    OLE Storeage vs XML


    Dan:

    I starting re-arhitect application which curently use Oracle database where
    it doesn't have to be used. Ilike you articles about using OLE storage which
    is applicable in my case.
    But now looks like XML became more generic way.
    I will really appreciate your input on this mater.

    Sincerely
    Samuil Shpits.

    I really can't comment since I have no idea what your case is.

    But I will make this observation: For all that we software developers are
    "logical and rational", we
    are as subject to fads and hype as anyone - perhaps more so. Now, I'm not
    suggesting that XML
    is just a fad - it's a very cool technology. But whenever something cool
    comes along we tend to
    take the approach of just throwing it at every problem in site.
    There is no substitute for taking the time to understand ALL the available
    technologies and deciding
    which one is best for your particular application. I've learned this lesson
    the hard way time and time
    again.

    I can imagine quite a few applications where XML is a better solution than
    OLE structured storage. I
    can imagine just as many where it's benefits would be meaningless and using
    it would just complicate
    the code and reduce performance.
