Elliotte’s Predictions for XML in 2007

Preface to Nostradamus Book

Elliotte Rusty Harold just wrote a piece at IBM developerWorks entitled Ten predictions for XML in 2007. In particular he predicts success for XQuery, the Atom Publishing Protocol, rejoices about seeing the XProc effort going forward, and also says that "XForms, by contrast [with Web Forms 2.0], is ready to take off."

We sure agree with Eliotte that XForms is ready to take off. The XForms 1.1 specification is almost ready to enter last call at W3C, and at Orbeon we have shown with Orbeon Forms that XForms in the browser is not a requirement to reap the benefits of the XForms technology.
