- Ray posted XSLT implementation of query framework, and discussed a lot of the considerations and open issues related to this work. Ray also mentioned the applicability of XSLT to producing SQL, and discussed details of this with Hubert. Ali asked about using POJOs instead of DOM objects; Ray was not opposed to this but also felt that DOM objects offer more power and flexibility, given available tools. Ali mentioned that it might be worth converting the student/teacher sample to use the XSLT method.
- Ray is going to convert one of the example MDRs (student-teacher) to using this approach so the entire community can see a full example. The community will provide assistance on a best effort basis. The current plan is still to defer actually incorporating this approach into the COSMOS base until after the 1.0 release. Ray will continue enhancing the code he's provided and will attach it to the bugzilla when he's satisfied with it. David to touch base with Mark on this approach.
