OLE Storeage vs XML
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.

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
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.
