Hi;

I just wanted to mention.. Apple and IBM had this nice standard that Microsoft
killed because it would compete with OLE/COM.

The source code (AIX, OS/2 and Windows) was once available on IBM's website but
I was unable to find it nowadays. This kind of technology is required since,
even for Microsoft, the desktop is moving back from the network centric scheme.
If anyone is interested and has some good contacts at IBM or Apple, please
rescue it :).


it reads 1994, years before XML has taken over to be the technology foundation, instead of ole-type containers. There are some projects underway near w3 org that point in that direction but those "boards" need a few years 'till they come to a conclusion. Hopelly, them have knowledge of these earlier attempts.

cheers
