus Developer Domain concerning harnessing the power of DXL to produce a new “designer client” — whether that’s for us poor deprived Mac developers, or as a way of introducing a sub-set of designer functions to business developers.
Well, we’re a step closer to such a complex DXL tool thanks to Ian Sherwood and Mac Guidera. These guys have delivered the first release of DXLPeek, a DXL-based alternative to the aged (but way cool) NotesPeek, originally developed as a hobby project by Ned B. Way to go guys!
So, what else in the big freaky coincidence? Well, Damien has a post about using Domino as a blogging tool, and this has provoked some interesting discussion, with Stan resurrecting the idea of the lightweight designer client. Also, Bruce asks the question Do you DXL?
