Juergen.schumacher.empolis.com I'm not really happy with the API draft. On the one hand it enforces using DOM for the main part of a record, which may not be the ideal format to talk to an backend and require additional conversions, on the other hand it does not even ensure that attachments are XML. However, I'm also not sure about a better API yet ... I'm thinking about it. Maybe it's a question of the level of abstraction: If you design an "Record XML storage" why not use Records as parameter types and let the storage service care about the best conversion to XML? When you think of a generic XML storage service, it's getting harder.
