XRX is like Exyus
i've been working on my exyus web engine for close to a year now. it's working fine and needs some 'freshening up' (clean UI for user/security management and expanded caching services). i'm also always on the lookout for similar patterns and found one today that looks like it started just about the same time i began my work. it's called XRX for XForms/REST/XQuery.
XRX relies on three standards:
- XForms on the client
- REST interfaces
- XQuery on the server
These three standards have been created by the w3c standards organization and represent their vision of the future of web application development.
interesting stuff. i decided early on to skip the XForms work. mostly because support for clients was still pretty weak and because i wanted to be sure to focus on the REST parts to make the server very powerful. i also decided to settle on XSLT/XPath/XPointer instead of XQuery. again, mostly due to the quality of tools i found when i started a year ago.
